Mom, 3 simple letters that mean so much, Barb was a loving mother and doting grandmother. Her legacy is family and the bond to be there for one another that she instilled in all of us. She especially loved the holidays and the opportunity to decorate for the season and gather with family and friends. Barb brought warmth and comfort to many – her bright eyed smile and genuine nature leave us with abundant memories and joyful hearts.
In retirement years Barb found great joy in nature, particularly the birds that would nest and feed in her yard. They were well-fed and brought much joy. In celebration of Barb’s life and in lieu of flowers the family suggests a memorial donation to Audubon Vermont (act.audubon.org/a/donate-vermont), or a charity of your choice.
A grave-side burial service will be held on Friday, August 14 at Southview Cemetery in North Adams, MA at 11 a.m. PLEASE DO NOT SEND FLOWERS.
