During their married life, Williene and Ronnie made homes in Sterling, Marlow, Woodward, the homeplace outside of Sterling, and finally Marlow. Williene was CFO and partner in Model T Dairy until selling out when she became the receptionist for Dr. Henton in Rush Springs. She loved to read, play cards, camp, swim, and cross-stitch. She attended every event that her children and grandchildren were a part of, no matter where or when.

Williene is survived by her three children, Donna, Chet, and Berry; five grandchildren and their spouses, Rebecca and Coy Buchanan, Drew Horning, Whitney Ford, Rachel and John Harrison, Morgan Ford; three great-grandchildren, Trevor Gibson, Katie and Brooklyn Harrison; one brother and his wife, Bob and Bessie Sullivan; two sisters-in-law, Dorothy Ford and Judy Jones; two aunts, Joy Ridener and Doris McCutcheon; her nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Williene was preceded in death by her husband, Ronnie; brother, Pat Barker; sister, Mary Sue Hayes; niece, Deborah Sullivan Ray; and nephew, Duane Sullivan.

A memorial service was held Wednesday, May 30, at First Baptist Church Marlow. Her ashes will be scattered at a later date by her family in places she held dear to her heart.
