Obituary of Shirley Anna Barton
It is with great sadness but in thankfulness for a life well-lived, we announce the passing of our dear Mom.
Mom was born in Norton, NB, the youngest daughter of Milford and Pearl (Slattery) Kincaid. She was the last surviving member of her immediate family having been predeceased by her brother, Joseph and sisters, Madeleine, Agnes, Katherine and Vivian.
Mom moved to Cumberland Bay in her late teens where she met the love of her life, Lawrence Barton. They were married on May 5, 1956 and moved to Saint John shortly thereafter. They were married for 36 years when Dad passed away in February 1992. She is survived by her children: Kevin, Reevesville, South Carolina, Barry, Grand Bay-Westfield, Pam Stuart (Frank), Saint John; Kimberly Rouleau (Guy), Upper Coverdale, and Stacey McCarthy (John), Halifax and special nephew and godson, David Kincaid, Saint John. Mom will also be missed by her grandchildren Kayla, Brandon and Colin Maloney, Shawn Stuart, Halle McCarthy and Heath & Faith Barton and also several nieces, nephews and in-laws.
Mom was an introvert who devoted her life to her family. More than anything she loved to spend time with us and she loved all of us with her whole heart. She also enjoyed playing cards and crokinole, putting together puzzles, reading and watching her TV medical/police dramas and soaps. She had a strong faith in her Lord and she was a member of Lancaster Baptist Church. She had a generous heart and would give anything she had to help out someone else.
