Barbara Remor, Barrington


Barbara (Delsesto) Remor died Wednesday, April 3, 2013, at Miriam Hospital. She was the wife of the late Bruce Remor of Ashaway.

Born in Providence, the daughter of the late Eraclio and Mary (Musso) Delsesto, she was a lifelong area resident. Mrs. Remor was a graduate of Barrington High School and was a Registered Nurse at RI Hospital. She became head nurse of the cystic fibrosis clinic and was part of the founding team of the child development center. Later in life, she worked at St. Elizabeth’s Nursing Home until her retirement.

She was a member of Alpha Z Delta Nursing Sorority and a communicant of St. Luke’s Church in Barrington. Mrs. Remor enjoyed antiques and her pets. Most of all, she loved spending time with her family, especially her grandson, Kyle, who was “her life.” She will be remembered by her family as a kind person who took care of everyone and in turn, was loved by all who knew her.

Surviving are a daughter, Connie Ganley, and her husband, Marc of Barrington/Swansea, sisters Anne Tryon of Indianapolis and Rosemary Graham and her husband, Peter, of Barrington; one grandson, Kyle Ganley, and many nieces and nephews.

Arrangements are with Smith Funeral and Memorial Services, 8 Schoolhouse Road, Warren. Memorial Mass is Friday, April 12, at 10 a.m. at St. Luke’s Church in Barrington, followed by a collation in the church hall. In lieu of flowers, donations in her name may be made to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Hasbro Children’s Hosp. 593 Eddy St. Providence, RI 02903.
