Macie was born on February 26, 1929 in McKenzie, Tennessee (the Old 19th). She graduated from Nashville Business College and married Buman Ray Barnes.

In 1955, the family moved to Southern California, where the twins Debbie Jean and Darla June were born in 1958. In 1963 they moved to Saratoga, Northern California, where they remained until Ray retired, at which time they returned to McKenzie.
Macie is survived by her daughters Derinda, Debbie, Darla, her sons-in-law Frank, Quintin, Kevin, her granddaughters Christine and spouse Don, Jessika and spouse Lauren, Lisa and spouse Kamal, her extended granddaughter Sherri and spouse Lem.
