Carol Ann Cotton Barr, 77, of Blakely, died Saturday morning August 29, 2020, at the inpatient unit of Allied Hospice, Scranton.  She was preceded in death by her husband, Allen W. Barr, who died July 31, 2010.

Born in New York City, she was the daughter of the late Robert and Florence Sikorski Cotton.  She was educated in New York and New Jersey public schools, and she attended Marywood University.  Prior to retirement, she was employed by Gertrude Hawks, Throop.

Known as Mommy Carol to her children and Grandma Carol to her many grand/great-grandchildren, family was the core of who she was and making special memories with them. Carol loved QVC and shopping. Being the Matriarch to a huge family Carol was very resourceful, especially at Christmas, her favorite holiday. Carol was a lifelong Yankee fan. Marking off her bucket list, she made it to both the old and new stadiums. Carol enjoyed crafting, collecting bells, and filling her walls with family photos. In recent years, Carol added a fairy garden to her backyard where she already had a luscious vegetable garden. Carol will always be remembered for her feistiness and once you were considered family, there was no way out.

Surviving are her children Darlene Fisher and husband Keith, N. Scranton, Denise Cassidy, Scottsville, VA, Michael Cassidy and wife Tina, Milford, PA, James Cassidy and wife Christina, Jessup, and Jennifer Morgan and husband Richard, Archbald; grandchildren, John Cassidy and wife Jessica, Tabitha Henderson and husband Harry Jr., Robert Koller, Kimberly Koller and fiancée Rick Henderson, Matthew, and Zachary Morgan, Julie Krupka, Christopher, Kelsy, and Cole Cassidy, Ashley and Amber Fisher, Diamond Barbur, and Merissa Grace Hoy; great-grandchildren Brandon, Madison, Kayla, Abigail, Harry III, Kalub, Robert, Elliot, Adalynn, Tyler, Eleanor, Victoria, and extended family; a sister, Paulette Cotton and a brother, Ronald Cotton; many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by a daughter, Carol Ann Barbur, and grandson Louis Edward Niedermeier.
