Barbara was born in Orange, NJ on April 3, 1934. She grew up in West Orange NJ and graduated from West Orange High School, class of 1952. She went on to attend Cedar Crest College in Allentown, PA. She worked at the Windsor Button Shop in Worcester (while raising her family in Holden MA) before moving to Cape Cod where she worked at the Christmas Tree Shops for many years, before retiring. She loved to sew and had a strong devotion to her Faith.
Barbara was kind, caring, & selfless, always more concerned about those around her than herself. She found most joy spending time with family & friends, especially her many grandchildren and great grandchildren.
