BURKE: Margaret Mary (Molly) (née Barker) of Goderich and formerly of Exeter

Posted by on December 16, 2016

March 14 1928 (Toronto ON) – December 15 2016 (Clinton ON).

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep,
If I should die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.

Our sweet mum slipped into the wide-open gates of heaven in the early hours of December 15, 2016 at the HPHA – Clinton Public Hospital. True to form, Mum hung on for Michael’s December 13th birthday–a musical, soulful celebration around her bed. We couldn’t have asked for more.

Molly is the loving mother of Judith (Chuck), Jo-Anne (Ward), and Michael (Deanne). She is grandmother to Dinney children Sunny (Mads), Jayden (Brit), and Maria (Mick); and Simmons children Adam, Jane (Tyler), and Ann (Dan). She boasts four beautiful great-grandchildren: Minni, Maggie, Harper, and Benjamin. Jay and Allan Mallette and Jennifer Gignac and Megan Scruton and their families will remember Mum.

Nieces Lynne, LeeAnn, Margie, and nephew David hold Auntie Molly in their hearts.

Sister, Elsie Veronica (1989) and parents Christine Beard (1959) and Desmond Charles Barker (1975) predecease her.

Finally, we extend our thanks to the unsung heroes who shared in our journey: Dr. J. Jadd (Exeter) and his team, George and Fred Godbolt and associates, Royal Alexandra Marine and General Hospital (Goderich), CCAC, Jasmine Kennedy, Dr. Loretta Seevaratnam and her team, Clinton Public Hospital, and last but certainly not least Goderich Place Retirement Home. Because of their professional and caring approach, the staff members at GP fulfilled our goal—to keep Mum in her own cozy room surrounded by precious memories until her final few days. You did it! Thank you. Please know the depth of our gratitude.

Friends may call at the Haskett Funeral Home, 370 William Street, Exeter on Monday evening 7-9 PM.  A memorial service will be held at Caven Presbyterian Church, 68 Main Street South, Exeter on Tuesday, December 20th at 11 AM with Rev. Robert Adams officiating.  Cremation with interment Exeter Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the South Huron Hospital Foundation – Jessica’s House or a charity of your choice are appreciated by Molly’s family.

Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints. Psalm 116:15
