Micheline Bernadette Barnett, nee Persin, was born in Montcornet, France in 1937 and grew up in Laon, France. She was born the 9th child of 11 to Alfred and Marcelle Persin. She had 9 sisters and 1 brother.
In 1961, she met the love of her life, a young American airman by the name of Donald “David” Barnett. They married in 1962 and later had one daughter, Nathalie. She followed him throughout his military career. They eventually settled in Fort Worth, Texas and lived there for many years before moving to Colorado Springs, Colorado. After a few years in Colorado Springs, she followed her husband again but this time for his civilian career and ended up in Germany. She took advantage of the short drive from where they lived in Germany to her family in France and visited her Maman and family often. Her last move was back to Colorado Springs where she loved and lived to help take care of her “bebes”.
Micheline was loved and adored by all who met her. She left this world to become another angel in heaven to watch over her family.
She leaves behind her husband, David; daughter, Nathalie; son-in-law, Joachim; and her 2 granddaughters, Sabrina and Jessica. She also leaves behind 1 sister, 1 brother-in-law, dozens of nieces and nephews and many friends. Micheline will be missed and forever loved by her family.
