Online Condolences


  1. I have many fond memories of the Mosher family going back to the 1960’s as we were neighbors. I was a contemporary of Kathy and we spent many an hour outside playing in the neighborhood. Barbara was a loving and fun mother to us all. My sister, Meg, was the same age as Lynn. But of course we all knew each other.
    My condolences to the family from my family.

  2. I have wonderful memories of the whole Mosher family, even the former generation. from the Barrington Yacht Club. Thank you Jay for being a wonderful assistant sailing instructor when i was the sailing instructor at the Yacht Club. Fran, I remember you well after all these years.
    I am praying for the whole family at this difficult time.

  3. Barbara was a loving and welcoming person. Her dinners served up delicious food, great conversation and fun games (in-laws vs. out-laws). We enjoyed everyone of them and remember them fondly.

  4. Recalling memories of Mrs. Mosher, I always think first of her lovely, kind smile. When I was a little girl, she was my picture of a very “fancy” lady. Sending love to all her family in this difficult time. Heaven is a little fancier now.

  5. All my deepest condolences to your entire family. Such a wonderful and heartfelt remembrance of your mother and the remarkable life she lived. Aunt Barbara touched so many lives in such a positive way and her family was everything to her. May she Rest In Peace with the family welcoming her now in Heaven.
