Obituary

Barri Elaine McNeil was a soft-spoken, beautiful person with a radiant
smile. She loved God, praying with friends and family, sharing
encouraging scriptures, camping, hiking, cooking, traveling, dancing,
decorating, hair braiding, and taking selfies. She dedicated her life to
being a loving wife, mother, sister, and friend.
Born on June 29, 1957 in the Bronx, NY to the late Robert McNeil Sr.
and Helen McNeil, Barri attended Monroe Business Institute (Monroe
College) where she received an Associates Degree in
Stenography/Secretarial Studies.
She attended New Emanuel Baptist Church in Harlem, NY where she
served as the Hospitality President, Assistant Secretary, Evangelist,
Choir member, and served on the Board of Trustees. Later, Barri
attended Love Gospel Assembly's Bible School in the Bronx, NY.
Barri worked as a Computer Operator/Programmer at Snowbird (Filtered
Water Service) in New York, NY for seventeen years, where she met her
best friend Joseph Carbone. In 1992, their friendship flourished into fun-
filled years which then led to marriage in 2005.
Joe and Barri moved to Mesa, Arizona in 2001. They enjoyed going to
concerts and improvs, road trips, taking turns experimenting with new
recipes, and started camping and hiking more often. Barri began working
as a Physical Therapist, and held several positions at Banner Hospital
until she found her niche within the Medical Records department.
Barri was an active, devoted member of Generation Church where she
loved volunteering for food and clothing ministries. Her favorite was the
Clothing Closet, where she helped provide free clothes and shoes to
families in need. Barri also loved Generation's Girls Night events, and
joined a Life Group where she met a circle of sisters in Christ called the
"Ladies of Patagonia."
Barri leaves behind her beloved husband Joe; two children: Antoine and
Bianca McNeil; three grandchildren: Jordan McNeil, Daijon Christie, and
Kamryn McNeil; Sister: Marcia McNeil; Brothers: Robert and Bryant
McNeil; and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends.
