Anna Mae Barnett, 70, of Holmes Beach, died Aug. 6.

She was born in Catlettsburg, Ky., and in 1956 graduated from Catlettsburg High School. She then worked as a telephone switchboard operator in Catlettsburg. She met her husband, Paul Barnett, on his return from serving as a U.S. Marine in the Korean War. They were married July 18, 1959, and moved to Columbus, Ohio.

They moved to Manatee County in 1979 and became residents of Holmes Beach. Anna continued to be a full-time homemaker. She enjoyed painting, gardening and cherished her grandchildren, and spent many hours doing artwork with them. With Paul, she attended the First Church of the Nazarene of Bradenton.

Visitation will be 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 10, at Brown & Sons Funeral Homes & Crematory, 43rd Street Chapel, 604 43rd St.W., Bradenton. A funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. Monday, Aug. 11, also at the Brown & Sons Funeral 43rd Street Chapel.

Mrs. Barnett is survived by husband Paul; son Randy Barnett and wife Dolores; daughter Melissa Morrison and husband Scott of Bradenton, Fla., brother Houston Burke; sisters Donna Stewart and Christine Stewart; and five grandchildren, Austin and John Barnett, and Jamie, Justin and Jarryd Morrison.
