Barbara Hosier

AMENIA — Barbara Hosier passed away with her loving family by her bedside on April 11, 2019. She was a resident of Noble Horizons and former resident of Amenia.

Born at Sharon Hospital, she was the daughter of the late Harry and Louise Brendline.

She was predeceased in 2002, by her husband, George, and father to her surviving sons, Gregg and his fiancée,  Nancy, and Don and his wife, Melissa.

She is also survived by her grandson, Matthew and his wife Brittany, and grandchildren Haley, Quinn and Colby; her sister, Linda and her husband, Wally, and their son, Brian, and family; her brother, Calvin and his wife, Jean, and their children, and grandchildren; her cousin, Joan Tuncy and her companion Chet Lehman; her cousin, Lee Garay and his family; her niece Charlene and her husband, Chuck; her brother-in-law, Dave, and his wife, Vida, and their daughter, Molly; and many other nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her sister and her husband, Cynthia and Charlie Goggins.

Barbara worked at the Viewpoint, Barlow and Kildonan schools for over 40 years. She retired to care for George, who suffered from a long term illness.

She had a heart of gold, and saw the good in everybody. She enjoyed spending time with her family, and looked forward to cooking for her immediate family on holidays.

She was a loving, caring mother and grandmother, who was always concerned with our well being, ahead of hers.

Special thanks to Melissa for years of care, and Linda and Charlene for all of their kindness and help over the years.

She was a resident of Noble Horizons for the last three and a half years, where everybody she met, including the staff,  loved her.

The question arises in one’s mind, will I be missed when I am gone? Yes, Barbara, you will be missed more than you can imagine. 

She is at peace now with George and Boe and many friends and relatives. 

Memorial donations in Barbara’s honor may be sent to the Salisbury Ambulance (www.Salisburyambulance.org) or the Little Guild of St. Francis, 8 Undermountain Road, 285 Sharon-Goshen Turnpike, Cornwall CT 06796.
