Dear Barn Friends,

It is with a heavy heart that we share the passing of Mary Beth Drobish, the founder of The Barn at Spring Brook Farm. As you know, The Barn began as Mary Beth’s dream to combine her passion for farm animals with her love for children, particularly those with disabilities. Since 2005 when the Barn achieved 501(c)(3) status, Mary Beth has been actively involved in all aspects of her beloved mission. Of late, Mary Beth has been struggling with a number of physical, debilitating illnesses but still she was always eager to hear about the Barn. She moved to New Jersey to be close to her daughters and their families and enjoyed being near them and watching her dear grandchildren grow.

On Tuesday we received this message from her children, Amy, Heather and Jeffrey that we are sharing with all of you so that you feel fully informed about the passing of our dear friend and founder:

As many of you may know, over the past several years Mom fought bravely against a heart condition that few could have survived for as long or as well. Mom's heart condition was well managed, but in late October, she had to undergo emergency GI surgery from which her recovery was difficult - ultimately requiring hospitalization and life-saving interventions. Late last week, we all agreed with Mom that it was time to come home to be with her family.

At the time of her discharge on Friday, Mom was fully alert—brimming with verve and good humor—and she had a truly wonderful weekend surrounded by her closest family. We want you to know, too, that over these last weeks Mom was very much aware of your thoughts and prayers, and she was delighted by the many gestures of compassion she received (she was tickled in particular by the recorded Christmas greetings that many of you sent along!). Thank you all so very much for that.

The family is still considering plans for a memorial, and we will let you know as soon as we hear from them regarding the plans. In the meantime, we will continue to honor Mary Beth's legacy by fulfilling our mission of serving the children and families of The Barn. This is a picture of Mary Beth from several years ago that captures her spirit. We hope it makes you smile and brings back fond memories of her.

The Staff, Board of Directors and Advisory Board of The Barn at Spring Brook Farm
