Barbara Damiani Obituary, Death – Barbara Damiani sadly and unexpectedly passed away on December 22,2022, at the age of 75. Dorothy and Fleetwood Warde gave birth to their daughter Barbara on January 17, 1947, in the Bronx, New York. After spending the majority of her childhood in that town, the family eventually relocated to Ridgefield, New Jersey.
Ridgefield Park provided her with her high school certificate in 1965. She married Thomas Damiani, a Fairview, New Jersey native, on November 17, 1968. Barbara and Tommy resided into his boyhood home for a short time following their marriage before migrating to New York City, New York. They raised their three children there: Lisa, Tracey, and Thomas Jason (TJ).
Barbara was a loving wife, a loyal mother, and a wonderful grandmother to her numerous grandchildren. Barbara was happiest when she was able to spend time with her family. This included having lunch at their place on most Sundays, barbecuing by the pool, and even spending valuable one-on-one time with “Moonah.”
Her children and grandkids were well aware that “Moonah” was always available to help them anytime they needed it.
This included helping to pack college dorms, accompanying a grandchild to a doctor’s visit, and even an unplanned pick-up from school, which was then followed by a “bite” at the diner when a grandchild “needed a break.”
Barbara was incredibly beautiful on the inside as much as on the outer.
She loved the holidays, and her door was always open to anybody and everyone. She was a devoted grandmother to her nine grandchildren, and she had a one-of-a-kind bond with each and every one of them. Dates such as foot massages followed by Sangria lunches, shopping excursions, manicure appointments at the nail salon, and one-on-one meals out at a good restaurant are examples of this.
When Barbara entered a room, the mood quickly changed to one of enthusiasm and optimism. Because of her kind and sympathetic attitude, everyone who had the good fortune to be in her presence found it relaxing and pleasant. She had an uncanny ability to make everyone feel important. She had a lovely personality, a hilarious sense of humor, and the capacity to bring levity to even the most difficult situations.
Her good spirit was contagious. Barbara and her husband Tommy, along with some of their closest friends, had a fantastic time on their Aruba trip. Barbara also treasured spending time with her loving sister-in-law Geraldine Toniolo, her husband Richard, and the couple’s three children, Lucille, John, and Marianne.
Because of their strong friendship, Geraldine and Barbara considered themselves sisters rather than in-laws. Barbara was not only a lovely daughter to her parents, but she was also a loving sister to her younger brother, Steven, who died. Barbara and Dotty, Barbara’s mother, were intimate companions who shared and did everything together.
