I didn't know until today about Mrs. Barrington passing. I remember her very well as a child growing up at Plainview. She was a sweet lady and had a big beautiful family. So deeply sorry to only now leave my sympathies to you all.

Mrs. Barrington was a faithful supporter of Mission To Haiti. For more than 20 years she sponsored children in Haiti to help them attend school. We will miss Aetna but we know there is life that transcends this present life. One day we can thank her personally.
Sincerely, Bill Nealey, Sr. Director, Mission To Haiti

Aunt Beauton was always the same, smiling, laughing and frisky. You could feel the love from her, no mattter how many years went by, without seeing her, she was always welcoming. Thank you for our visit in Jul, I love you and will miss you and your smile, that is what I think of when I think of you, your warm,sincere smile.

I spent many nights at your home with Susie when I was at Tate High School and have very fond memories of being at your house. So sorry for your loss. Your parents were fun and your mother was a sweetheart. Hopefully you all share wonderful and funny stories to keep her memory alive. God Bless.

Words can't begin to explain the saddness we feel at the passing of this sweet friend. We have so many happy memories of time spent with her. She was a friend, a mentor, a prayer partner and a sister in Christ. She taught both our daughters in Sunday School and planted seeds of God's love in so many children. Only God Himself knows how many lives this dear lady touched. We know the angels rejoiced at her homecoming. We pray God's comfort and peace for those who knew and loved her...especially her sweet family.

Loved Aunt Beauton very much. She taught us many things, but the most important was strength through faith. May you rest in the arms of Jesus, and have fun at that huge Barrington fish fry in Heaven.
