Barbara Lois Macisco, 75, of Milford, beloved wife of the late Michael Macisco, Jr., passed away peacefully on September 23, 2020. Born on December 3, 1944 in Milford, she was the daughter of the late Homer and Bertha Warren.
Barbara attended Milford High School and was a member of the first graduating class of Jonathan Law High School in 1962. Barbara enjoyed many happy retirement years with her husband Michael. Their social activities included bingo, bowling, trips to the casinos, dancing, traveling, cruises, fishing, cooking, gardening, relaxing at home and hosting many family gatherings. She was a big New York Yankees fan and rarely missed watching a game. Puzzles, board games, cards and Candy Crush were some of her favorite pastimes.
Barbara was a lifelong member of Mary Taylor Memorial Church, and a member of the Loyal Order of the Moose, Milford Elks, and Ladies’ Auxiliary at VFW Post #7788. She enjoyed volunteering and being a part of these organizations and their activities. She especially looked forward to participating in events that served Veterans. She was patriotic, loved her country and often wore her red, white and blue.
She will be remembered for her humor and sweetness. She will also be remembered for her love of Christmas and decorating for the holidays. She was proud of her three daughters, her grandchildren and greatgrandchildren, and enjoyed it most when the family was gathered together.
