  • We especially enjoyed fellowship with Joy in the Wed morning Bible Study.
    The sharing was informative and lively.

  • Dear Jim
    We are sadden by Joy’s passing. We have many memories of her from church and our many discussions at bible study. May God give you and your family peace at this time.

  • Jim, & Family,
    You and Joy have always had a special place in my Heart. It saddens us greatly at her Loss. She was a special Lady, and I will always be fond of our Memories together as family, and when you and she lived in Jackson, MS, and she was my Health and Civics teacher in 7th grade, at Forest Hill Jr High. It was always a good time when we had our visits together then. You and she were always so much more than just cousins!
    I enjoyed the few times we had visits when I was on the road through the years.
    I am so sorry We cannot be there with you, but know that we are there in Spirit, and you have our prayers.
    We love you and we Grieve with thee!
    Doug, Alicia, Threadgill & family

  • My deepest sympathies to the Barry family and friends for the loss of Mrs Barry. In the 1970’s during my grade school and high school days in Medina, Ohio I had some of my fondest memories sitting in the Barry’s driveway after a ballgame reflecting on the topic of the day. Mrs Barry always had a smile and her hospitality and kindness kept me coming back for years. I miss those simpler days and will forever have fond memories of our times together. I regret that due to my travels out of the country I will not be able to attend the service. My prayers go out to Jim, Jay and family. We’ll miss you Mrs Barry . God bless . Mark Easton and family.

  • I’m so sorry, Jim and family. What a beautiful woman. She had such a warm and loving heart and Rinda said she often asked about me.
    I can only share a small part of the loss that envelopes you and hurts so much.
    I loved interacting with Jim and Joy in Sunday school and your thoughts on scripture.
    God loves you all.
