Obituary

Barbara Jane (Timoney) Hayden, 90, of North Adams, MA passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Wednesday, June 26, 2019. She was born on March 23, 1929, a daughter of Walter and Alma (Tremblay) Timoney. A proud lifelong resident of North Adams, Barb attended local schools and graduated from Drury High School. In her younger years, she worked for the New England Telephone Company, and later Crane Company. She owned and operated the Silver Basket Store with her daughter, Beverly. Barb loved gardening, and arranging flowers for Quadland’s and Breen’s flower shops.
She was the widow of Francis Earl “Bud” Hayden, whom she married on October 14, 1950 at St. Francis of Assisi. Bud passed away on December 2, 2007. Barb’s family was always her main focus; she was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Her eyes lit up when she spoke of her dear family, and was spending time with loved ones. She enjoyed cooking, baking, sewing and crafting. Barb made everyone around her feel welcome, special and loved.
Survivors include daughters Bonnie Hayden and husband, Christopher Gillooly; and Beverly Pinsonnault and husband Gary; sons Robert Hayden and wife Lynn and F. Bruce Hayden and his wife Lynn, all of North Adams, MA. Grandchildren Hayden Gillooly; Travis and Abby Pinsonnault, Emily Conley; Tracy Sondrini, Jessica Trombley, Aimee Hayden; Kelly Lafarriere, Shaun Hayden, Amanda McKenney; and Danny Mendez. Great-grandchildren Maylee, Ava, Reese, Reagan, Vivian, Sullivan; Luc, Jackson, Alexi, Nico; Brodie, Ashlyn, Delaney, Tyler, Kyle, Nolan; Jordan, Hope. Sister Rachel Viens of North Adams; Godchild Barbara Ann Viens, as well as nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brother Walter Timoney who died on April 11, 1978.
The most wonderful matriarch---Barb was an extraordinary woman, and set the bar high for good people. Join us in giving cheers to and celebrating a beautiful life well lived.

Sending our sincere condolences. We have so many wonderful memories of Barb that we cherish always. From the first time we met, and I invited you to ride my pony, to the many, many days of swimming, from the pond days to the pool days, to playing "dress-up" in the attic. I'll remember them all. Love always, Maryann Wood.

We are so sorry to hear about Barb's passing.
She was one of the most amazing people we have ever known.
Barb worked for us when she came down to Lake Worth with Bud for over a decade...We always knew the party and the season we're starting when Bud and Barb would walk through the back door of the shop. She was so smart and so helpful and kind. You don't meet people like her very often!
She had just called me at the end of May and was telling me of all the new things going on in North Adam. The new museum they opened sounded very interesting...
Her main focus during conversations were of
course how many new great-grandchildren she had added to the count and how much she enjoyed all her family.
She told me that at mother's Day this year she looked around at all her family... All the generations and thought "Bud and I did this!" She was so proud!
We will miss Barb and feel very fortunate to have known her.
