Beverly M. Barnes, 90, formerly of New Carlisle, IN, died peacefully in her sleep Sunday, August 19, 2018 at her daughter’s home in Rochester, IL. For the last three years Beverly was lovingly cared for by her eldest daughter, Carol, in TN.
Beverly was born October 10, 1927 in Green Bay, WI to Kenneth and Roseanna Senzig and married Richard C. Barnes on March 28, 1948 in New Carlisle, IN.
She is survived by her three children: Carol (Kent) Bahr of Hixson, TN; Kathy Behl of Rochester, IL and Rick Barnes of LaPorte, IN. Also surviving are seven grand-children, eleven great-grandchildren and a dear friend, Dale Etheridge, of New Carlisle, IN. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, infant daughter and brother.
Beverly was a piano teacher for 40+ years and was loved and adored by all that knew her. She was very crafty, thrifty and resourceful - an original DIYer long before it became fashionable.
A Celebration of Life will be held September 16, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. CST at Monroe’s Crossing in New Carlisle, IN.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association.
