Subscription Update Obituary

Barbara M. (Hicks) DeMauro, 89, passed away peacefully in the loving care of her family and the dedicated staff at the Christopher House in Worcester on Saturday, September 24, 2022. Born in Worcester and raised in Millbury, Barbara was the daughter of the late Harry and Florence (Emmott) Hicks and lived 40 years in Shrewsbury before returning to Millbury. Her husband of 47 years, Peter DeMauro died in 2008.

Barbara is survived by her daughter, Lori J. Grenier and her husband, Steve of Worcester; two sons, Robert D. MacIntosh and his wife, Kathy of Millbury and Thomas R. MacIntosh of Brookfield; a sister, Carol Clements of Florida; four grandchildren, Amy Ferguson, Andrew and Corey MacIntosh, Melissa Hobbs; 5 great-grandchildren, Isabelle and Margot Ferguson, Alice and Cameron MacIntosh, and Lily Hobbs; and several nephews and nieces. Besides her husband Peter, Barbara is predeceased by three brothers, Allen, Larry and Harry Hicks and two sisters, Florence Kulbokas and Eleanor Conway.

She was a graduate of Fanning Girls Trade High School, class of 1950. Barbara was an exceptional mom who loved nothing more than spending time with her family. The holidays were particularly important to Barbara because the holidays brought her entire family together. One of the highlights of her life was traveling to England to explore her family heritage. She enjoyed visiting Wells Beach in Maine and Cape Cod as well as baking, bingo and yard sales.

Barbara’s life will be honored and remembered at a private graveside service on Friday, September 30th at Worcester County Memorial Park in Paxton. Memorial contributions may be made in Barbara’s name to the American Parkinson Disease Association, 135 Parkinson Ave., Staten Island, NY 10305.
