Doris Barry, 85, of Akron died Tuesday at the Hospice of Northern Colorado in Greeley.
Mrs. Barry was born Nov. 9, 1918, in Barnard, Mo., to Fred and Merle (Hardisty) Carter. In 1921, she moved with her family to a farm south of Akron. She received her elementary education in one-room schools.
She married Reynold Sundling. After her husband's death in 1945, she moved from the farm to a home in Akron where she lived for the rest of her life. In 1947, she married Bill Barry. As a young adult, she played the piano by ear without formal training. She taught herself how to play the guitar and sang with her sister, Vada, to entertain those attending club meetings, school plays and other social events.
She was a member of the Church of Christ in Akron and often taught the ladies' Bible class. Mrs. Barry enjoyed accumulating a large collection of salt and pepper shakers. She also collected knickknacks of owls and sunflowers and, most recently, stuffed teddy bears. She enjoyed playing Rummikub and various card games. She was often seen playing an electronic game of Solitaire. . .
She was preceded in death by her parents, her sister, Vada Alt, and daughter, Patricia. . .
