It is with heavy hearts and immense sadness that we announce the passing of Eliza Florence Barrett (nee Smith) of Arnold’s Cove, age 68 years.  She passed peacefully in the presence of her loving family at the Health Sciences Centre, St. John’s on Friday, November 17, 2023.

There are no words to express our profound appreciation and gratitude towards Dr. G B Cross Memorial Hospital, Clarenville, staff of 6E at St. Clare’s and staff of 4NA and ICU, Health Sciences Centre for their outpouring support for Florence and us, her family.  Your kindness and compassion will never be forgotten.
