Obituary

Bethlehem, NY – Jennifer E. Barry, 39, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, May 2nd, 2022.

Jennifer was born in Albany to her parents, Kirsten (Visker) Barry and the late John Barry. She graduated from Duanesburg High School and earned her Bachelor's in Psychology from SUNY Albany and Master’s degree in Social Work from Fordham University. A lifelong learner and avid reader, Jen would have been a student for the rest of her life if she could and had plans to earn her PhD.

Jennifer was a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and worked at various agencies throughout the Capital Region, most recently owning her own practice in Guilderland. Jen thrived in environments where she was able to help others, something at which she excelled.

Her children, Makenzie and Kiernan, were the center of her world. In her spare time, together with her kids, she enjoyed watching competitive cooking shows, going to local fairs, festivals and amusement parks. 

Jen was a lively and energetic person full of strength, even in the face of adversity. She will be deeply missed by all those who knew her.

She leaves behind her beloved children, Makenzie Pratt and Kiernan Pratt; her mother, Kirsten Barry; maternal grandmother, Mary Clare Visker; her siblings, Abby Ruscitto (Ryan) and Bobby Barry (Marianna); nieces and nephews, Stella and Celia Ruscitto and John, Maddy, Jake and Jordan Barry as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins.
