Barr, Bernyce A. (1927? – 16 June 2018)

Bernyce Barr (Celar) at 91 left this Earth on Saturday, June 16, 2018, and drove herself up the highway to heaven to meet her husband, Fred and favorite dog, Gizzy.

Bernyce met Fred in Willard, and they married and started their life outside of Greenwood, WI, in 1944.

They started Barr Minkery in 1946 and worked together in the Mink Business until 1972 when it went from a Mink Ranch to a Pet Food Operation which they operated until sold to Steve and Patti (Barr) in 2006. It remains in the family today.

Bernyce loved her family and all their various businesses. She also enjoyed traveling and going to Las Vegas and any casino or wintering in Florida were her favorite things. Shopping and eating good food ranked right up there also.

Bernyce is survived by four children, Larry (Sheila) Barr of Eau Claire, Tom (Betty) Barr of Oshkosh, Patti (Steve) Denk of Greenwood and Scott Barr of Eau Claire; five grandchildren, Todd, Jamie, Rosie, Jason and Danyal; and14 great grandchildren.

Her family and being with them was her greatest joy!

A Celebration of a Life Well Lived will be on Saturday, August 4, 2018, from 1-4 p.m. at Behind Barr’s in Greenwood.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Clark County Humane Society in Bernyce’s name.

Chippewa Valley Cremation Services of Altoona is serving the family.
