Judith Ann Barnett
August 2, 1947 – July 15, 2019
Judy Barnett, a native of Somerset, Pennsylvania and a long time resident of Baker and most recently, Colonial Care Retirement Center, passed away on Monday, July 15th at Our Lady Of The Lake hospital at the age of 71. A Treasure lost, She was an amazing Mom, Wife, Mother-In-Law, Memaw, and friend. Sassy. Kind. Opinionated. Funny. Loved fiercely. Loud. Smart. Loyal. She was preceded in death by her parents Jim and Josephine Robertson, her husband Robert and her son Christopher. She is survived by her brother Robert Robertson of Alexandria,Virginia, her son Jim and his wife Kim and her grandchildren Kaleigh, Micah, Nathan, and Kelci as well as many other family members and friends who will all truly miss her. Judy was very active with many organizations throughout her life but found her calling with the Blue Star Mothers of Louisiana and then ultimately, sadly, the Gold Star Mothers. Judy was an instrumental part of the creation of the Gold Star license plate as well as Survivor Benefits for the family members of Fallen Soldiers. She found a passion in making sure that the fallen are never forgotten. Family and friends are invited to attend a visitation at Greenoaks funeral home on Thursday July 18th from 12:00pm to 2:00pm with a celebration of life service at 2:00pm. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that a donation be made to the Blue Star Mothers of Louisiana.

Judy is very special to me, I never had a sister but she was more like a sister then a cousin. Our birthday days are two days apart, our mothers were sisters so I think that is were we got the link of being sisters. I have many many memories of her, one that comes to mind is my husband and I went to visit the “Barnett’s”, we spent the day at the beach. Bob, my husband and Christopher (I think he was maybe a freshmen) went out on a small boat (not sure what it was called). Judy and I were waiting & waiting & waiting they weren’t coming back, finally we saw them. They had flipped the boat, couldn’t get it up righted. Finally some girls came by and helped. The best part is when we got back to their house they found out that Chris had hidden his report card on them. It wasn’t a good one. I could go on & on, Judy will always be in my thoughts and in my heart. I love you
