She was a loving and caring mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. She loved to be around her family, making Sunday dinners and baking pizzelles with her mother and sister, Carol.  Barbara loved making and selling crafts at craft shows all over the Tri-State area. She was the best wreath and bow maker around!  A huge Phillies Fan, we loved to call her Mrs. Chase Utley. Barbara loved to watch her grandchildren play sports, especially soccer. She secretly traveled and checked out the opposing teams to see how good they were!  She enjoyed playing cards with her family, and her favorite game was Three Thirteen.



She is the beloved mother of Debra Baca (James), Michael Johnson, and twins, the late Barbara Cleary-Smith and the late George Cleary.  Treasured grandmother of Bobby, Anthony, Ashley, Mandy, Gina, and Allie.   Adored great-grandmother of Natalia, Milania,  Delaney, and Rosalie.  Daughter of the late Violet and late Rocco Gianvito and (step-father) the late Frank Morse.  Dear sister of Charles Gianvito (Tina), John Gianvito (the late Joan), and late Carol Garrity(Joe). She will be greatly missed by many nieces, nephews and extended family and friends.
