Obituary

"LYNN MARIE (WEBER) BARCLAY, loved and cherished wife, mother, sister, daughter, and friend, lost her years-long battle with glioblastoma on June 5, 2018, when she died peacefully surrounded by family in her home. Lynn was born in Aurora, Illinois on December 3, 1949 to Robert and Eleanor Weber. Lynn graduated from Madonna High School and attended Northern Illinois University and Waubonsee Community College, and spent 42 years working for the pediatric practice of Dr. Paul Granoff, including at Rush Copley Pediatrics and Family Medicine. It was a job that she treasured every single day as she touched the hearts of so many children and families in the Fox Valley community. Lynn was best known for her warmth, beauty, grace, and kindness to others. Over the years, Lynn attended countless school events, sports meets, and music recitals of her children and grandchildren with fervent enthusiasm and love. She was happiest when she was spending time with her family, providing care and support to pediatric patients and their families, and tending to her garden.

Lynn is survived by: Robert of Aurora, IL, her loving husband of 47 years; her children and their spouses: Lisa Barclay and Tim Berry of Chevy Chase, MD, Steven and Heather Barclay of Chicago, IL, Gina and Ozgur Ekinci of Aurora, IL; her grandchildren: Eleanor Berry, Christopher Berry, Maeve Berry, Beatrice Barclay, Altay Ekinci, and Selvi Ekinci; her siblings and their spouses: Robert and Anne Weber of Aurora, IL, Patricia and Larry Lawrence of Eckerty, IN, and Kaye and Frank Cosentino of Aurora, IL; her nieces, nephews, and cousins; and her many friends, colleagues, and neighbors.

There will be a private celebration of Lynn's life for family and friends. Those interested in attending should feel free to reach out to a family member for details.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to Big Heart Family Fund in Honor of Lynn Barclay at Rush Copley Medical Center. Inspired by her compassionate and loving spirit, this fund was created in her honor by the physicians with whom Lynn worked. From help with permanent housing to diapers and proper nutrition for newborns, the fund helps families in need, providing health and safety equipment, parenting books, children's books, and developmental toys. Checks can be mailed to Rush Copley Foundation at 2000 Ogden Avenue, Aurora, IL 60504, or you can make a gift online at: www.rushcopley.com/giving/donation and under Designation please choose "Big Heart Family Fund"."
