The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof, the world, and they that dwell therein. - Psalm 24: 1 Lucretia Ann Barnes better known as "Lue" by those whom loved her dearly, a free hearted sister, aunt and friend. A Godly life ended when Lucretia Ann Barnes was taken from us. We know she is at rest with our Heavenly Father after suffering for quite awhile. The Lord took her from all her pain and took her to Himself, where there is no pain, no burden, or a tear. Lucretia was born on April 20, 1958, to the loving parents of Harris Watson and Bertha Barnes in Doloroso. Mississippi. She was a graduate of Wilkinson County High School in Woodville, MS (May 1976). She also attended Alcorn State University in Lorman, MS for a number of years. Lucretia accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior on September 6, 1970, at Free Spring Baptist Church in Doloroso. MS. Later, she relocated to Milwaukee, uniting with Greater Galilee Baptist Church where she continued working for the Lord becoming a devoted member where she served faithfully until her death. Before retirement, she worked for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. During her employment at HUD, she became a proud member of the National Organization Blacks In Government (BIG). Lucretia loved the Lord and her family. She enjoyed reading her bible, meeting new people, and traveling. Her most favorite past time was spending time talking on the phone to her loved ones especially to her siblings, nieces/nephews, and friends. She was a compassionate' and extremely generous person. If she had $1.00 in her pocket, you had $.50. That was her way showing love. Her nieces and nephews would often say she was the aunt with the "big bark" and no bite.
