Obituary

Barbara Elaine (Slattery) Morse Guindon, 94, passed away July 31, 2022 at East Longmeadow Skilled Nursing Center. Born in Westminster, VT on May 12, 1928 to the late James and Theresa (Gray) Slattery, she grew up in Bellows Falls, VT. She was a 1946 graduate of Bellows Falls High School. Barbara worked five years for New England Telephone & Telegraph in Bellows Falls and for over 20 years as a meat wrapper at ShopRite in Springfield, MA.

She was very dedicated to her family and loyal to friends, proud of her Irish heritage and loved Irish music. An avid Patriots and Red Sox fan, she dabbled in sports herself and especially loved skiing behind her childhood home. She was a member of the Atlanta (Georgia) Northlake Elks Auxiliary.

She leaves her children, Theresa (Morse) Nallett of Three Rivers, MA, son-in-law Francis Nallett, of West Springfield, MA, Michael J. Morse and Daniel J. Morse both of Springfield, MA; her grandchildren and their spouses: James Nallett and Carrie Saldo, Danielle and Michael McKinstry, and Ellien and Steph Byers; 11 great-grandchildren: Jake, Charles, William, Lillian, Michael, Logan, Marigold, Clementine, Giddeon, Emile, and Ezra; three great-great grandchildren: Jeremy, Vincent and Rohan; along with many other family members and friends.

She was predeceased by her parents; her son, Ralph Morse, Jr. and wife Deborah Laramee; her first husband Ralph Morse, Sr; her second husband, Arthur Guindon; and her siblings, James, John and Daniel Slattery, Corrine Gillen and Mary Lou Reed. She loved them all a bushel and a peck.
