Mary "Jane" Barbrey

August 26, 1925January 5, 2019

Mary "Jane" Barbrey, 93, widow of Robert Harry Barbrey, passed away on January 5, 2019. She was the daughter of the late Bobbie and Montie Maynor.

She loved gardening, reading magazines, newspapers, shopping and the Detroit Tigers. Her greatest love was her family and she was never happier than when they were all together. To this end, she provided a beach house every summer for her family, extended family and family of the heart. Her joy was evident as she watched this gathering grow throughout the years. Although Alzheiemer's took pieces of her away from us, to the very end she remained the kind, gentle, grateful and gracious Southern lady she always was.

She is survived by her children Rick (Keith Wells) Barbrey, Bobbie (Lauren) Barbrey, Toby (Lori) Barbrey, and Bonnie (Dave) Meeker; her grandchildren, Sutton (Lee Anne) Barbrey, Kaylan Barbrey, Michael (Ashlee) DePeal, Casey (Chris) Salazar, Ashley Barbrey, Danielle (Matt) Emond, and Jeremiah Meeker; her great grandchildren, Liam and Logan Salazar and Sylvia and Beau Emond, and many loving nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by a daughter, Robin Ann, and her sisters Yvonne and Joy Dene, and her brother, Bobbie.

She was blessed to have amazing and loving caregivers, and the family is very grateful to them, Jeanine Langdon, Tonja Lee, Angie Banks and the Liberty Home Care and Hospice nurses, Debbie, Jeanette and Susan.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Liberty Home Care and Hospice or the charity of your choice.

Aunt Jane always had a smile and a warm hug for me. One of the best memories was watching her and my daughter Leena together.
