Cynthia Marie Barry was born March 3, 1961 in Madison to Donald & Kristie (Nighbert) Barry. She
graduated from Madison High School in 1979. After graduation, she started working at the Aunt
Chiladas restaurant in Madison and became manager. She did not work there very long before she met
Kim Verhey. They got married March 6, 1980 at Howard, SD and moved to DeSmet for a few years
before returning to the Madison area working various jobs. They were divorced in 1992. From
1994-2008, she worked at Arctic Cat in the Decal/Service Department prior to the plant closing. Cindy
then started at ECCO, Inc and worked there five years as a Direct Support Professional before leaving
due to illness.
Spending time with her family was most important and spoiling her grandchildren was her favorite thing
to do. She had a special love for her pets and being outdoors enjoying her flowers, mowing her lawn,
feeding the birds, camping, and hosting family gatherings.
Grateful for having shared her life are her daughter-Amber (Garry) Eggert and son-Aaron Verhey both of
Madison; 6 grandchildren-Breanna, Hanna & Sophia Coomes and Raeana, Leo & Janeli Eggert;
mother-Kristie Barry of Madison; sister-Marsha McVey of Madison, Scott (Heather) Barry of Norfolk, NE
& Chad Barry of Sioux Falls; numerous nieces & nephews and her four-legged furball-Miss Kitty.
She was preceded in death by her father, Donald “Red” Barry in 1985.
