Deborah Margaret Barlow
Deborah Margaret Barlow (nee Exley) passed away on March 29 after a short fight with pneumonia and leukemia. She was born in St. Paul, Minn. to Gerald and Lorraine Exley on Jan. 22, 1953. Debbie moved to Orange County in 1984 and to her home in the mountains in Swall Meadows in 2009.
She took exceptional pride in those left to celebrate her life, her husband, Alan Barlow; and her children, Kimberly Farris-Berg (Brian), Kristofer Farris (Elizabeth), Kelly Clark (Andrew) and Karly Foster (Mark). She is also remembered by her eight grandchildren, Molly, Ruby, Griffin, Lauren, Mitchell, Eleanor, Jack and Archer.
Countless family and friends will miss her warm personality and contagious laugh. Debbie lived a very full life. She had a strong sense of faith in God and enjoyed sewing, creating, hiking and fishing. She was an avid advocate for patients at Mammoth Hospital, and was very much involved in charities in the Eastern Sierra.
A funeral mass will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday, at St. Timothy Catholic Church in Laguna Niguel. A small reception will be held in the Bishop area at a later date.
