Mary was reared in Norfolk Virginia and was a graduate of Booker T. Washington High School in Norfolk, Virginia. She met and married the love of her life, Anthony W. Barnes, Sr. To this union God granted two beautiful children.
Mary was a three ‘C’ woman; she was Caring, Comical as well as Confident. She took great lengths to help others in various areas that would help them live a productive rewarding life. She had dynamic character. She was truly a beautiful person.
Mary worked for Lifetouch Portraits helping to edit school portraits of children that parents eagerly awaited.
Mary had a personal relation with the Lord.
To know Mary was to know that she LOVED to get her hair done every two weeks; she told it how it truly was and said what was on her mind. She enjoyed music and listened to music in the car. Mary loved Monkeys … no one knows why; but still today…she has a bed full of monkeys.
Mary loved to go fishing and believe it or not, fish was also her favorite food.
Mary was preceded in death by her parents, Leroy Boone and Claudine Hunter; her husband, Anthony W. Barnes, Sr. and her brother, William Hunter.
