Mother Anna D. Barclay

Anna Barclay

It is with full and heavy heart that my family must share the heartbreaking news that our beloved mother Anna D. Barclay has passed.

And so it came to be that at 3:15 (8:15 am PST today) on the afternoon of April 17, 2012 on Benson Street - Monrovia, our beloved Mother Anna D. Barclay passed surrounded by her oldest daughter, grand, great grand children and other relatives.

The Almighty God in his infinite wisdom and majesty reached down and touched Mama, lifting her spirit to the heavens, to dwell among the saints. Her radiance will shine upon all, as she loves and praises the Lord. It with this faith that we affirm that she now rests in peace, perfect peace.

Sleep on, Mama, sleep, and take thy rest;
Lay down thy head upon the Savior's breast;
We love thee well, but Jesus loves thee best–
Good night! Good night! Good night!

Only "Good night," Mama–not "farewell!"
A little while, and all His saints shall dwell
In hallowed unison indivisible–
Good night! Good night! Good night!

Until we meet again before His throne,
Clothed in the spotless robe He gives His own,
Until we know even as we are known–
Good night Mama! Good night Mama! Good night Mama!

A Prayer
Father of all, we pray to you for those we love, but see no longer: Grant them your peace; let light perpetual shine upon them; and in your loving wisdom and almighty power, work in them the good purpose of your perfect will; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Home going services at St. Thomas Episcopal Church, Monrovia celebrating our beloved mother’s life will be held on Saturday, May 5, 2012 - Additional information to follow:
