Fundraiser Underway To Honor Late Barry Family With Chester Park Memorial
DULUTH, Minn. – It’s been about a little more than a year since the Barry family of four was killed in their Duluth home by another family member.
And now, there’s a positive fundraising effort underway to honor the Barrys at their favorite park known as Chester Park.
Chester is about a mile away from where the Barry family lived.
Daughters Shiway and Sadie spent a lot of fun times at the park.
Community members and relatives, with the support of the city, have launched a $22,000 fundraiser to create the “Shiway and Sadie Barry Memorial” at Chester Park.
The memorial will include a bench and sign dedicated to the family, among other upgrades to the park itself.
If you’d like to help support this effort, there’s a GoFundMe page, a coloring book sale with Sadie’s drawings and a spaghetti dinner fundraiser this Saturday, May 20 from 3 p.m. until 6 p.m. at the Other Place Bar and Grill in Duluth.
