Obituary for Mary Gerock Barrow

Mary Gerock Barrow died January 2, 2019, at Wayne Memorial Hospital. She was surrounded by her family.

Mary was born in Jones County March 29, 1931, to the late Mr. and Mrs. Henry W. Gerock of Maysville, N.C. She was preceded in death by her husband of 60 years, Lt. Col. John E. “Ed” Barrow also of Jones County.

Mary’s high school days were distinguished by academic excellence along with a legendary jump shot as a member of the basketball team. Mary graduated from East Carolina University with a degree in Elementary Education. She was a beloved 4th grade teacher at Meadowlane Elementary School for most of her career. As a military wife, she also taught school in many places throughout the world; Phoenix, Ariz., Ipswich, England, Alamagordo, N.M., and Hahn, Germany. In addition to her love of teaching, she enjoyed playing bridge, cooking and taking care of her family. She also enjoyed making beautiful quilted and crocheted blankets and bedspreads and making woven baskets.

Mary will always be remembered as a loving wife, mother, daughter and friend. She is survived by her loving son, John Jr.; daughter Mary Beth, her husband Scott and grandson Jake, of Wilmington, N.C.; and sister Thelma Williams of Kinston, N.C. and brother Henry W. Gerock of New Bern, N.C.

The family will receive friends on Thursday, January 10, 2019 from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. at New Hope Friends Church on U.S. 70 East, followed by a funeral service at 2:00 p.m. in the sanctuary with Bill Garner officiating. Entombment will follow in the mausoleum at Wayne Memorial Park.
