Obituaries » Jean Marie Lambert

Jean Marie Lambert, 89, of Marshall, passed away in her home on January 5, 2020.

She was born on the family farm, South of Liberal, on February 26, 1930, to Aubrey “Put” and Margaret Curless McClendon.

She began a long teaching career at age 17. She taught at Barton City and Oskaloosa in Barton County. She continued teaching after her marriage to Chester Barnes as they were transferred to various locations throughout the United States. She attended Southwest Missouri State University, Pittsburgh State University, The University of Kansas City, The University of Missouri Catholic University and the New York School of Interior Design in New York City. She owned her own business in the Washington, D.C., area in the 1970s and 1980s.

Jean moved to her beloved country home in Marshall in 1986. She expressed her love of azaleas by planting more than 1,000 of them on the property. She spent many happy years here entertaining family and friends. She was known for hosting an annual “Timber Party” with a huge bonfire, a band, linen-covered tables and chandeliers hanging from the trees.

Jean is survived by her son, Rock Barnes; her beloved grandchild, Dr. Lindsey Devers Basileo and her husband Derek Basileo, and her precious great granddaughters, Gianna, Lia and Evelyn Basileo.

She was predeceased by her brother, Jim McClendon; a daughter, Debbie Reuter; a grandson, William Devers, and her nephew, Lynn McClendon.

Services will be held in February at the Grace Bible Church near Marshall.

Memorial contributions may be made the Marshall Volunteer Fire & Rescue Department, P.O. Box 225, Marshall, Va. 20116.

Condolences or questions about the services may be sent to: Lindsey Devers, 6067 Indian Forest Circle, Lake Worth, Fla. 33463 or by email: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
