Obituary for Jeanine Isabel Barna

Jeanine Isabel Barna (née Larson) passed away with family by her side November 25, 2023 at Atikokan General Hospital. She was born in Atikokan January 23, 1956, to Lester and Emma Larson.
Jeanine was up for and loved any adventure and in 1985 she met the love of her life and best friend Peter Barna. They lived a full, happy life enjoying new experiences and creating many great memories.
Jeannine worked at the Ministry of Natural Resources; she started right out of high school and built a thirty-eight year career. She loved spending time with family and friends, especially at Turtle Lake, which she enjoyed any time of year.
You could always count of Jeanine to lend a helping hand with anything that needed to be done. She never hesitated when called on to volunteer with organizations around town, and she never shied away from the hard work that came with any of it. Jeanine was a go-getter!
Jeanine will be lovingly remembered by her sons Terry (Bonnie), Brian (Bonnie); grandchildren Grace, Carter, Trinity, Quinten, and Sierra; siblings Phylis (Glen), Telford (Joy), and David (Darlene); many nieces, nephews and other extended family; and many dear friends.
Jeanine was pre-deceased by her loving husband Peter and her parents.
A celebration of her life will be held Friday, December 8, 1 pm, at the Atikokan Legion Hall. Interment will be at a later date. Donations in her memory may be made to the Atikokan General Hospital Foundation, Tamarac House at Thunder Bay Regional HSC, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #145 Atikokan, or an organization of your choice.
