Joyce Barr

Joyce Pearl Barr of Fredericton, NB, passed away peacefully in her sleep in the Oromocto Public Hospital on July 8th, 2016. She was born to the late Harold and Grace (Greer) Graham, on March 21st, 1927 in Debec, NB, and wife of the late T. Forbes Barr.

Joyce was known and loved by many. She had many careers in her life, her last and favourite being with Gardiner Realty as a Real Estate Agent. She loved the thrill of a deal and a good horse race, meeting new people, and animals, which always seemed to gravitate to her. She provided friendship and counsel through her intuitive gifts. ‎‎

While Joyce was a very social lady, she could often be found spending time with her cat, Rose, 'the most beautiful cat in the world'. After retiring from Real Estate, every winter while she was well, Joyce would travel to Phoenix, AZ, to spend time with her daughter, Dianne, and her family. The rest of the year, Joyce spent much of her time with her daughter, Andrea, and her family. Joyce was always up for shopping and enjoyed travel. ‎

She was the proud mother and grandmother and is survived by her children, Dianne Herd (William), Graeme (Margaret), Chris (Bonny), and Andrea Allen (Richard); grandsons, David Herd (Cathy), Jeffrey Herd (Casey); and granddaughters, Sydney Allen and Greer Allen; as well as her five great grandchildren, RubyGrace, Benjamin, Henry, Louise and Elijah; siblings, Wayne (Connie) and Dennis Graham, Marie Calder, Cecily Fredericks (Reg), Raelene Thereault (Raoul), Sherrill Kinney (Tom) and Glen Graham (Sylvia); as well as several nieces and nephews.

‎Along with her parents and husband, Joyce was preceded in death by her siblings, Keith and Larry Graham and Lona Johnston.
