Paige M. Barnes


Paige M. Barnes, 24, of Flora, passed away Sunday, December 17, 2017 at Methodist Hospital Indianapolis from injuries she sustained in an auto wreck Thursday.

Paige was born in Lafayette, on October 19, 1993 to Greg and Michelle Brooks Barnes.

She worked at Stacked Pickle on campus at Purdue since the restaurant opened.

Paige was a graduate of Carroll High School in 2012 where she played volleyball, basketball and softball.  She was on the softball Regional Championship team.  She was attending IVY Tech in Lafayette.  Prior she had attended Indiana University Kokomo.

The family and friends of Paige Mackenzie Barnes, would like to share with you a bit of who this gorgeous girl was and what a blessing she was to all who knew her. Paige loved her family, friends, her two dogs, sports, country music and life.  She had an infectious hearty laugh and a mega watt smile.  She lit up a room with her presence.  If you were lucky enough to know her and be loved by her you were blessed, when she loved you, she loved you completely and unconditionally.  She chose to be a donor at age 16 and will now be a Christmas miracle for those who received her gifts and their families for years to come.  It is our wish that those receiving will do so with a grateful heart and will one day know what a brave young lady she was and what a huge heart she had.  We thank you for the kindness, compassion and caring during this process and pray that the recipients receive their gift without complications or rejection. “Fly High Christmas Angel”

She is survived by her parents: Greg and Michelle Barnes of Flora.  Brother:  Josh Barnes of Flora.  Sister: Kinsey Barnes of Burlington.  Her boyfriend which she made her home with, Logan Jackson of Flora.  Maternal grandparents:  Jerry Barnes, Linda Brookshire and Stan and Jan Gilman all of Burlington.  Several aunts, uncles and cousins.

Paige’s family invites friends to visit Wednesday, December 27, 2017 from 4 pm to 8 pm at Carroll High School.  A celebration of Paige’s life will be at 11:00 AM Thursday, December 28, 2017 at the school.  Rev Larry DeVos will officiate.  Burial to follow at Ball Hill Cemetery, near Cutler.  Memorial donations may be given to Angel Fund, c/o Indiana Donor Network Foundation, 3760 Guion Road, Indianapolis, IN 46222.

    Michelle, Greg, Josh, and Kinsey,
    There are no words to express how deeply sorry I am at the loss of your beautiful Paige. God bless her for her beautiful gift of life to others. Please know you and your family will remain in my prayers. May the love of God comfort you at this difficult time. When I see my Curtis (we were pregnant at the same time but he was born in December), I will think of Paige. The world was so very lucky to have her. A donation will be made as you requested to Angel Fund in her name. God bless you all. Love, Cheryl (Fares) Champagne

    No words can express the sorrow. I pray for you and your family everyday that somehow the pain will lesson as time goes by. I pray that God lifts you up from the emptiness and despair left in your hearts and that only the joy of Paige’s love fills your souls until you are all together again. Much love… Adam and Shannon

    Words cannot express the sorrow I feel for you and your family . Nor Can I understand your pain . I wish I could comfort you. Thinking of your wonderful memories helps but it doesn’t ease the pain. One breath at a time one minute at a time. Praying for you all. I made a small donation in honor of Paige . Take care my friend. Don’t be afraid to reach out to family friends and even strangers.
