Richmond Times-Dispatch (VA) - December 21, 2005
Mary Soule' Bowles Barrick, age 84, also known as "Rusty", passed away December 18, 2005. She was preceded in death by her husband, Paul O. Barrick; parents, Everitt and Edna Bowles; and brothers, Miles and Raymond Bowles. Rusty was a veteran of World War II where she was a Medical Technician in WAC's for approximately three years spending all that time in the U.S. After discharge, she attended MCV's School of Nursing, where she received her RN. The Korean Conflict started so she went back into the Army as a lieutenant. Mary spent part of her tour in the U.S. but also went to Germany. She was stationed at several bases but ended with the 240th Station Hospital in Bad Kreizmoah. This is where she met her husband. They were married November 22, 1950 and spent their honeymoon in Heidelberg. Paul was discharged a few weeks after their marriage and was sent home. Rusty resigned her commission so she too could come home. They lived in Pennsylvania for nine years, then moved to Virginia so she could care for her aging father. After her father's death, she nursed at E.G. Williams TB Sanatorium in Richmond, Westminster Canterbury, and the Virginia Correctional Center for Women. After 35 years of nursing, she retired to care for her husband for six years before his death. She was adjutant for American Legion Post 215 in Goochland for many years, a member of Bethel United Methodist Church on Cardwell Rd. Survivors are a daughter, Soule' E. and husband, Kevin Wellons, of Salem, Va.; sons, Malcolm P. and Twila B. Barrick, and Miles and Debbie Barrick of Goochland; sister, Edith and Ted Koss; sister-in-law, Evelyn L. Bowles; three grandsons, Paul K. Wellons, Joseph P. and Taylor K. Barrick; granddaughter, Kim Hill; and great-granddaughter, Camden Hill. Remains rest at Norman's Funeral Home, Goochland, where family will receive friends 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday. Interment will be in the Field of Honor at Greenwood Memorial Gardens. Pallbearers will be members of American Legion Post 215. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to American Legion Post 215 Building Fund, Bethel United Methodist Church or Centerville County 3 Fire and Rescue. Funeral services will be held 11 a.m. Wednesday at Bethel United Methodist Church.
