There was no question in anyone's mind that Effi Barry would do exactly what she did last week: stand by her man, as he faced the most difficult days of his life, and she, no doubt, the most difficult days of her own. A picture of composure, Effi Barry sat next to her husband, District of Columbia Mayor Marion Barry--arrested on a drug charge and now seeking help at an addiction center in Florida--as they prayed last Sunday morning, clasping his left hand between her slender, polished hands.

Effi Barry, 63, a regal first lady of Washington, D.C., who endured her husband's very public sex and drug scandal during his tenure as mayor, died early Thursday of leukemia. Barry, who most recently worked for the city health department, was married to former mayor Marion Barry for 14 years. They separated in 1990, not long after he was shown on videotape smoking crack cocaine in a hotel room with an ex-model and begging her to have sex with him. The Barrys divorced three years later.
