Elizabeth Barath was a caring wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She left this world with no regrets on April 16, 2022, at the wise age of 90.

A celebration of her life is 3 p.m. May 14 at Paris First Assembly of God Church, 213 W Blackburn Street, Paris. Following the celebration of life, her children will have a gathering in Mrs. Barath’s home of 62 years. Friends are invited to join them for food, fellowship and memories.

Mrs. Barath was born April 20, 1931, in Budapest, Hungary, the daughter of István and Erzsébet Nemes.

 In 1956, during the aftermath of the Hungarian Revolution, she fled her home and came to the Unites States with her husband, Louis Kerekgyarto. Together, they had three children: Lillian, Linda and Jim. Several years later, the couple divorced and she married Julius Barath of Paris in January 1991. They remained happily married until his passing in 2006. 

Mrs. Barath is survived by her two daughters, Lillian Kerekgyarto of West Terre Haute and Linda Kerekgyarto of Paris; her son, Jim (Greta)Kerekgyarto of McKinney, Texas; her grandchildren, Heidi (Rodger) Wilson of Owensboro Ky., Chris Kerekgyarto, Steven Kerekgyarto, Nick Kerekgyarto, Olivia Kerekgyarto, Josh Wheelington and Taylor (Rick)Roehrig, all of McKinney Texas; and her great-grandchildren, Harley, Kobe, Autumn and Liam.

Throughout her life, Mrs. Barath had passion for gardening and crafts.  Whether it was a crocheted piece or a quilt it was always signed with a heart.  Her flowers were her friends and she loved spending time spoiling them. However, most of all, she loved God. She formed a strong bond and relationship with the Almighty and was most eager to join the faithful in heaven. 

Mrs. Barath lived a long life full of many experiences and by God’s grace she is now home with him.

Memorial donations may be made to Celebrate Recovery, c/o Paris First Assembly of God, on her behalf.
