Billi-Jo Jessica Barry, of Cambridge, passed away unexpectedly early Friday, November 19, 2021, at the age of 43.

She leaves behind her parents William and Jessie Barry. A cherished sister to Rhonda Van Belleghem (Mike), Cheryl Barry (Carlos Mayers), and a much loved aunt to Alex and Kassandra Van Belleghem. Also leaving behind many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends from all over. She also leaves behind her fur babies Ruby and Benny, and her feathered babies Sarah and Pearl. She was born with so many obstacles but accomplished so much in her 43 years. Graduating Conestoga College, attending Carlton University in Ottawa on her own, being able to do things with only her mouth that most of us take for granted using our hands. She was born with a condition called arthrogryposis. She had no use of her arms or legs and was confined to a wheelchair. She brought joy and was admired by so many friends and family. An amazing woman who will be sorely missed. Leaving us all to mourn her bigger than life presence.
