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; and her numerous beloved friends.
Barbara was born in Evanston, Illinois and attended high school locally at St. Andrews School where she excelled in both academics and sports. Barbara graduated from Lafayette College with a bachelor’s degree in Engineering in 1985, and obtained her master’s degree in computer information systems from Florida Atlantic University in 1986. The consummate colleague and professional, Barbara worked at CDA Intercorp. for over two decades, during which time Barbara 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 to building computer and manual systems from scratch to accounting.
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. She was the promise of sunshine on even the cloudiest of days. She was an interminable source of consolation for those gripped with despair. She was the light at the end of the tunnel; the same light that would guide her children and all she loved. Her spirit is as eternal as the love she shared with her family and friends.
A dedicated mother, a thoughtful friend, and a trusted sister, Barbara will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her. A viewing 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.
