In memory of
Marjorie B. Barr
In the love and comfort of her family Marjorie B. (Messier) Barr entered eternal rest on Friday, November 13, 2020 in her Feeding Hills home where she has resided for fifty-nine years. Born and raised in Springfield, MA on July 28, 1941 she graduated from Commerce High School class of 1959. She was wed to the love of her life Warren E. Barr on June 17, 1961, and they enjoyed many years of happiness together raising their family until he passed in 2012. Marjorie was a career homemaker who dedicated herself to her husband, her children, her grandchildren, and her church. She excelled in cake decorating and pie making, sewing, and bookkeeping. She was an active member of Agawam United Methodist Church and later joined Trinity United Methodist Church where she remained an active member and volunteer. As a church volunteer she gave of her time and talents in various ways including Co-chairperson of the Pie Committee making pies to sell at the Agawam UMC Booth at the Big E, Sunshine Basket Committee, and bookkeeping for the preschool program at Agawam UMC. She took pride in being a volunteer usher at Trinity UMC’s annual Boar’s Head Festival and as a member of Trinity’s Coffee Social Hour Committee. In her leisure she was an avid candlepin bowler, enjoyed square dancing with Warren in their youth, reading, butterflies, and birdwatching. Marjorie’s passion in life was to bring joy and comfort to others and she was an extraordinary example of how to live this way. Her gentle giving ways and lively spirit will be greatly missed. Marjorie is survived by her loving daughters; Christine B. Large and her husband Terrance of Grantham, N.H.; Karen L. Barr of Feeding Hills with whom she lived; Dawn B. O’Neil and her husband Jeffrey of Springfield, MA; and Melissa J. Moccio and her husband Frank of Feeding Hills. To cherish her memory, she leaves her adored grandchildren; Kevin J. Large, Sarah E. Large, Britney J. O’Neil, Eric C. O’Neil, Maria R. Moccio, and Sophia K. Moccio. Besides her devoted husband she was predeceased by her mother Marjorie A (Yahnig) Messier and her brother William (B.J.) A. Messier Jr. All services for Marjorie were held privately for the family with burial at Hillcrest Park Cemetery. A celebration of life will be held later.
