Marjorie Barnhard Obituary
Barhard, Marjorie
Marjorie Bauernschmidt Barnhart, age 91, passed away peacefully on May 13th at The Homeplace in Midway, Kentucky. Born and raised in Baltimore Maryland, daughter of Katerina and John Bauernschmidt, she met her husband (Edward F Barnhart) in Baltimore on a blind date and was married for 48 years until his death in 1993. She graduated from Wilson College (Chambersburg, PA) and worked for a brief time in advertising. Marjorie, a "people person", had a rich sense of humor, artistic talent, and a flare for the dramatic. A talented cartoonist, she illustrated several books, most notably "You Can Always Tell a Freshman", a guide to adjusting to college life. She loved animals, music, reading and spirited conversations. Ever observant, she had an ability to appreciate and share the small wonders of everyday life; watching a butterfly hatch, a bird building its nest, a wildflower. If she was your friend, you had a devoted friend for life. While raising her family, she devoted much of her time helping others, with a particular focus on the community of the visually impaired. The family would like to recognize and thank the caregivers that helped her the last years of her life. Stacye Wilson, Julia Vargas, Gloria Calloway and her dear friend Sue Hatfield who supported her in her home and the entire caring staff at The Homeplace in Midway, Ky. Marjorie is survived by her daughters, Katie O'Brien (Lexington, Ky) and Nancy Barron (Columbus, OH); her niece, Katherine Clarke (Oxon Hill, MD); and granddaughters, Katie and Laurie Barron and Madeline O'Brien. To honor her memory, the family suggests a gift to the (act.alz.org/donate). www.milwardfuneral.com
