BARRETT, Mary Ellen
It is with deep sadness that the Barrett family announces the passing of Mary Ellen Barrett (Pickett) on March 31, 2020. Mary Ellen is survived by her husband and life-long dance partner of almost 55 years, Gene (John) Barrett. She was so grateful for his love, care and devotion particularly over the last few years; her sister Loretta Pickett; her daughters, Colleen Barrett (John Hannon) and Donna Barrett are forever grateful for her never wavering love and guidance. Grandchildren Patrick, Joel and Claire will dearly miss their Nana. Her grand dog Max will also miss her and her endless supply of treats. Predeceased by her parents Arthur and Marie Pickett (nee Johnston) and her eldest sister, Alice Verstegen (nee Pickett). Many thanks go out to the terrific staff at VON who provided amazing care support. Thank you also to the staff at Trillium Ridge for their care, support and compassion throughout her stay. The family will gather for their visitation, privately, at the Township Chapel of the Gordon F. Tompkins Funeral Homes. Father Brennan will officiate her private Liturgy of the Word Service followed by the Rite of Committal Prayers at St. Mary’s Cemetery. It is the desire of Mary Ellen’s family to acknowledge the love and support given by those who wish that they could attend, but are unable to. Memorial donations, for those wishing, may be made to the KGH Renal Unit or VON Kingston.
