Eula Mae Barnes was born on January 5th, 1928, in Blair, Oklahoma, to Frances (Polk) and Vernon Campbell. She passed from this life on October 8, 2015.

Eula attended both Blair and Martha schools. She married Jack Barnes on February 24, 1946, in Vernon, Texas. They raised five children in Altus and were owners of the Fairmont Milk distributorship for many years in southwestern Oklahoma and later the Borden Milk distributorship. Additionally, they distributed both Pepsi Cola and Dr. Pepper products. They also built and, in their latter years, ran the Altus Skate Place. Eula, especially, enjoyed her role as the DJ at the Skate Place. She was so fond of the kids who frequented there and it appeared they enjoyed her company as well.

Eula was preceded in death by her parents, husband Jack, brother Curran Campbell, and two infant brothers. Also preceding her were brother-in-law Jake Barnes and three sisters-in-law, Vera Deal, Mae Nell Lees, and Ruth Fischer.

Eula enjoyed her large, loving family which numbers 73 current living direct descendants at last count.
She is survived by four daughters and one son. They are Nancy Thornton and husband Kip of Headrick; Jackie Prickett and husband Bob of Norman; Gloria Goddard and husband Rob of Elk City; Carman LaRue and husband Bill of Edmond; and Rob Barnes and wife Patti of Altus.

Eula is also survived by fifteen grandchildren.
