D’AMICO, BARBARA A., 56, beloved mother, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, and role model, passed away on Tuesday, March 3, 2020.
A brilliant and selfless mother, Barbara is survived by the loves of her life, daughter Nicole and son Tony; her loving parents, Dolores and Carmine; her sisters, Sharon and Linda; her brother-in-law Peter; her nephews Stephen, Michael, and Matthew; her son-in-law Angelo; and her numerous beloved friends.
Barbara was born in Evanston, Illinois, attended grade school in Wilmette, Illinois, and began high school at New Trier East in Winnetka, Illinois. She graduated locally from Saint Andrew’s School where she excelled in both academics and sports. She received a bachelor’s degree in Engineering from Lafayette College in 1985, and obtained her master’s degree in Computer Information Systems from Florida Atlantic University in 1986. Barbara worked at CDA InterCorp for over two decades, during which time she was nothing short of a prodigious polymath. She was a consummate colleague and committed herself to a wide-ranging array of professional responsibilities, from human resources, contract negotiation and support, tax compliance, and accounting, to creating corporate-wide computer and manual systems from scratch.
Although she will be remembered for her intellect, creativity, and connecting with people from all walks of life with an unparalleled joie de vivre, what brought Barbara the most joy was being a Mom to her two children, Nicole and Tony. Her children, and her family, were her everything; and she is ours. Barbara was to all who had the pleasure (and good luck) of meeting her, an electric jolt of life with an equally electric smile and a quick-witted sense of humor. She was the promise of sunshine on even the cloudiest of days and the light at the end of the tunnel; the same light that would guide her children and all she loved. Her spirit and her memory will be as eternal as the love she shared with her family and friends.
A dedicated mother, devoted daughter, loving sister, and thoughtful friend, Barbara will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her. A service will be held Friday, March 6, 2020 at 2:30 p.m. at the main chapel of the Boca Raton Mausoleum, 451 SW 4th Ave, Boca Raton, FL 33432.
