Barbara N. Wisowaty
February 2, 1949 – June 30, 2017
Barbara Newcomb Wisowaty, age 68, passed away at home on Friday, June 30, 2017, surrounded by family, following a battle with cancer.
Barbara was a lifelong resident of Delaware City, DE. She was a member of the graduating class of 1967 from Mount Aviat Academy in Childs, MD, and then attended Goldey-Beacom College in Wilmington. She married in 1968 and dedicated her life to her husband and four daughters. Barbara retired after 20 years working at Air Products.
A devout Catholic, she was a parishioner of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church in Bear. Barbara enjoyed cooking, crocheting, and spending time with family, especially her grandchildren. She was a private woman, generous beyond words, and was happiest any time her family was gathered together at her home.
Barbara was preceded in death by her mother, Regina (Curlett) Newcomb and father, William Wallace Newcomb; brother, Wallace Newcomb; and infant sons, Lawrence and Joseph Wisowaty. She is survived by her husband of 49 years, Walter R. Wisowaty; daughters, Karen Christian, Susan Lebowitz, Jennifer Wisowaty, and Christine Elliston; grandchildren, Sam, Morgan, and Alex; and brothers, Lawrence Newcomb and Michael Newcomb.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be offered at 10 am on Thursday morning, July 6, 2017, at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton R.C. Church, 345 Bear-Christiana Rd., Bear, DE. Interment will follow in St. Paul’s New Catholic Cemetery, Cox Neck Rd., New Castle, DE.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations in Barbara’s memory to the American Cancer Society, 92 Read’s Way, Suite 205, New Castle, DE 19720.
