March 1, 1935 - March 24, 2020

Our mother, Catherine C. Barry, passed away peacefully on March 24, 2020.  She was born on March 1, 1935 in Philadelphia, PA.  She is survived by her husband of nearly 60 years, Gerald; children, Stephen (Cathy) Barry; Ann (Rob) Garrison, and Dave Barry; and grandchildren, Rebecca, Alexander, and Danny Barry, and Teddy and Samantha Garrison.  Catherine was a successful Realtor for 40+ years in the Barrington area, the majority of those years with Baird & Warner, where she was a member of the Founder’s Club.  Many of her clients and colleagues became lifelong friends.  Catherine loved celebrating with family and friends and she was the consummate hostess.  Catherine and Gerry were always supportive of their grandchildren and their many activities and sports.  She enjoyed her volunteer work at House of Hope, which helps families in need. Catherine was a longtime member of St. Anne Catholic Church in Barrington.  A memorial service will be held at St. Anne’s at a later date.  Arrangements were entrusted to Davenport Family Funeral Home.  We will provide information on Mom’s Memorial Service at ( and on this Caringbridge website.

Thank you ALL for the amazing show of support and the wonderful stories and things shared about our mom.

With love,   
Gerry, Steve, Ann, Dave, Cathy, Rob, Rebecca, Alec, Danny, Teddy and Sam.
