Lydia Marie Barner, lately of Charles Town, WV, passed away in her home at age 65 after an extended illness.
Lydia was born on July 28, 1955 in Man, WV to Frank Casey, Sr. and Katy Murasky Casey. She graduated from Man High School. She was married to Frank Melvin Barner for 27 years. They raised two daughters, Eve Marie Barner Gleason and Priscilla Barner Martin.
Lydia’s young adult years included service through Campus Crusade for Christ (now Cru). Her family remembers her as being concerned for her community, volunteering through the Loudoun County Republican Committee, Mosaic Virginia pregnancy center, Joshua’s Hands Fall Festival, and the Home Educators Association of Virginia. Prior to becoming homebound, she was a member of Cornerstone Chapel.
Lydia’s only hope through many troubles was Jesus Christ, whom she confessed as her Savior. She was preceded in death by her father and by her husband. She is survived by her mother, Katy Casey, her children, Eve and Priscilla, and her siblings: Sarah, Vicki, Frank “Junior,” Margaret, John, and Joe, her three grandchildren, as well as many nieces and nephews.
