Barbara Anne Worcester

March 28, 1932 - January 14, 2024

Barbara Anne Worcester, age 91, daughter of Arthur and Dorothy Beaumont, widow to William Worcester, passed away peacefully in Hendersonville, NC on January 12th, 2024.

Born in Boston, Massachusetts, Barbara and her younger sister Carole grew up in Hough’s Neck in Quincy, Massachusetts. She was a proud member of the Rainbow Girls and loved to sing and dance. She married her high school sweetheart Bill and within a week of getting married, they moved across the country to California where they spent 2 years until Bill was honorably discharged from the Navy. They then moved back to the east coast, welcoming their daughter Deborah into the world.

Barbara was a vibrant soul who found joy in life’s simple pleasures. When she wasn’t working as a medical coder for the VA Hospital, she channeled her passion for food and cooking; often delighting her loved ones with her delicious home-cooked meals and family recipes. Her adventurous spirit led her to travel the world (her favorite place being Spain), where she immersed herself in different cuisines and forged lifelong memories.

Family and friends were all touched by her warmth, generosity, and unwavering love. Barb’s legacy of laughter, love, and a zest for life will continue to inspire all who were fortunate enough to know her.

Barbara is survived by her daughter Deborah D. Worcester, grandson Bradley A. Kucsmas, granddaughter Ashley A. Davis (husband Henry J.), great-granddaughter Mackenzie J. Davis, nephews David (wife Bonnie) and Paul Sartori (wife Diana), niece Marsha Geronaitis (husband Jim), and first cousins Richard Beaumont (wife Ann), Joyce Rudolph, Steven Jaeger (wife Lisa), and Nancy Luby.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to The American Diabetes Association in Barbara’s honor.

A celebration of Barbara’s life will be held from 11:00 AM till 1:00 PM on February 10, 2024, at Church Street Funeral & Cremation in the hospitality room.

    Barb was such a wonderful friend to my parents, Ray and Dorothy. She was a blessing in their lives! We got to know Barb over many years of visiting my folks and meeting the neighbors on Riverview Ct. Barb always stopped by to chat when out walking Gigi. She was warm, generous, and adventurous.

    Dick & Ann Beaumont says:
    We grew up together in the Quincy, Massachusetts area of Houghs Neck, attended the Houghs Neck Congregational Church and shared many family weekends together at 226 or 246 Rock Island Road. In our adult married lives our paths crossed multiple times. Ann and I have truly wonderful memories of Barbara and Bill that have enriched and sustained the good things in this terrestrial life. May God welcome her to a better place.

    Barb, I will always appreciate your warmth and gracious hospitality to my family. I will always chuckle over our private joke together about cookie crumbs. So glad you are back together with your beloved Bill! Rest in Peace
