Melba and Jack will always have a special place in my heart. When I joined the Barnett family back in 1962, they welcomed me with open arms and love and gave this right till the end.
Her memory was amazing. She shared so many memories of the family that Ray especially appreciated.
Melba's stories about her love for Jack, her children and grandchildren and of course golf were always mentioned when we saw her.
She was surrounded by her wonderful sons and their families and by all of us that loved her.
Enjoy your new home together again with Jack. Watch over all of us. With love Pat, Cousin Ray and all our family (Barnett)

I met Melba when she was a PSI/IAAP division officer. And, on a NYC trip with my husband, we had lunch with Melba, Jack, Sue Bauer, Elise Ross, and others. It was such a nice lunch--good food and laughter. We continued to meet for dinner at several international conventions each July. It was such memorable times. Elaine Harrison ❤

I always enjoyed being in Melba’s company. Melba and I got to know one another well when we both served on the NYS Division Board of PSI as we traveled to the various meetings across the State. Regardless of the weather, with Jack driving we would arrive safely. When not discussing PSI business, we would chat about our favorite sport—golf! In my memory she was always wearing her GOLF necklace. She helped enhance my life for which I am thankful. Rest In Peace, Melba.
