Georgina Barry March 31, 1945 - February 17, 2024

Georgina Barry passed peacefully away at the Health Sciences Centre, surrounded by loved ones, after a two-month-long struggle.  She fought hard to return home to her dog Rosie, but it was not meant to be. Predeceased by her parents, George and Nellie Vardy, step-mother, Margaret Vardy; husband, Jack; step-son, Shaun; sister Kay; brothers, Ed and Fred. Left with fond and loving memories her daughter, Stephanie (Rick); step-children, Heather (John), Michael (Beverley); grandchildren, Anna, Adam, Andrew, Jonathan, Tinaya; 5 great grandchildren; and a large circle of family and friends. Resting at Fewer’s Funeral Home in Clarenville on Friday, February 23, 2024 2-4 & 7-9 P.M. Saturday, February 24, 2024 from 10-11:30 A.M. Memorial service to take place from Fewer’s Memorial Chapel, Clarenville on Saturday, February 24, 2024 at 1:00 P.M.

Georgina completed her nursing schooling in 1967 and quickly started working as a public health nurse in Clarenville. Over her more than thirty years of service in the district, she became well-known and was affectionately recognized even after retirement, often greeted with, “Are you Nurse Barry? You gave me my needles!” She was a highly skilled and compassionate nurse, dedicated to assisting those in need.

Georgina, a passionate reader, cherished her Book Club deeply. The highlight of her month was their gatherings, where she reveled in the discussions, embraced and challenged diverse perspectives, and enjoyed the wine.

Georgina loved to travel, but her heart belonged to the cabin she shared with Jack on Terra Nova Lake. Riding the quad and having a boil-up was a cherished activity, with a toasted baloney sandwich being the highlight! The cabin was a place of happiness for friends and family, filled with delicious food, drinks, dancing, and card games.

Volunteering held significant value for Georgina; she dedicated her time to the Crest bus organization, supported the SPCA, and participated in the poppy sales each November.

Stephanie was cherished deeply by Georgina, who held an unwavering love for her. Everywhere they journeyed together, people often commented on their striking resemblance. Their bond was unbreakable, best friends through and through, and it’s this profound love that will help Stephanie in the coming days.

Georgina had a deep love for flowers, and they will be gratefully accepted. Alternatively, for those who prefer, a donation to the Clarenville SPCA would also be appreciated, reflecting her love for animals.

    Our condolences to Georgina’s family
    Our families were always close over the years. My father was first cousin to Georgina’s Dad and I have fond memories of my Father, John Vardy, and my Mother, Jean, spending good times with George and Nellie, in Clarenville and in St. John’s. Georgina was a very warm and loving person and that is how we will remember her. With her passing we remember the family who went before her and the loving family she leaves behind. With lots of fond memories. David and Janet Vardy

    Georgina was a cherished cousin. We didn’t see each other often, but were always a phone call or email away. My sisters and I loved spending time with her, Stephanie and other cousins this summer when we visited. My heart is beyond sad. Losing a mother for many of us is the most difficult loss one can have in a lifetime. We’ll always have the memories. She was a kick! So much fun! Rest in peace, my friend.
