Raetta Barbre Obituary
Raetta Barbre, 72, of Blackfoot, passed away Friday, May 15, 2015 at the Binghman Memorial Hospital.

Raetta was born at Greentop, Missouri on June 12, 1942, the only child born to Ray Hancock and Mary Elizabeth Lay Patterson. She attended school in Missouri, graduating from Marion High School in Iowa.

On October 2, 1971 she married Jerry Barbre at Elko, Nevada. Their marriage was solemnized in the Logan LDS Temple on October 2, 1974.

Raetta was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, where she fulfilled many callings, especially in the Primary and Scouting Programs.

Raetta enjoyed working in the county fairs. She started out working for Hansen's Hoagies and finally decided it was time to open her own booth with her family in 1989, Barbre's Hoppin' Hoagies. She loved being around children and volunteered at the school and was especially happy working in the library.

Raetta loved her family and was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Her favorite times were spent supporting her children and their families in all of their activities.

She is survived by her husband, Jerry Barbre of Blackfoot; her children: Traci (Rosie) Rosenberger of Pocatello, Lee (Kristine) Barbre of Aurora, Illinois, Jimmy (JoAnn) Barbre, David (Shelley) Barbre and Elisha (Terril) Myers, all of Blackfoot; 18 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Ray and Mary Patterson.

Funeral services will be held at 10 a.m. Tuesday, May 19, 2015 at the Riverton Ward LDS Chapel.

The family will meet with friends from 6-8 p.m. Monday, May 18, 2015 at Hawker Funeral Home and again for one hour prior to services at the church. Interment will be in the Mountain View Cemetery in Pocatello. Condolences may be sent to: www.hawkerfuneralhome.com.
