Maureen “Marnie” Shoemaker Barnes, 70, of Hague, passed away peacefully on Thursday, September 26, 2019 surrounded by family and friends after a long illness. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, October 5 at 2 p.m. in Welch Funeral Home, Marks Chapel, Warsaw, Virginia.

On December 5, 1948, Marnie was born aboard USMC Base Quantico in Virginia to the late Major Louie F. and Stella Shoemaker. After moving to Westmoreland County, she graduated from Washington and Lee High School in Montross. After high school, she attended Virginia Commonwealth University.

Marnie is reunited with her beloved husband, Herbert Allen Barnes, who preceded her in death in 2008. In life, the two enjoyed many adventures – traveling, boating and working together. She was co-owner with her husband of Barnes Real Estate, Inc. until 2004.

She was an animal lover with a particular fondness for cats, and throughout the years, many found refuge in her care. She loved gardening and book club, and she and Herb both volunteered with the Westmoreland Players Theater Group.
Marnie is survived by her mother-in-law Lottie Barnes; sister-in-law Elizabeth Ann Carpenter, and her husband, Wayne, of Virginia Beach; brother-in-law John William Barnes Sr., of Coles Point; nieces and nephews, Deborah Cordell, John “Hap” Barnes, Jr., Lisa Neunlist, Doug Carpenter; and, many dear friends.

In keeping with Marnie’s spirit of giving, the family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations in Marnie’s name be made to one of the following: Wendy’s Feline Friends, 1228 Holly Vista Drive, Colonial Beach, VA 22443, or to The Scleroderma Foundation, 300 Rosewood Drive, Suite 105, Danvers, MA 01923.

Marnie & Herb were such a big part of my life when I met them after joining the Westmoreland Players in 1994. They were so supportive of myself and my 3 children. They were wonderful with the kids. I was lucky enough to be asked to join the dinner club that Herb and Marnie were a part of. We had some wonderful times. My greatest memory of Marnie was her kind and loving nature and I loved to hear her laugh. She was always so willing to help, I am attaching a photo of them from my wedding in 2006. Rest in peace Dear Marnie. You are with your precious Herb again.

My memories of Marnie are during our high school and college years together. She was a kind and helping friend, and we had many adventures together. May she Rest In Peace and live fondly in the memories of her friends and family.
