Hosanna Katherine Barnes was born April 5th, 1999, in Mena, AR, to her parents, Jason and Katherine Barnes. She went home to be with the Lord on November 29th, 2022, in Conway, Arkansas surrounded by her family.
Hosanna was a member of the Canaanland Church in Mena, Arkansas and attended school in Mena, before graduating from the Pulaski Public School system. She resided at the Conway Human Development Center for the past two years in Conway, Arkansas.
Hosanna was a constant ray of sunshine to her family. Although she faced many health issues throughout her life, she never stopped bringing joy to all who had the privilege of being around her. Hosanna was a definite “Daddy’s girl” and enjoyed worship music and being around her family and nursing staff. Her nurses, Julie Moe of Mena, Arkansas and Cindy Jordan of Smithville, Oklahoma, supported her family in the care of Hosanna before she moved to Little Rock, and then on to CHDC in Conway to receive better therapies.
The testimony of God’s miracle working power in her life was heard around the world through various radio broadcasts, television interviews with her parents and social media websites. The lessons learned from applying faith for her to overcome the various health challenges she faced, birthed two churches and Faith Bootcamp Ministries.
She is preceded in death by her grandparents, Reverend Perry and Sue Hart of Mena, Arkansas and her grandpa, Larry Golding of Modesto, California; and one aunt, Lydia Charlie of Minto, Alaska.
Hosanna is survived by her parents, Jason and Misty Barnes of Pryor, Oklahoma, and Katherine Hart of Conway, Arkansas; her brothers, Elijah, Israel, and Jedidiah Barnes of Conway, Arkansas, and her brother and sister-in-law, Zion and Emma Barnes of Stillwater, Oklahoma; her sister, Genesis Barnes of Conway, Arkansas; her grandmother, Clara Golding of Mena, Arkansas, and her grandfather, James Michael Barnes of Keyes, California; She is also survived by her loving nephews, uncles, aunts and cousins located around the world.
