Aldys Roberta Barnett

La Grande


Aldys Roberta Barnett, 69 of La Grande, died July 12 in La Grande.

At her request no services are scheduled.  Arrangements are entrusted to Daniels-Knopp Funeral, Cremation & Life Celebration Center in La Grande.

Aldys was born on Aug. 25, 1942 in Napa, Calif., the daughter of Henry Herman and Florence Charlotte (Larimar) Pfefferkuch.  In her younger life Aldys lived in Napa, Hawaii and Los Angeles before moving to Tacoma where she worked as a nurses aid in the Army hospital.  

One of her patients at the hospital happened to be James Leonard Barnett.  On June 15, 1961 Aldys and Jim were married in Tacoma and then made their home in La Grande.  

Aldys was active with the La Grande Mavericks at one time but her main activity and interest was her dogs.  She and her husband, Jim, bred and raised giant, standard and mini Schnauzers.  The two of them showed all breeds but their Schnauzers were their dogs of choice.

Survivors include her husband of 51 years, Jim of La Grande; daughters, Dyanna Palmer of Frankfort, Ind., Tena Mae Milner of Yuma, Ariz.; five grandchildren; 11 great grandchildren; a brother, William Pfefferkuch of Salem; sister, Rita Mae of California and other relatives. 

 She was preceded in death by her parents and an infant son, James Jr.
