Barbara worked a wide variety of jobs, including employment at Caddell-Byers Insurance Company and as a beloved waitress at Good Thymes and Bob White’s restaurants.

She is survived by four children, Edward Hughes and his wife Carolyn, Sandra Volis and her husband Peter, Kevin Hughes and his wife Ami, all of Lowell, and Barbara Jean Henderson of Edgewood, MD.
