Bar­bara Simms Spink

Greenwich Time (Sunday) - - OBITUARIES / NEWS -

Bar­bara Simms Spink passed away Sat­ur­day evening, Septem­ber 29th, just shy of her 92nd birth­day. She was al­ways kind and lov­ing to ev­ery­one; grac­ing all with her lovely smile. Her ex­tra­or­di­nary beauty was matched by her ex­tra­or­di­nary spirit through­out her long life. She was strong, too, hav­ing beaten no less than four can­cers over the years!

Bar­bara is sur­vived by her three grate­ful chil­dren Sharon, Wil­liam and James along with her 4 grand­chil­dren and 4 great-grand­chil­dren who all loved her greatly and knew her as “Grand­moom”. Her hus­band of nearly fifty years, Wil­liam O. Spink, pre­de­ceased her in 2006. Her sis­ter Dorothy also pre­de­ceased her.

Bar­bara’s cousin, Jean Scam­mon Hy­land was her dear­est friend but only one of many who will be sad­dened by the pass­ing of such a beau­ti­ful and lov­ing woman. Santa Fe, NM, Su­napee and Ex­eter, NH and Green­wich, CT (where she raised her fam­ily and vol­un­teered for years at Green­wich Hos­pi­tal) were all spe­cial places to her. She was a long-time mem­ber of PEO chap­ters in both Santa Fe and Ex­eter.

A pri­vate fam­ily gath­er­ing will take place in early Novem­ber in Su­napee, NH to re­mem­ber our beau­ti­ful mother.
