Condolences for the family of “Winifred Winnie J. Barbaza”

Condolence from Debbie Davis and Nancy Welty on February 21st, 2010 12:00 am

To Uncle Clem, Kris, Michael and Family,
We just learned of Aunt Winnie’s passing. Our Christmas card was returned to us in mid-January. Some of our tech savvy children went on-line recently and found this website for us. We wanted to express our sincere sympathy for the loss of Aunt Winnie. We remember good times during our visits to your homes in Maryland when we were kids, and we pray you will have peace in your lives at this time of sorrow.
It would be wonderful to hear from you.
With love,
Debbie and Nancy and our families

Dear Debbie and Nancy and family.

Thank you so much for your condolances.

WOW, I was so surprised to find this memory of Mom while I was checking the internet as I periodically do to make sure there isn’t any weird stuff on the net! Thanks for the tech-kids who know how to navigate in this cyber world! It has been so long since we have communicated – where to begin. Yes, will never forget the memories of our childhood, Staten Island and Maryland!

Indeed, we are so sad to have lost our Mom, Aunt Winnie last summer. She passed away June 26, 2009 after suffering a brief four month struggle with pancreatic cancer. We were very sad when she received the diagnosis a year ago February 28th. Since she had never had cancer in all of her 88 years, we were shocked when we heard the diagnosis. The blessing is that we provided her with home hospice care, surrounded her with love and she never complained of pain. She hung in there until the end, joining us for her anniversary, Dad’s 88th Birthday and Mike’s 46th. She died four days later.

Aunt Winnie was loved by everyone she touched. She was the life of the family and we all miss her so much! We keep trying to remember to laugh, because she always laughed alot and she would want us to never stop laughing. Her two wonderful grandkids Oscar 9 and Quinn 7 miss thier Nanny very much and talk about her often.

I am still living and working in DC. I don’t think I will ever retire! I have been single for 20 years, but last year just before Mom was diagnosed, a former love came back into my life. So, as God would have it, he became a rock to me, Dad, Mike, Marisa and the kids. You see, since he and I were together 35 years ago, he became a doctor! He was especially wonderful to Mom before she passed away. Recently, we purchased a second home in Camp Hill, PA where Rich is a VA doctor, while I am a consultant in DC at DHS. We are a communiting couple for now! We are planning a summer wedding! As Mom would say – “it must be the luck of the irish”!

In October, Dad moved in with Mike, Marisa and the kids. He is doing well, considering his loss. He and Mom were married 63 years! His days are filled with activities with the family. He is pretty amazing, he still exercises and drives, picking up the kids from school every day.

I too am sorry for the loss of Aunt Ann and wish you the same comfort and peace.

Since I am not tech savvy, I hope you see this response. I called Dad to let him know of your message. He is going to tell Mike to check this site. So, you may see another note from Mike.

Thanks for settng up this tribute page to Mom. I love it.

Hope to hear from you!

Dear Debbie, Nancy and family,

Amazing to find this! Thanks to the cyber-kids!

Mom passed away last summer after a four month struggle with pancreatic cancer. We were very sad, but kept her comfortable at home with hospice care, love and laughter. She died four days after Dad and Mike

Dear Kris. We met many,many years ago when I stayed with Jack and John in Washington. John wrote me at christmas that your mother had died. I had no idea how to contact you until I started to search on-line today. She and my mother -Mary Quinn nee kelly were first cousins. your grandmotherKelly and my grandfather martin Kelly were brother and sister. I hope you and your family are well

Condolence from Kristina Barbaza on May 10th, 2010 12:00 am

Dear Marion,

How lovely of you to remember my Mother. We always said she was the one who should have visited Ireland because she was “more Irish than the Irish!” She loved being 100% Irish American! You can see from her picture, how much she looked like her Mother, my Irish Nanny and your great aunt!

Of course I remember you very well and have often thought of you and all our relatives in Ireland. I hope everyone is doing very well. I remember your visit to the States and also my visit to Ireland with Uncle Jack, John and John’s sister – Easter 1975! My goodness, how swiftly time passes. I would love to visit Ireland again – perhaps one day!

We have now lost all of our immediate Irish family members, Mom and her siblings – Uncle Jack, Aunt Helen and Aunt Kay. We keep in touch with John G. and I am so glad he is in touch with with you. I must ask him for your address.

This website has held some very special surprises – a message from you and also my first cousins – all family with whom we have lost touch. My Mother was so good about keeping in touch with everyone. I hope we can keep in touch in the future.

Thank you so much for your message. Please say an Irish prayer for Mom – we miss her alot.

I would love to know about your Mom, brothers and sisters?Til we meet again….hello from your US cousins, peace and love.
