Anna Geraldine Barrett

Anna Geraldine "Gerry" Barrett, 88, Dartmouth, N.S. It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Geraldine Barrett on March 25th, 2016 at Oakwood Terrace, Dartmouth. Born in Young's Cove, N.B., she was the daughter of the late Isaac and Lena Fowler.
Gerry studied music at Mount Allison University where she excelled in piano and organ. There she met husband George who was preparing to enter the Ministry with the United Church. She found fulfillment through her music as she participated in the life and work of their pastoral charges in Glen Margaret, Pugwash, Ottawa, Dartmouth, Fredericton, Moncton, Stellarton and as missionaries in India and Jamaica.
A loving wife and mother, Gerry will be remembered for her selfless devotion to family, her quiet strength and resolve and her kindness. She was most proud of her children and grandchildren and happiest during family gatherings at their home or beloved cottage in Pugwash.
Surviving are her loving husband George, Oakwood Terrace; loving children, Gene (Susan Price), Ruth (Paul Downing), Kevin (Cathy Legacy); grandchildren, Brynle (Jackie), Tessa (Joel), Mark (Marion), Kevin (Seema), Jennifer (Patrick), Kellen (Kristen), Marta (Alfred); great-grandchildren Isaiah, Cameron.
Gerry is predeceased by father Isaac Fowler, mother Lena McNamara, son Paul, and sister Ruth LeBel.
Our deepest gratitude to the staff of Oakwood Terrace for their dedication, compassion and exceptional care.
