December 14, 1949-October 12, 2012
Always smiling, Bari Lynn Cardiff (neé Goode) passed away peacefully at her home in Missoula, Montana, surrounded by loved ones on October 12, 2012, after a 13-year courageous battle with breast cancer. She was 62 years old.
Bari Lynn was a longtime Weston resident, where she raised her 3 children, Jessica, Christopher and Andrea. She was also the owner of Creative Cakes by Bari Lynn, and everyone in the Fairfield County area (and beyond) enjoyed her cake creations! Creative Cakes continues as Georgetown Cake Shoppe owned by Liz Vitti, a longtime employee of Bari Lynn’s.
Bari Lynn was an avid golfer and made her final residence, her dream home, living on the 6th hole of Canyon River Golf Club in Missoula. She loved food, laughter, animals, painting, music, travel, skiing, snowboarding, softball, hiking and nature, time with family and friends and was always the life of any party!
Bari Lynn is survived by her 3 children, Jessica Murray of Missoula, MT, Christopher Cardiff of Denver, CO, and Andrea Morgan of Toronto, ON, Canada, and their spouses. She is also survived by 6 wonderful grandchildren, Madeline, Alta, Opal, Colby, Lillian and Bennett.
A graveside service will be held Saturday, November 3, 2012, at 10am at Missoula City Cemetery followed a celebration of Bari Lynn’s life at her home in Missoula, MT. In lieu of flowers or cards Bari Lynn wished for donations to be made in her memory to www.bestfriends.org or to your local Humane Society to honor her love for animals.
