Barbara A. Sanchioni

1941 - 2021


Barbara A. Sanchioni, 79, of Westborough formerly a long-time resident of Southborough passed away on Wednesday, March 10, 2021.  She was a loving mother, grandmother and sister.

Born in Framingham, she was the daughter of the late Fred and Alice (Ramstrom) Sanchioni, and a proud member of the 1959 graduating class of the former Peter's High School in Southborough.  She was the financial Coordinator for the Northborough Southborough School District for 29 years, retiring in 2007.  Barbara was an active member of her community serving on the Southborough Youth Commission, Village Society and the Southborough Housing Authority, and later the Board of Trustees for Weatherstone Condominiums in Worcester. She was a former member of St Stephen's Episcopal Church of Westborough and St. Andrew's Episcopal Church of Grafton. 

Barbara was an avid reader, a talented painter and loved to travel.  Her home in Southborough was the gathering place for holiday and family occasions for many years, as her greatest joy was spending time with her family, especially her beloved grandchildren.

I had the opportunity of working with Barbara during many years at Neary School.  She was a lovely person to have been associated with and such a professional at her job.  Sorry for this loss to the family.

My mom worked with Barbara at the business office at Algonquin. When I was a student there I would swing by at lunch Nd after school. Barbara always had a smile and a laugh. I remember her fondly. I also remember how much she talked about her children, she really loved them.

Sorry to hear of Barbara's Passing.  She and my sister Carol are clearly laughing together in heaven now.    I will always remember Carol & Barbara on the electric scooters at Disney.

When I left employment at Algonquin, I had to request a Cobra insurance for my son who was temping. Barbara was extremely gracious and adjusted my departure date to enable the insurance. I was extremely grateful and will always recall Barbara as a wonderful person.
Sincere condolences, Marcy Kudirka
