Barbara Jean Harrington

March 24, 1934 - September 23, 2020

On September 23, 2020, Barbara Jean Harrington passed away peacefully at the age of 86.

Barbara was known to one and all by the name Jean.

She is predeceased by her husband Jack Harrington, her daughter Barb Harrington, brother

Ted Barnett, and sister Joyce Bain.

She is survived by her sons Jack (Joni) Harrington and Dan (Lisa) Harrington, her grandchildren

Jesse (Brandy) Harrington, Jody Harrington, Jacalyn Harrington (Lillian), Erin Harrington, Erica

Harrington, Devyn Harrington-Maye, Emma and Keagan Harrington, Lilli, Celia, Laurel, and

Nora Peters, Brenna, Scarlett, and Isla Patnode. She is also survived by her sister Diana


Jean lived her entire life in Crown Point. She attended Crown Point Central School, raised her

family in Crown Point, and had life -long friends here. She had an endless amount of love and

support for her family. In retirement years she enjoyed spending the winter in Florida with her

husband Jack, and the rest of the time in Crown Point with her family. She loved attending

sporting events at the school and could be heard cheering on her grandchildren and great

grandchildren at their games. She never missed a concert, play, or school activity that her family

was involved in. Jean was extremely lucky and enjoyed playing cards, going to the casino, Jai

Alai, and the dog track, often coming home with winnings. Many a night was spent around the

table, playing cards with family and friends. Jean loved having people stop by for a visit,

welcoming them in, and enjoying their company. She loved listening to music and dancing.

When you think of Jean these things automatically come to mind; refrigerator soup, Cheez it

crackers, 2-1-7, lilacs, cards signed “Happy Days”, and the song “You Are My Sunshine.”

We will all hold your memory in our hearts. Until we meet again, Happy Days!
