Obituary of Patricia Anne Barr

Patricia (Patti) Barr, 72, of Egg Harbor Township, NJ and Sarasota, FL, left this earth peacefully on August 28, 2021 after a sudden and courageous battle. Born January 18, 1949 and raised in Meyersdale, PA, she was later a resident of Somerdale, NJ and worked as the Municipal Court Administrator at the Borough of Somerdale for decades. Patti spent her years of retirement traveling between Florida and New Jersey with the love of her life enjoying the warmth, sunshine, and beaches of Florida and visiting her children and grands in New Jersey. She was famous for her impromptu, late night trips to Atlantic City to play Joker Poker and Wonder Woman slot machines. She played poker with her “Card Girls” for 40 years. “Mimi” was always the line leader of the “Pizza Dance” with her grandkids. She and Chuck enjoyed many sporting events, including attending the final World Series Game of 1980, when the Phillies clinched the title. They traveled to many warm destinations and sunny islands, and both cherished their trips to Disney with their family. She had a great appreciation for the music of Queen and Prince. She spent her life loving and raising her Old English Sheepdogs (Arnie, Hollie, Ralph, Shep, Bo and Baby Dog). The door to her home was always open to everyone, and she treated her children’s friends like they were her own. Patti lived her life her way, and it was filled with unconditional love and contagious laughter. Patti is survived by her devoted husband of 53 years, Charles Barr of Egg Harbor Twp., NJ ; Children Susan Doran of Egg Harbor Twp., NJ and Patrick (Nadine) Barr of Franklinville, NJ; Grandchildren Ruby and Rose Doran, Lily Fox, Peyton, Parker and Dylan Barr; Siblings Lou (Linda) Tuscano of Meyersdale, PA, Sue (Rich) Dom of Meyersdale, PA, Nancy (Kenny) Rice of Warrenton, VA, Sally Jo Tuscano of Somerset, PA; Nieces and nephews Jen Tuscano, Brian Tuscano, Laura Yutzey, Amy Kerns, Lisa Schafer, Kevin Dom, Jim Rice, Alicia Southwick, Todd Pilkington and Sandy Pilkington McNeal. Preceded in death by her parents, Patrick and Sarah (Carter) Tuscano; Father-in-law and Mother-in-law, Joseph and Catherine (Emerick) Barr; Sister-in-law, Martha Pilkington-Elder. A “Celebration of Life” will be scheduled in the near future in both NJ and PA. Family will provide details at a later date.
