Eliza Barry is the wife of William Barry, the mother of Diana and Minnie May Barry, and the resident of Avonlea.


Physical appearanceEdit


On the outside, Mrs. Barry doesn't appear to be a friendly woman. She judged Anne unfairly after she accidently gave Diana currant wine and wouldn't listen to her daughter when she told her that it wasn't Anne's fault. However, under it all, she is actually a very kind and loving woman, wife, and mother. All she wants is for her daughters to be safe and happy. She's also shown to be able to live up to her mistakes when Anne saved Minnie May.


Diana BarryEdit

Mrs. Barry loves her daughter Diana dearly. When she was accidently given currant wine, she forbid Diana from being friends with Anne, even though it was an accident. This put a strain on their relationship. However, after Anne saved Minnie May, she allowed them to be friends again, restoring the closeness between them.
