MARILYN L. BARRY Our Mother, Marilyn L. Barry was born to William P. Burns & Lillian Blowe Burns on December 23, 1930. At age 16 she graduated from high school as class Valedictorian and graduated from Our Lady of the Elms College at age 20. She worked as an Engineer for General Electric until she married. On May 1, 1954 Marilyn married William T. Barry and became an instant mother to 3 young children. Bill & Marilyn were married for 49 years until his death in 2003. Over the years, the family moved around the East coast and eventually landed in Southern California in 1963. By 1968 they added 7 more children to their clan which kept Marilyn very busy. They bought a big camper & spent many holidays and summers traveling around the country, seeing the sights and visiting extended family. After a move to Huntington Beach, Marilyn got her dry cleaning license and opened a shop for several years. In 1979, Bill semi-retired to Rancho, California where he & Marilyn established a kiwi farm. Marilyn spent her days working the farm & raising the last 3 kids at home. In 1991 they sold the farm & retired to Hemet. Marilyn leaves behind nine children: Regina Kavanagh, Maryelise Balch, Christopher Barry (Mary), Maureen Souza (Robert), Judy Franks (Jim), Patricia Hayes (Bill), Robert Barry, Suzann Laur (Dan), and David Barry (Kris). She also leaves behind 28 grandchildren and 38 great-grandchildren. Our Mother was a special lady with a kind heart and endless patience.
