Barbara L. (Warshaw) Klein

Barbara (Warshaw) Klein of Holliston formerly of Yorktown Heights, NY and Detroit, MI on Monday, September 9, 2019. Devoted mother of Elysa Seymour and her husband Thomas Seymour, and Allison Fisher and her husband Aaron Fisher. Adored grandmother of Robert, Bradford, Tessa, Jack, and Gabrielle. Dear sister of Diana Spier and Harvey Warshaw, sister-in-law of Jeanne Simcoe.

Memorial observance will be held on Wednesday, September 11 following interment at the Seymour residence until 4:00 and then resume Thursday, September 12 from 4:00-7:00.

Barbara worked as a teacher and an executive assistant throughout her career. In her retirement, she enjoyed rediscovering her love of art and painting, doting on her grandchildren, and staying active through lectures, book clubs, and working part-time. She was invested in making the world a better place, always seeking knowledge and connecting with others. She touched the lives of everyone she met and was considered “Grammy” to countless family and friends. She will be missed every moment of every day.

In lieu of flowers, remembrances can be made to the American Lung Association or the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance.
