February 5, 1951April 10, 2019

April 10, 2019, Barbara Lee Fortunato (ne Fitzpatrick) passed on joining her beloved husband of 40+ years Sal B. Fortunato and her father Raymond F. Fitzpatrick, both of whom predeceased. Barbara is survived by her mother Margaret Fitzpatrick and her two beloved children, Sal brought to her: Ann Marie (& John) Onorato and Steven (& Linda) Fortunato. And grandchildren: Antonette, Frankie and Vincent Onorato and Nicholas, Christopher and Dani Fortunato. Barbara is survived by six siblings: Susan Penney, Stephen & Rosanne Fitzpatrick, John T. Fitzpatrick, Sr., JoAnn Fitzpatrick & John Hall, Raymond Fitzpatrick, James & Katherine Fitzpatrick, and thirteen nieces and nephews. Beloved extended family includes: Toni Marie Onorato, Doreen, Deena & Nichole Galante, and the entire Fortunato family including all of Sal’s siblings, their children and so many more people who knew and loved her. Barbara was an original hippy, who never lost her love child vibe. She was kind, patient and the most easy going and accepting person you could hope to meet. Barb proudly recalled her Woodstock experience as she was a product of “the movement”. Sal kept her anchored in the real world and they were inseparable for over 47 years until his passing in 2017. Originally a Brooklyn Girl, where she worked at Monarch Wine and met Sal. Barb and Sal moved to Scottsdale, Arizona in the 80’s and loved it like natives. Barb worked at the Scottsdale Subaru in the 80’s as a title clerk. While we mourn the loss of someone so loved, we take comfort knowing she is with her beloved husband and father.
