Barbara Rose Grimaldi

Our dear friend and great benefactress, Miss Barbara Rose Grimaldi passed away peacefully this past Monday night, June 14, in the care of the Vestiarki Sisters of Jesus in Chipley, Florida.

Miss Grimaldi was known throughout the area for her great love of the Catholic Faith and her tremendous generosity. For those fortunate enough to have known Barbara, it was clear that she was a simple and humble Catholic lady. 

She was one of the six faithful at the first SSPX Mass on the Emerald Coast in 2012.
St. Anthony Mary Claret Chapel was given a permanent home in 2014, when, out of her great loving heart, Barbara donated The Grimaldi Building to the SSPX. All those who benefit from the traditional sacraments of the Church and the Holy Mass at the St. Anthony Mary Claret Chapel, owe Miss Grimaldi their fervent prayers and eternal gratitude.

Fr. Marc Vernoy will celebrate a Requiem High Mass for the repose of the soul of Miss Barbara Grimaldi on Saturday, June 19, 2021, at 2:00 pm.
The ceremony will take place at Emerald Coast Funeral Home | 161 Racetrack Rd. NW | Fort Walton Beach, FL 32547.
