Agnes Mabel Heiak was born on October 20, 1923, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa the daughter of Charles and Caroline (Earsa) Heiak. Following graduation from Wilson High School in 1941 in Cedar Rapids she worked for Collins Radio. On September 29, 1943, she married Cletus D. Barry at a ceremony in Cedar Rapids. The couple moved near Tiffin where they began a life together on the farm. This was life that she loved and was so proud of as she was one that believed hard work was just a way of life. She enjoyed her large vegetable gardens, spending time with neighbors and dear friends to play cards, to enjoy good food and cherished lifelong friendships. Aggie was one to lend a hand to anyone, anytime, as many will remember she was simply a very dear kind and caring soul!
