To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Elizabeth Ann Stark (Barter), please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
Elizabeth was born on August 12, 1938 in Stephenville, Newfoundland, Canada, daughter of the late Alexander and Josephine (Robin) Barter. At the early age of 16, she fell in love with William Stark and they were united in marriage on December 11, 1954. The couple made their home in St. Clair Shores and was blessed with five wonderful children of whom she loved and cherished. Elizabeth dedicated her life to her family; and was the epitome of wonderful wife, loving mother and dotting grandmother. Her family always came first and made sure they were raised in a loving home with Christian values. Elizabeth was always involved with her children and grandchildren; she was homeroom mother in school and their biggest fan. She enjoyed spending time with her husband and enjoying his love for cars. Elizabeth enjoyed sewing and cooking. She will always be known for her words of encouragement, her kindred spirit and her sweet smile.
Although we grieve her passing, we are truly grateful for our Sweet Elizabeth Stark, our Matriarch, who taught us to be more loving and blessed by the life she led. Her light will continue to glow in our hearts forever.
Elizabeth is the loving wife of the late William; dearest mother of Thomas, Robert, Timothy (Lisa) and Opie (Jennifer) Stark and Billie Jo (Ronald) Stark-Franz; cherished grandmother of William, David, Kayla, Samantha (Steve), Alan Michael, Alexandra, Damion, Jake, Alexandra, Jacob and the late Jessica; beloved great grandmother of Remington, Arieana, Landan, Piper, Braylon and Avery; dear sister of David, Blanche, Leonard and the late Alec, Eileen and Patsy.
A Celebration of Elizabeth’s Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be addressed to the Karmanos Cancer Institute, 4100 John R St, Detroit, MI 48201. Share memories with family at Faulmannwalsh.com
