Carolyn Foy Barry

Carolyn Foy Barry died on March 8, 2024 following a lengthy illness. Carolyn’s beautiful smile and sweet disposition brought joy to everyone she met during this difficult journey.

Born on November 25, 1941, Carolyn was the oldest daughter of the late John Wesley and Sallie Mae McCurry Foy.

Her four brothers, John Sanford Foy, Gordon Foy, Raymond Foy, and Robert Foy, preceded her in death.

Carolyn attended Avondale High School and Decatur High School in GA, until she was 16, when the family moved to Orlando, FL where she graduated from William R. Boone High School in 1959. Carolyn overcame many challenges to enjoy a happy and fulfilling life. Carolyn held a variety of jobs during her career and was an early champion of the environment, committing her time and effort to Audubon Bird Counts each year.
