Barbara Marie Molinari

August 7, 1941 ~ November 14, 2019 (age 78)


Barbara Marie Molinari, age 78, passed away peacefully November 14, 2019.  She was born August 7, 1941 in New York City to Marie and Anthony Tesar.  She married Bernie Molinari in 1963, but lost him at a young age in 1986 when she was 44 years old. 

Barbara, primarily a homemaker, dedicated her life to raising her children, supporting their interests and activities, and enabling them to get the best education possible.  Though she stayed close to home most of the time, she still managed to travel to several parts of the world.  She loved to visit her family in California and to take her own family to Hawaii multiple times.  She visited Europe twice, traced her father’s original home in Czech Republic, and visited her son in Russia.


She was always available for her children throughout their lives and she grew bright and joyous whenever she was with her three grandsons.


Barbara is survived by her daughter and husband, Dana and George, and by her son and wife, David and Maribeth.  Her beloved grandchildren are Dodge, Carson, and Joseph.
