Lucy Barnes died the Sabbath of Jan. 27 at 3:45 p.m. from complications of pneumonia. She was 77. She was flown back to Houston
for the funeral. Lucy had moved to Missouri eight months before she died to be closer to her sister and her family. Friends had a special farewell reception for her to honor her many years of devoted service to the church as well as her wonderful
example as a Christian woman. Though she had had several difficult health situations since the move, she was able to return to Corpus Christi, Texas, for the Feast, where many of her Houston friends enjoyed a wonderful Feast with her. Thanks to Mike
and Carol Blackwell for the many hours of comfort and encouragement they extended to her over the final several weeks. Mrs. Barnes was Brian Knowles' secretary for several years. She was also Mr. Armstrong's for a couple of years.
