Barbara E. Mereschuk, 98, of Northborough


Northborough/East Greenwich, R.I. – Barbara E. Mereschuk passed away peacefully in the early hours of Aug. 18, 2021, at the Lutheran Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center in Worcester. She was 98 years old.

Barbara leaves a great-niece, Karen Mowry and her spouse Frances O’Neill, and their child, Camille Mowry-O’Neill, and a great-nephew, Geoff Mowry and his children, Ella Mowry, Evan Mowry, Austin Mowry and Adam Mowry.

Born and raised in Avon, Conn., Barbara was a daughter to the late Sylvester and Barbara (Uzwack) Mereschuk. She resided in the East Greenwich, R.I. area for much of her life where she found solace in her flower gardens.

She was employed with Citizen’s Bank for most of her career. Nine years ago, Barbara relocated to Northborough to be nearer to her beloved family. She took pleasure in seeing the third-generation family members grow from children to graduating high school and starting lives of their own.

An avid fan of the Red Sox, Barbara hardly ever missed a game. She also enjoyed watching tennis matches on the television.

Following her wishes, Barbara will be laid to rest privately alongside her parents and siblings in the Evergreen Cemetery of Avon, Conn. There are no public services planned.

Please consider a memorial contribution in Barbara’s name to the charity of your choice.

Arrangements are under the care of Hays Funeral Home, 56 Main St., Northborough. To leave a condolence, please visit
