Barbara Jane Marcott was granted her angel wings on November 27th 2011; she was 89. Those who knew her were touched by her sweet, gentle nature. She loved her family first and foremost and she loved her years in the theatre with her husband of 64 years, Leo.
Born in Portland, Oregon, on May 24, 1922, Mrs. Marcott came to Anderson Valley in the early 60s and operated the Valley Inn in Boonville, then Leo’s York Villa in Yorkville for many years. She was very involved in the theatre at Mendocino State College, Ukiah, where she graduated, at age 60. She gave all who knew her such courage and hope and reminded us of the preciousness of life. In our home, we believed in living deeply, laughing often, and loving always.
Mrs. Marcott is survived by her daughters, Kris Heath and Sue Marcott, her granddaughter, Terry Vierra, and her three great-grandchildren, Anthony Houser, Nathan Vierra, and Kayla Vierra.
Barbara and Leo are a team again and, as a friend said, “They have already begun putting smiles on the faces of all those who got to Heaven before them.” We love you Mom. We have wonderful memories and you will always be in our hearts. In memory of a life so beautifully lived, a heart so deeply loved, a Celebration of Life will be held in Yorkville at a later date.
