Margie Glaine Barnes

On Tuesday, January 11, 2022 Margie Glaine Baker Young Barnes passed away at the age of 79 years old in Porter, TX. While she lived with endometriosis carcinoma for the past five years, she ultimately succumbed to congestive heart failure. She passed away at home with her family at her side in her last days.

Margie was born in League City, TX to Ray and Alice Baker of Buffalo, Texas on November 26, 1942. Margie married Loye Wayne Young in Galveston, Texas in March, 1961. They were blessed with 4 children, Loye Wayne, Jr., James Rudolf, Stuart Ray and Margaret Rae. The family moved from Texas to Maryland and Florida and then back to Texas. Loye, Sr. and Margie had a varied career path which included selling real estate, insurance, Avon and Amway. After 24 years of marriage, Margie and Loye divorced, and Margie took up residence in Houston, Texas. Living in Houston, she worked as a medical claims adjuster and an insurance agent secretary, but chose to finish her career working as temporary office help for different oil and gas companies.

In 2003, after meeting online and a whirlwind courtship, Margie married Frank Barnes. Together, they retired and moved to Coldspring, TX. In Coldspring, Margie was introduced to essential oils and the Young Living company. Through her work with Young Living, Margie found and nurtured her passion for natural remedies. She strove to push against the medical and big pharmaceutical status quo. After Frank’s death in 2016, Margie lived on her own and continued to foster her Young Living business. In April, 2021, Margie moved her Young Living business to Porter, TX to be closer to her daughter, Margaret.

Spiritually, Margie had a longstanding faith in Jesus Christ. She accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior as a child, and she excelled at Girls in Action (GA), a missions organization for young girls. She was not gifted with persuasive speech or a soft tongue, but she did profess faith in Jesus as the only means of salvation. Because of this strong conviction, she raised her four children in the Christian faith and left a spiritual legacy for which her children are eternally grateful.

Margie is preceded in death by both of her parents and both husbands. She is survived by her brother, Douglas Baker and his wife Sandy, as well as her children Loye Wayne Young, Jr. and his wife Sue Ellen, James (Jim) Rudolf Young and his wife Chelli, and twins Stuart Ray Young and his wife Laura, and Margaret Rae Young Higgins and her husband Kerry. She was also blessed with 10 grandchildren.
