Dionne "Dumpy" Barnett
1957 - 2017
SOMERVILLE - Dionne "Dumpy" Barnett, 60, passed away peacefully surrounded by family and friends on Nov. 25, 2017. Dionne was born on Oct. 22, 1957, in Augusta, daughter of Arthur and Christine (Jones) Barnett. She was a 1976 graduate of Erskine Academy.
Dionne was a very hard working dedicated person. As a child she did everything from raking blue berries to working on the farm. As a single mother she felt it was important to give the best to Nick. Dumpy worked at Statler Tissue, where she was one of the few female paper makers; Crow Rope, and most recently until she was no longer able, Lie-Nielsen.
Dionne was known for her sense of humor, loving heart and caring nature. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends, gardening, making Christmas wreaths and floral arrangements. The love she had for her pets was indescribable. Most of all, Dionne was a loving, caring, devoted mother to her son.
She was predeceased by her maternal grandparents, Robert and Flossie (Hallowell) Jones, her paternal grandparents, Clayton and Violia (Leavitt) Barnett; and her parents, Arthur and Christine (Jones) Barnett.
"Dumpy" is survived by her son Nickolas Barnett of Windsor; her sister Darlene Landry and her husband Earl of Somerville, her brothers, Daniel Barnett and his wife Rose of Somerville and Dana "Farmer" Barnett and his wife Deb of Somerville; several nieces and nephews; and her special friends Bruce and Cheryl Dawson of Jefferson, who provided care and comfort for her in her last days.
A graveside service will be held on Saturday, Dec. 2, at 11 a.m. at West Washington Cemetery, in Washington. An online guestbook may be signed and memories shared at: www.lawrybrothers.com
