NAPLES — Carolyn Marie Barker, 71, of Naples died Monday, Jan. 20, 2014, surrounded by family and loved ones.

“Carol” was the daughter of Arthur and Marie Healey of Eastondale, Mass., loving wife of Paul Barker, who passed away on Feb. 20 at Mercy Hospital in Portland after a long battle with heart issues.

She is survived by her brothers, Brian and Bob; and sister Sharon; and her four sons, Nathan, Matthew, Aaron and Jedediah.

She was there for the birth of her two grandsons, the most recent born on Dec. 26, 2013. Carolyn was a woman of tenacious spirit, who instilled a sense of wonder and imagination to all she touched. She loved children, writing and cooking for those she loved. She loved horses, both riding and training them, but she was most proud of her sons and her life she built with her husband of 45 years.

Carolyn will be cremated and a service will be held in the spring when the lilacs are in bloom.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Mercy Hospital Critical Care, whose loving care helped bring her great relief.
