She was born on June 7, 1937 in Albertville, AL to Otis Kendall Williamson and Olga Viola Burgess.  She married Renton L Barney on November 7, 1959 in Arlington, VA.  On December 6, 2002 their marriage was solemnized in the Manti Temple. Renton preceded her in death on July 22, 2021.
    Zan lived all over the south moving where the work was for her father, who was a carpenter.  She graduated from Stewart High in Stewart, FL.  After graduating high school she moved to Washington DC where she worked for Kiplinger Publishing.

    They retired to Monroe, but Zan wasn’t done working yet.  She got a job with Weber State teaching nursing for a couple of years teaching LPN’s to be RN’s. Renton drove her around the state of Utah so she could do clinicals with her students and Renton golfed while he waited.
