August 14, 1938 - October 4, 2021
Barb Baryl passed away on October 4th, 2021after a long battle with Lewy Body Dementia. She was 83 years old. It would be wrong to say that Barb lost her battle because she never stopped fighting. Through her, we know what resilience and perseverance truly look like. Just because she is no longer here, it doesn't mean she lost her fight. Barb Baryl was born on August 14th, 1938 in Ludington, MI to Theodore and Adeline (Murikes) Sutherland. She spent her childhood in Muskegon, MI. After graduating, Catholic Central High School in Muskegon, MI, Barb moved to Chicago, Illinois where she met her loving husband Dave Baryl. They were married November 25, 1961, and moved to Glenview, Illinois to raise their family. Being avid Chain Of Lakes boaters they decided to move to Lake Villa Illinois in 1977 where they found their dream house in the woods. Unfortunately, Dave was diagnosed and died of Lung Cancer in 1982 at the age of 46. Barb entered the workforce after being widowed at a young age. She worked in the Business Office at the College of Lake County for 15 years. She played the role of mother and father in a time when that wasn't common. Despite these struggles, she was an amazing woman and mother who loved spending time with Greg, Jennifer, and Jeff and their families. She loved her friends, shopping, and traveling. Barb never remarried after the death of her husband Dave, who predeceased her in death 39 years. Her family grieves her loss, but they take comfort knowing that Barb and Dave are together again. She is survived by her daughter, Jennifer (Jim) Barry, Twin Lakes, WI, sons Greg (Wendy) Baryl, Spring Grove, IL, and Jeff (Marcella) Baryl of Antioch. Her sister Mary Ann (the late Bill) Tebeau, Grand Rapids, MI, and Nancy (Bill) Burmeister, Norton Shores, MI. Her grandsons David Baryl, Spring Grove, Collin Barry, St. Paul, MN, Kyle, and Corey Barry, Twin Lakes, WI, and her nieces and nephews in Michigan. Along with her husband Dave, Barb was preceded in death by her parents Thedore and Adeline, stepdad Andrew Murikes, and her sister Donna Mae. The family wishes to thank the staff at The Village of Victory Lakes and Transitions Hospice. Memorial visitation will take place on Saturday, October 30, 2021, from 12:00 until the time of service at 1:30 pm at Ringa Funeral Home, 122 S. Milwaukee Avenue in Lake Villa, Illinois. In lieu of flowers, please consider a contribution in Barbara's memory to the Illinois Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association. 8430 W. Bryn Mawr Ave; Suite 800; Chicago, IL 60631.
