Micky Masters was born on September 5th, 1946 and adopted by Jim and Johnnie Masters. She was raised and lived in Sulphur Springs along with her younger brother Jimmy Masters. She raised her two sons, Jay and Chad with husband Larry “Butch” Young. She then moved around and excelled at her passion of remodeling houses in Dallas, TX, Malibu, CA, Oxford, MS, and Beaufort, SC. She modeled for Neiman Marcus while still a teenager and had the gift to play piano by ear. Creative and artistic, she devoured any project, task, or hobby that she chose to undertake. From painting to music, needlepoint to photography, she conquered every task she decided to tackle.
In 1996, she married Bill Barnett, and quickly expanded her family to include 6 step-children. After a few more moves and a few more remodels, Micky and Bill settled at Lake Quitman, enjoying retirement until Bill’s passing in 2011. As she could never sit still, she moved and remodeled yet again, building her last project in Beaufort, South Carolina.
Micky was preceded in death by her parents, as well as Bill Barnett, and step-daughter Ashley Barnett.
Micky is survived by sons, Jay Young and wife, Michelle; Chad Young and wife, Rhonda; grandchildren, Sara Young, Riley Young, Delaney Young, Kelsey Young, and Mikala Young; stepsons, Cooper, Seth, and Adam Barnett; stepdaughters, Mona Volk and Madeline Barnett; brother, Jimmy Masters and wife Monte. She is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, step-grandchildren and others that affectionately called her “Poppy”.
