     She joins in everlasting glory her granddaughter Mytia Dorman, whom she missed with her whole heart.  She leaves to cherish her memory her husband of 35 years, Michael Barry of Bridgeville, DE; her brother Nelson Alston of Bridgeville, DE; her daughter Lysa Reid and son in law Freddie Reid of Dover, DE; son Quixote Dorman of Georgetown, DE; son Kendall Dorman of California; grandchildren: Myriah Alexander of Ellendale, DE, Mya Reid of Dover, DE, Myranda Reid of Dover, DE, Tierra Dorman of Greenwood, DE; four bonus boys: Skylar Brown, Dover, DE, Ian Brown, Dover, DE, D.J.
