Marjorie Minna Bosin Barry

Marjorie Minna Bosin Barry Marjorie M. (Bosin) Barry, 46, of Ashland, OR, and formerly of Warren, PA, died Sunday, May 12, 2019 unexpectedly at her home. She was born March 1, 1973 in Warren, PA, daughter of Susan L. Mahood Bosin McGuire (John Mihalko) and Carl. W. Bosin (Mae Brown). As a young girl, Marje knew her life calling was to work in patient care and worked as a teen at the local Barley Nursing Home in North Warren. After graduating Warren High in 1991, Marje obtained a B.S. in Biology at the College of Notre Dame of Maryland immediately followed by a B.S.N. in Nursing from the University of Maryland. She began her licensed nursing career as a traveling nurse and has worked at many hospitals around the country in various ICU and Surgical departments. She also worked as a research clinician at the City of Hope Cancer Center near Los Angeles, CA. Marje and her dog, Sydney, provided both pet therapy and Reading with Rover services in the hospitals and libraries in Seattle, WA. Following her marriage, her main focus has been allowing her career to follow her husband’s around the country. She has made beautiful homes for them and their two beloved dogs in Seattle, WA, Mission Viejo, CA, and Ashland, OR Marje was a fun-loving, adventurous, and silly spirit who never stopped moving. She made life-long friends wherever she was and was always the planner and organizer of fun- and family-oriented events. She was the caregiver in any group and was quick to put her career on hold to help several family members through long-term illnesses and treatments. Marje was vivacious and left a lasting impression wherever she went. Marje enjoyed horseback riding, stand-up paddle boarding, bowling, gardening, reading, hosting parties, and good food. Marje was truly a world traveler, visiting many destinations all over Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, South America, and tropical destinations. Marje was preceded in death by her maternal and paternal grandparents; a brother, Jeffery P. Bosin; two Aunts; and an Uncle. Marje is survived by her husband, Todd S. Barry, whom she married on May 5, 2003, and their two labradoodles, Sydney and Phinney. She is also survived by her parents Susan L. Mahood Bosin McGuire (John Mihalko) and Carl. W. Bosin (Mae Brown); one sister, Kelli S. Bosin Ford; two brothers-in-law, Craig Barry (Sun Valley, ID) and Brian and Erin Barry (Richland, WA); two nieces, Kennedy L. Ford and Reese Barry; and one nephew, Cole Barry; her Mother-In-Law, Veryl Lord (Palm Desert, CA); and her Father-in-Law, Dennis Barry (Greensboro, NC) and several aunts, uncles, and cousins. She is also survived by loving Uncle and Aunt, Greg and Kris Moylan, of Delray Beach, FL (formerly of Warren) who were relatives, friends, and traveling companions of Marje and Todd.

Dearest Marjorie,

My heart broke into a million little pieces when I learned of your passing. I had only met you and shared time with you on three different occasions (having just relocated to Ashland). I was already deeply sad to learn that you and Todd would be relocating back to California. But, I was most grateful that we were able to share time with the two of you and discuss future trips where we could meet again. You called me a "kindred spirit" the last night we shared beers together by the fire and I can only say that I felt 100% the same way. Upon learning of your passing, I felt as though I had lost a life long friend. You were a gentle and GIANT soul. I remember the first time we walked over to David's farm and saw you standing on the bridge. I saw your smile. You have a smile that could light up an entire day (bigger than just lighting up a room). I will forever cherish the brevity of time that we shared together - but, please know that I will never ever forget you/your presence, your heart and your kind soul. Rest in Joy, my dear friend. My heart is deeply sad that we won't share earthly experiences together. It seems every sunset we watch will be in honor of your life.

My deepest condolences for Todd, the beautiful pups, family and friends who shared far more time with Marj.

It is with a great sadness that we learned of Marje's death.
We will always have in our mind, and especially in our heart, these days spent together at Mission Viejo in July 2010. Marje had just experienced a painful ordeal that she overcame with courage. We will keep her radiant smile and her joy of living like in the pictures attached.
All our thoughts go to our friend Todd and to Marje's family, especially her mum, whom we had the chance to meet during our stay.
We will be with you this Thursday
We know, it's very little In these moments, words are ridiculous
But we like to believe that they will be able to appease a little knowing that you are not alone, that we are with you.
