Barbara Farrell Obituary

Barbara Farrell, 57, of Keyport, New Jersey, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Thursday, February 15, 2024, at Bayshore Medical Center in Holmdel, New Jersey.  Barbara was born on February 1, 1967, in Huntington, New York and grew up in the surrounding New York area.  She graduated from FIT in New York City, where she received her bachelor’s degree.  Throughout her career, Barbara worked as a marketing professional for many years.  While attending her 25th high school reunion, Barbara reconnected with a friend, Steven Parsons, and on October 15, 2011, they were married.  In 2013, Barbara and Steven settled in Keyport, New Jersey.  In her spare time, Barbara enjoyed spending time outdoors, especially at the beach.  She loved delicious food, cooking, and music. 

She especially cherished her yearly trips to Jazz Fest in New Orleans, which she had been doing for many years prior to marrying Steven.  She invited him to attend his first in 2011, and they had been attending yearly since. At JazzFest, she would enjoy the company of the group known as Supper Club Limited International, a large group of friends who attended yearly. Both Barb and Steve have established close relationships with many of the members.   Of course, the music and food of New Orleans created a wonderful backdrop to reaffirm these wonderful bonds during these yearly events. 

Most of all, Barbara loved spending quality time with her family and friends.  She will be deeply missed, forever loved, and never forgotten.

She was predeceased by her parents, Francis and Elizabeth (Kane) Farrell.  Barbara is survived by her loving and devoted husband, Steven Parsons, her brother, Francis “Buddy” Farrell, her cherished niece, Hana Farrell-Wakelin, her beloved cats, Bandit and Sparky, and her large, loving extended family comprised of many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
