Dorothy Russell Barnett, age 86, passed away peacefully, December 22, 2018, with family by her side.
Dorothy was born June 8, 1932, to Frank and Arvilla Russell in Smiths Grove, Kentucky. Her husband, Luther Barnett and her sister, Loraine Dunn, preceded her in death. Her brother, Frank Russell Jr.; sister, Clara Earline Compton; sons Gary, Philip, and Paul Michael; four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren survive her.
