Barbara Mary Halloran, 86, died peacefully on the morning of March 24, 2023 in Peterborough NH, surrounded by the love of her family.
Born in Princeton, NJ on August 15, 1936 to George and Mary (née Flynn) Tarrant, Barbara married her husband, John, in 1960 and began a family. She raised her four children with John in Havertown, PA where the couple lived for 40 years before their move to Kennett Square, PA.
Barbara attended Misericordia College (BA 1959) and Villanova University (MA 1977) and was an avid Villanova Basketball fan and season ticket holder, as well as a Phillies and Eagles devotee.
In retirement she loved to travel and delighted in doting on her grandsons and supporting their activities. She was deeply proud of her Irish heritage and devoted to her Catholic faith (active parishioner of Sacred Heart Church in Manoa and St Patrick in Kennett, PA).
Barbara was a beloved wife of 59 years before John’s death in 2020; loving mother of John “Mike” Halloran (NH), Patti Seymour (Gregory)(NH), and Eileen Stasiunas (Christopher) (Avondale PA); adoring grandmother of Tom Stasiunas (Rebecca) (Oxford PA), Matt Stasiunas (Kaitlin) (Henrico VA); and great grandmother of Colson Stasiunas. She is pre-deceased by her son, Timothy, and husband, John.
She touched the lives of so many and earned a place in the hearts of everyone who met her.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St Patrick Church in Kennett Square, PA on Friday, 31 March at 11 AM.
In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made in Barbara’s memory to American Brain Foundation (americanbrainfoundation.org)
