Elwanda Barnett Obituary

Elwanda Barnett, 97, of Mineola, passed away on January 7, 2024.

She was born on April 3, 1926 in Wilson, OK. She went on to graduate nursing school with a career in newborn delivery for many years at Southmore Hospital in Pasadena, TX. We had the privilege of her taking care of family and friends through the years.

She was married to RC Barnett for forty two years before his passing in 1987. They went on to have 3 children, 3 grandchildren, 6 great grandchildren, and 2 great-great grandchildren.

In retirement, Elwanda enjoyed her family, having a hand in raising her grandchildren, as well as the great grandchildren. That comes with attending years of activities each one participated in. Mamaw was able to meet her Great-Great grandchildren before her passing. One of her favorite pastimes was playing games at the table and drinking coffee with family and friends.

Elwanda was preceded in death by her husband, Raymond (RC) Barnett. Her parents, Newt and Audrey Brawley. Her siblings, Gene Brawley and Charlene Kelly. Her children, Billy Wayne Barnett and Brenda Paige and grandson, Raymond Wayne Huckabay.

She is survived by daughter, Janice Willette with husband George Buchannan of Mineola, TX. Granddaughter, Staci Braswell of Forestburg, TX. Granddaughter, Mandy Clary with husband Nick Clary of Arp, TX. Great-grandchildren - Kari and Nick Roig of Iola, TX - Kaci and Parker Wyatt of Rowlett, TX - Travyse Clary, Jordan Clary, Jaxon Clary, Raymond (RC) Clary, all of Arp, TX.
