OBITUARY:

Barbara Ann (Baron) Crosscup passed away at the Sawtelle Family Hospice House on Thursday, December 12th amongst her loving family. A lifelong resident of Everett, Barbara was 76 years of age.

Born and raised in Everett, Barbara was one of seven siblings born to the late Walter E. Baron and Charlotte C. (Boudreau) Baron.

Barbara raised and educated in Everett. Barbara was a graduate of Everett High School, Class of 1958. Barbara married and began her family, two sons and two daughters. Barbara had the very good fortune of remaining in the same home in which she grew up in to raise her family. When the children were iall n school, Barbara began working at Massachusetts General Hospital. She secured a position as secretary, where she would remain for twenty years, retiring in 2006.

Barbara truly cherished her children and enjoyed doing activities with them. She thoroughly enjoyed being shopping companions with her daughters, spending time at the Strawberry Festival in Everett and doing whatever it was that needed to be done, with them! The family loved camping and would travel with the trailer to the White Mountains and Eastern Mountain slopes.

Christmas was always a special time for Barbara and her family. Every year she would prepare her crown roast dinner, which was always superb, with all the fixings! Sugar cookies were always a favorite when the children and grandchildren were playing in the snow. Barbara thoroughly enjoyed lknitting and crocheting. From baby blankets and booties, to afghans, hats and scarfs, her hands were always busy making something for someone. Barbara “gifted” many of her crafts to family, friends, Catholic Charities, the Strawberry Festival and anyone she thought may be in need. Barbara loved being at home working and when the good weather returned after the winter months she could be found outside in her garden. She delighted caring for her raspberry bushes, peach tree and Asian pear tree., all the while capturing the sun and tanning right up!

Barbara’s grandchildren meant the world to her. ‘Nana Barbara’ always made her grandchildren feel very special and each and every one of them, her favorite!

Although she endured quite a bit throughout her lifetime, Barbara never lost her faith and will be remembered as a very sweet woman, who was always kind and loving.

Sadly, in addition to her parents, Barbara was predeceased by her son Brian A. Crosscup, her brothers Ronald and Thomas Baron, and her sister-in-law Marjorie Lattanzio.

Barbara is lovingly survived by her daughter Donna M. Coveney, her husband David of Woburn, David Crosscup, his wife Lucille of Topsfield, Roberta J. Frati of Everett. She is the loving sister of Walter Baron, his wife Gladys of VA., Robert Baron of CT and Patricia Napolitano of NH. She is the dear sister-in-law of Kathleen Barron of Everett. She is the adored “Nana Barbara” of Katherine Lohwasser, her husband Eric of PA, Stephen Coveney of Boston, Arianna Crosscup of Topsfield and Alyssa and Alexa White of Wakefield, along with three great-grandchildren. A Funeral will be held in the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn on Tuesday December 20th at 11 a.m. Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to calling hours Monday evening from 3-7 p.m. Remembrances may be made in Barbara’s memory to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, One Bulfinch Place, 2nd Floor, Boston, MA 02114.

  1. Mom, you had the ability to make each of us feel as though we were your favorite. You were sweet, kind, and always loving. Whenever I see a butterfly, I will be reminded of you. I will carry you in my heart forever. May you rest in peace.
