She worked as personal assistant to Senator Brooke's wife for several years. Later, Barbara started as an examiner for the Massachusetts Insurance Division. After dedicated, hard work, she became the Director of Consumer Affairs of the Insurance Division for the state of Massachusetts. Barbara was fortunate enough to be able to travel the world. She visited some of the most amazing destinations. She was the best Grandmother that there was. Her love for her children and grandchildren was endless. She enjoyed spending weekends with her two granddaughters, shopping or getting their nails done. It was very important to her that they got the best of the best; whether it was their education or a pair of new shoes. "Memom" will be greatly missed.
