It is with great sadness that our beloved Audrey J. Barboe has passed away on August 8,2017 at the age of 92. In the midst of WWII she found love at the age of eighteen in her beloved husband Robert and moved from England to the U.S. and raised her family of three loving daughters: Linda, Sharon and Diane.
Audrey was a loving and energetic mother and wife who enjoyed her family and friends. She was an avid bingo player, enjoyed dining out and treasured her time with her daughters on the numerous cruises they took together. She was a fan of the King of Rock and Roll and named her Himalayan cat, Presley, after him.
She is survived by her daughters, Linda Palmieri and her husband Rocco of New Smyrna Beach Florida, Sharon Engle of New Milford, CT and Diane Barboe of South Windsor, CT. She will also be missed by her grandchildren Angie Espisito and her husband Robert, Tony Palmieri and his wife Denise, Stacey Rojas, Robin Pagan and her husband Michael, Shannon Williams and her husband Leon as well as her eleven great grandchildren and one great great grandchild.
The family would like to thank her wonderful caregivers over the years including her close companion Amanda McMcarvell.
