Barbara R.'s Story
Barbara R. (Albertson) Nicolosi, 90, passed away peacefully on June 5th at the Nevins Rehabilitation and Nursing Home in Methuen. She was the beloved wife of the late Michael S. Nicolosi with whom she shared 65 years of marriage.
Born in Gloucester, in 1927, she was the daughter of Oliver Albertson and Alberta (Thibeault) Albertson. She attended Gloucester schools. After residing in Gloucester, she moved to Andover in 1961 and later moved to North Andover. A devoted wife, mother and grandmother, Barbara lived for her family and most of all enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren.

She leaves her sons and their wives, Dann and Georgette of North Andover and Michael Jr. and Marie of East Hampstead; grandchildren, Guy Nicolosi Jr., of Hampton, N.H., James (Jay) Nicolosi of North Andover, Kenneth Pickard of New York City, Dann Nicolosi, Jr. and Domenic Nicolosi of North Andover and Bianca Nicolosi of Portsmouth, N.H.
