GERMANTOWN, TENN.—Ann Tomlinson Barnett, 93, of Germantown, Tenn., passed away Oct. 29, 2019 at Regional One Health Medical Center. Born in Helena, Ark. on Jan. 22, 1926 to Mr. & Mrs. E.P. Tomlinson, she grew up in Clarksdale.
She is a graduate of Clarksdale High School and the University of Mississippi. She loved spending football Saturdays in the Grove with her family and friends. She was the youngest 93-year-old you would ever meet. Always the first one there and the last to leave. She enjoyed life to the fullest!
She was a resident at The Village at Germantown where she enjoyed many fond memories with all her friends there over 13 years. She was a member of Germantown United Methodist Church, and took great joy in visiting with her Gilbert Sunday school class and the friends she made there.
She was preceded in death by her son, Dr. John B. Barnett. She is survived by her son, Buzzy Barnett (Karen), her grandchildren, Ryan Barnett, Kristin Teague (Adam), and Melissa Barnett (Andrew). One of her greatest joys was her great grandson, Wyatt Teague. She was especially close to her sister, Martha Jane Howell of Clarksdale and her brother, Lee Tomlinson (Terry) and all her nieces and nephews, whom she loved so dearly.
A celebration of life was held at 2:30 p.m. Nov. 4 at The Village at Germantown, 7820 Walking Horse Cir, Germantown, TN 38138. A reception followed.
