Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1940
Death: Apr. 3, 2005

Sandra M. Barr was known for her warmth, attention to detail and the way she decorated her Franklin Village gift shop, The Village Barn, that kept generations of families coming back. A Bloomfield Hills resident since 1997, she graduated from Birmingham High School. Shortly after graduation, she met her future husband, Gaitskill "Gait" Barr. Brown said one of the many memories she and others will have of her mom will be her personal touch with families, friends, customers and fellow merchants. "My mom made such an effort to befriend people and really get to know them," Brown said. "She was so caring with her children, my husband, her grandchildren, her friends, customers and fellow merchants. She was thoughtful in everything she did. She would find the perfect gift for everybody," Brown said. "She always knew the perfect thing to give people because she loved doing it." Mrs. Barr owned and operated The Village Barn for 25 years before retiring in 2000 and selling the store. She was a member of several boards and committees to promote Franklin Village. She was the founder of the Franklin Village Merchants Association, an advocacy group for local business owners. Through her business, she also raised money for charities such as the Salvation Army and Children's Hospital of Michigan. She received a Special Tribute in 1994 from then state Sen. Michael Bouchard for being in business for two decades as well as for her contributions to charity. Also a former longtime Franklin Village resident, she died from complications of multiple myeloma at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak. Survivors include her husband of 44 years, Gaitskill; three daughters, Brendy Pas, Christy Harris and Suzy Brown; her mother, Norma Beaudoin; a sister; a brother; and four grandchildren. (bio by: Always with Love)
