In Honor of Judy Barton

From Shawnee Barton Merriman

Judy loved going to the park with her daughter and grandkids. We are sponsoring a tree in Amarillo and park bench Austin in her honor. Any money that is left over will go to her 4 grandkids' college funds.

Shawnee here. My dear friend has talked with the parks dept in Amarillo and confirmed the plan to plant a tree for my mom. We are deciding which type of tree would be best. I met with the city representative here in Austin at the park by our house yesterday. We made a plan for where my mom’s bench will go. It brings me joy to say that she approved a spot under my kid’s favorite tree to climb.

More Info

The park was a special place for Judy.  She loved spending time with her daughter and grandkids in parks around Amarillo and Austin.  She and Shawnee played kick the pine cone and napped in the sun often. She loved playing volleyball at the park with her friends and tennis with Shawnee. In Austin, she spent so much time enjoying her kids at the park by our house. We are sponsoring a tree in Memorial Park ($600) In Amarillo and a bench in her honor in Austin ($2400).  Any money that is left over will go to her four grandkids college funds.  Education was really important to her, for her daughter and her grandkids.
