Obituary: Barbara A. Barry

Barbara A. Barry, at 85
Barbara A. (Benway) Barry, 85, died unexpectedly March 20, in Naples, Fla. Born in Somerville, she enjoyed life at Gunrock Beach in Hull, in Bedford, and in Naples.
Mrs. Barry was a fun-loving person, always ready to celebrate and plan a family party. Beyond her family, she loved trips to Disney, Red Sox, red hats, themed dinners, SHS reunions, group photos, shopping, Bananagrams, traveling, and – although she loved to cook –  making reservations.
Beloved wife for 61 years of Joseph M. Barry, together they raised seven children. Mrs. Barry was predeceased by her husband; a son, Paul Barry; and a brother, Robert Benway. She leaves her children: Maureen Malley, of Hull; Michael and Irene Barry, of Cohasset; Susan and Danny Breviglia, of Canton; Steven Barry, of Marshfield; Jim and Sandy Barry, of Hanson; and Joanne Barry of Hull. She was the proud grandmother of 15 cherished grandchildren, and their spouses, and eight adored great-grandchildren. She also leaves her sisters, Edna O’Brien, Arlene Feeley, and Joan Bretta; a sister-in-law, Madelyn Barry; as well as many nieces and nephews and lifelong friends, including her best friend, Cathy Powers.
