- "Miss Josephine Barry is dead."
- —Anne Shirley
Some time after her death, Anne Shirley received letters from her friends and a thin, typewritten communication which she thought was unimportant. It was a letter from Miss Barry's lawyer – he wrote her about the recent death of his client who had left Anne a thousand dollars. Anne grieved for her late benefactor and eventually used the money to pay her school fees.
Miss Josephine had grey hair.
Josephine is a female given name of Hebrew origin and means God will increase.
