Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Of The Villages, FL, formerly of Saugus, MA, passed away unexpectedly, on November 11, 2022 at the age of 89. She was born on January 8, 1933 in Boston, MA to the late Abraham and Frances (Baron) Pinciss.  She is now reunited with her beloved husband, of 62 years, the late Dr. Theodore P. Golan, who predeceased her in 2016.

   Barbara lived all of her life in Saugus, where she raised her family and was an active member of Congregation Ahavas Sholom.  In 2017, she sold her home and moved to a condo in Reading, MA with the intent to become a snowbird, spending her winters in The Villages. In 2019, she decided to make a permanent move to Florida, where she lived with her daughter Laurie, son in-law Kevin and her Shih-Poo, Lacie.

   Barbara thoroughly enjoyed music, dancing, cruising and shopping and was always ready for a fun time going out and about.  She was a loving and caring surrogate Mom to many neighbors and her daughter’s friends, the children of her heart.

   Barbara is survived by her two daughters, Karen Landy and Laurie Golan (Kevin Murphy) her grandson, Adam Landy, and her siblings, Gerald Pinciss, Beverly Sanders and Nancy Freireich.

A Celebration of Life will be held on January 8, 2023 in The Villages, FL.

   Barbara will be laid to rest, beside her husband Ted, at Sharon Memorial Park in Sharon, Massachusetts.  In appreciation of the amazing care received by her late husband, the family requests that memorial donations be made to Care Dimensions, 75 Sylvan St., Suite B-102, Danvers, MA  01923-an organization that was dear to Barbara’s heart.
