Dear Rich and Michael, I am so very sorry to hear this tragic news! I worked with Barbara for many years at LHS, and she was always kind, loving, and giving! She was such a hard worker, and truly had a huge positive impact on so many of our Life Skills students’ lives! She taught them so many useful skills in Culinary Arts! She will be sorely missed by the entire Leominster High School family!

Barbara was a wonderful, thoughtful, caring and beautiful person! She always lifted my spirits and I am so glad she was in my life during our time in Massachusetts. Her spaghetti - which she said she accidentally cooked extra and gave us an entire meal- was to die for.
You will be missed Barbara

Dear Rich and Mike, we are so very sorry and are still in disbelief over Barbara's passing. We have such fond memories of time spent with Barbara and the both of you from summer cookouts at Heather and Mikes, painting pottery, wine tasting and of course wedding dress shopping. We know how much Barbara loved Mike and welcomed Heather into the family and how she really adored her grand-dog Frankie. Rest In Peace Barbara.

I am so very sorry and shocked to hear of Barbara's passing. I actually am her Zumba instructor and she had been attending my classes for many years and always stood in the front row. I can't even imagine how the family is grieving over the loss of such a sweet and kind person. My thoughts and condolences are with the family.

Dear Rich and Michael,

I worked with Barbara and used to spend time with her at Global Fitness. I was so sorry to hear that she passed; she was a super lady and I liked her very much. It was a highlight in my day if I saw her in the hall (as we did not see one another often at school); she was just a good human being and I am so sorry for your loss.

You are in my thoughts.
