Hazel Josephine (Henthorn) Barton

MARRIAGE: 

Henthorn - Barton Wedding
Miss Hazel Henthorn, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Earl Henthorn, was quietly married to James Barton at 9 a.m., Thursday, May 28, at the Baptist parsonage in Kearney.  Rev. Paul V. Goodwin, pastor, officiated with Mr. and Mrs. Ben Leake of Kearney as the only attendants.

The bride was attired in a wine colored chiffon dress with finger tip jacket of the same material, white accessories and wore a nosegay of white rose buds and sweetpeas at the throat.  The groom wore grey.

Mrs. Barton attended the Central City school, graduating with the class of 1930, attended the State Teachers college at Kearney one year and since then has been assistant registrar at the Teachers college in Kearney.  She was taking music and accountant work along with regular duties.

Mr. Barton is a son of Mr. and Mrs. James Barton, Rs., of Kearney.  He is working for a degree in dramatics at the State Teachers college and assisting part time at one of the Safeway stores.

Mr. and Mrs. Barton spent the week-end in the city with her parents and returned to Kearney, where they will continue with their work. (Source:  news clipping hand dated 1936)


OCCUPATION: Newspaper Columnist

A collection of the articles and essays of Hazel Josephine Barton were published in book form,  "A WISE CHOICE OF WINDS." (Note: 124 of the 370 pages are on Google Books)

Book Description
For more than 50 years, Hazel Barton has written articles and essays that deal with everything from aging, to animals, to famous places, to living in Texas and Nebraska, to her own reflections on life. These were most recently published in the San Marcos Record in San Marcos, Texas. Her articles became so popular that people waited anxiously for her next editorial for it always dealt with the human spirit in a way that was clearly unique. A favorite was her series with "Spook," her cat, always on hand to help her clarify her philosophy. Hazel's life has almost spanned the century, and her wisdom is precious, indeed. You will want to linger on every entry.

Review on Amazon.com: Years Of Wisdom All In One Book!
For years I have enjoyed Hazel Barton's articles in the San Marcos Record. Now I have many of her works in one book. I couldn't be more thrilled! When I heard she was retiring from the paper, I was so sad . . . but now I understand why. "Hazel," as her articles are entitled, will live on in "A Wise Choice of Winds." Every story is unique, and every essay a little jewel that makes you feel better about the world you live in. I have used her works in my church, my school and for many other occasions. I highly recommend it. A doting fan.

OBITUARY: 

Hazel Josephine Barton
Date of Birth: November 7, 1912
Date of Death: January 12, 2013
Service Date: Visitation 10 AM, Thursday, January 17 at the First Baptist Church
Funeral Services to follow at 11AM

Hazel Josephine Barton was born to Earl and Gertrude Henthorn in a farm house near  Aurora, Nebraska, November 7, 1912. Over 100 years, her life's journey included residences  of varying lengths of time In Aurora, Bayard, Grand Island, Central City, and Kearney,  Nebraska; Ann Arbor, Michigan: Waco, Texas; Sterling and Lawrence, Kansas; Stillwater,  Oklahoma; Cambridge, Massachusetts; San Marcos, Texas. Her final move in 1949 was to the  banks of the Blanco River near San Marcos where she put down roots, real ones and  figurative ones, until her death on January 12, 2013.

She completed eight grades in one-room country schoolhouses. She was graduated from the Central City (Nebraska) High school at the top of her class in 1930. She took advantage of a  scholarship to attend Kearney (Nebraska) State Teachers College. At the end of the school  year she was offered a position as Assistant Registrar, a position which she held for seven  years. In 1938-39 she attended the United Presbyterian College in Sterling, Kansas.

Other employment for varying lengths of time: University of Michigan; Office of Admissions,  National Bar Association, Ann Arbor, Michigan; Harvard University Office of Ad missions,  Cambridge, Massachusetts; Secretary to the Wing Adjutant and the civilian contractor at  Gary Army Air Field; Secretary to the President, San Marcos Baptist Academy; Secretary to  the Director of the Regional Office of Economic Opportunity, Austin, Texas; interim secretary  to the President of Southwest Texas State University. During the war years she worked as a  volunteer nurse's aide in the Stillwater (Oklahoma) Hospital and as a paid aide in the  Plainview (Texas) Hospital.

She was married to James G. Barton on May 28, 1936. Mr. Barton founded and chaired the  Theatre Department at Texas State University for decades. They celebrated their sixtieth  anniversary seven months before his death on December 13, 1996.

She became a member of the First Baptist Church and the Fidelis Sunday School class in  June, 1952. She was active in the church choir for thirty years.

Music was an important part of her life. Even in her nineties, she could remember a few lines  from a song about Peter Pumpkin that she sang to a candle-lit jack-o-lantern when she was  seven. She was active in church and high school and college choirs. She sang the leading role  in a high school production of "Will Tell" and in a college production of "Desert Song" (where  she met her husband). She wrote appropriate lyrics for a hymn that was sung by a  community choir at the City's Texas Sesquicentennial Celebration.

Hazel was in her mid-seventies when the San Marcos Daily Record gave her the opportunity  to publish the things that were buzzing around in her head in regular columns named  "Hazel." About half of those essays have been published in the book, A Wise Choice of Winds.

Photography became a hobby when she bought a camera to record the growth of her first  grandchild. There are many family pictures but she was equally interested in the beauties of  nature and nature's living creatures. The camera went with her into twenty-five countries  and on a number of drives through scenic areas in her own country. She chose to have the  images put on slides and at this point, the family is wondering what in heck they are going to  do with a collection of more than six thousand slides.

She was preceded in death by her mother and father, Gertrude and Earl Henthorn; her  brother Kenneth Henthorn and wife Mable; husband James Barton; daughter Niki Jo Boynt.  Surviving are daughter Janet Speer and husband Allen; son-in-law Walter A. Boynt, Jr.;  grandson Donovan Carroll; grandson Barton Carroll and wife Carrie; granddaughter Shawna  Currie; Granddaughter-by-choice Kathleen Kelso; great-grandsons Corbin Currie and  Joshua Boynt; great-granddaughters Octavia Currie and Kirsten Boynt.

Hazel requested that this sketch of her life would not be too long and that it would be  concluded with a quotation from Hunter Thompson:

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved  body, but rather to slide in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and proclaiming,  "Wow! What a ride!"

Family will receive friends at 10:00 A.M., and Funeral Services will follow at 11:00 A.M.,  Thursday, January 17, 2013, at the First Baptist Church in San Marcos, with the Rev. Mark  Newton officiating. Private interment.

Contributions in Hazel's memory may be made to the First Baptist Church or the Hays  County Food Bank.
