Miri, as family and friends called her, passed away on 6/9/2021 after a prolonged illness. She survived the Holocaust, as a 5 year old orphan, a miracle given that she escaped Belz'ec death camp. Living with partisans in the Black forest, she was liberated and then immigrated to Israel. She was a proud RN and nursing instructor. Despite everything and against all odds, Miri survived to live 84 years, have a wonderful family, which was the center of her life. She will miss her great-grandson Noah Bigelman’s Bar Mitzvah and many other family events which kept her family so close together. Miri also loved art, classical music, fabrics and antique collections.

Miri was married to Isaac Barr MD, they raised four children (Michal Firsht, Eliav Barr, Merav Grindlinger and Tamar Hermon), nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

Miri was interred in Israel "Menuhat Olam" cemetery in Netanya in the presence of the Barr family and friends.
