Ione Barnes

Aug. 17, 1915 — Dec. 28, 2013

Ione Lucille Barnes, formerly of Pollock Pines, Calif., passed away Dec. 28, 2013. She was born on Aug. 17, 1915, in Buena Vista County, Iowa, on the family farm. She was the second of four daughters born to Earl John and Alta Mae Waters.

After high school Mom was a nanny until she met a young baker by the name of Glenn Barnes. Mom always said it was love at first sight. Three daughters and one son were born to this union: Marlys, Glenda, Patty and Donald. In 1957 Glenn and Ione purchased the Quality Bakery in Concord, Calif. After 20 wonderful years of great memories in the bakery business it was time to retire. From Concord they ended up in Pollock Pines.

After the passing of her beloved Glenn in 2001, Mom stayed in her home until mid-2005, then moved to Washington to live near her son, Don and his wife, Sandie in Silverdale. In February of 2009, she moved to Bridgeview Estates to be near her daughter, Patty and son-in-law, Mike Russell.

Mom leaves behind three daughters, Marlys (Ken) Snasel of Chester, Calif., Glenda (Jim) Hartman of Lincoln, Calif., and Patty (Mike) Russell of Jerome, Idaho; son, Don (Sandie) Barnes of Silverdale, Wash.; 12 grandchildren; 21 great-grandchildren; six great-great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her beloved Glenn; parents, Earl and Alta Waters; her three sisters, Betty Fenski, Gladys Almlie and Ilene Bates; several aunts and uncles; and many friends.

The family extends the most sincere appreciation to the staff at Bridge View Estates, and in Mom’s last few days, the awesome Hospice Visions team.

Funeral services will be held at the Chapel of the Pines, 2855 Cold Springs Road in Placerville, Calif., on Wednesday, Jan. 8, at 11 a.m. Visitation will be held Tuesday evening, Jan. 7, from 6 to 8 p.m., at the funeral home. Interment will follow the service at Westwood Hills Memorial Park in Placerville.
