Lorna Francis Barry

February 28, 1933 – February 27, 2020
Born in the small village of Shelford, England, Lorna left us after a long and brave struggle. She has finally found peace and her well-deserved rest.
Lorna is predeceased by her husband of 66 years, Ron C. Barry and only daughter, Lorraine. She leaves behind 4 sons Ron (Marlene), Rob (Sheila), Ed (Theresa), Andy (Jennifer); 15 grandchildren, 8 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
Lorna, Ron and their first 2 children crossed the Atlantic by ship in 1956. After settling in Victoria they migrated further west, settling in Sooke in 1969 with their 5 children. They soon became immersed in the unique culture, people and politics of their new home. Lorna served a term as Regional Director and 2 terms on the first Sooke Council. She was much respected in those positions. Additionally, there are many locals who will remember the multigenerational gatherings at their home in Saseenos.
We give thanks for all of those memories. There is a great emptiness in her place. May God bless her.
A ceremonial gathering will be announced at a later date.
