Barcus, Marlys B. 86, the "Day Care Lady" of Brooklyn Park passed away comfortably Tuesday, May 7th at Cherrywood Pointe, Assisted Living Roseville, MN. In her home on Brookdale Drive, she fed, fostered and mentored more than 400 Daycare and Latch Key young minds over 20 plus years. In her later years, Marlys struggled with Parkinson's. It took her ability to walk but not her positive, caring, "can do" attitude. She will be missed by family, friends and her Cherrywood Pointe dinner table mates. Left to treasure her memory are her brother Myron Granzow (Petie) and children Randall Barcus (Diana), Karen Armand (Pascual), Thomas Barcus and grandchild, Brady Barcus. Funeral services will be held at Redeemer Covent Church, 7801 Brooklyn Blvd., Brooklyn Park on Tuesday, May 21st, at 11 am with lunch and fellowship to follow.
