Barbara was born in Bronx, NY, daughter of the late Simon and Anne Gold Zaret.
She was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by her family.
Prior to her illness, Barbara worked in retail management for many years and was a dedicated, hard worker.
She was an avid NY Giants fan and loved to listen to music, travel, shop, read and go to the movies. She was happiest spending time with her children and grandchildren.
Her kind heart and generous spirit touched all those who were lucky enough to know her.
Barbara leaves behind her daughters Laura (Joseph) Anastasio of North Branford, Lisa (Stephen) Huzyk of Charlestown, RI, Jacqueline Cole of Orange, her sister Ilene (John) Wehler, her brothers Allen and Robert Zaret, and her grandchildren – Matthew, Alexandra, Zachary, Tyler, Sarah, Gabriella and Natasha.
