Etta Jane Barrett
November 30, 1937 - September 10, 2018
Arrangements are under the care of Dighton-Marler Funeral Home of Stillwater.
Memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. Friday at the Asbury United Methodist Church in Ada.
Etta was born Nov. 30, 1937, to Benjamin and Emma Kathrine (Hink) Risner in Nevark, Arkansas. She was raised in Ada and graduated at Ada High School in 1956.
After high school, Etta married the love of her life, Frank Barrett, on Feb. 16, 1972, in Ada. They celebrated 31 years together before Frank's passing in 2003.
Etta was very dedicated to her work at the Brockway Glass plant, where she worked for over 30 years. After the Brockway Glass plant closed, she then went on to continue her education and earned a bachelor of science degree in environmental science from East Central University.
During her free time, she would love to sew, do trivia or work on her crossword puzzles, which she did daily. She was proud to be a lifetime member of the Asbury Methodist Church in Ada.
Etta is survived by her daughter, Kathy Krebbs and husband, Jeff; two siblings, Carolyn Burns and Steve Risner and wife, Charlotte; five grandchildren, Kayla Isaacs and husband, James, Heather Grinstead and husband, Mitchell, Bonnie Zaunbrecher and husband, Lorenz, Katy Copeland and Scottie Gray and husband, Dakota; and seven great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her husband; parents; one son, Alan Copeland; and three siblings.
Family requests that you have flowers delivered to the church.
