Mrs. Barbara Ann Lamanno, 76, loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother passed away early Saturday morning, Aug. 5 at her home in Sheffield, Mass.
Born in Noroton on June 4, 1941, she was the daughter of Frank and Jeannette Lineburgh Selas. She was a graduate of Darien High School, where she was a member of the a cappella glee club, the choir, was a cheerleader as well as a baton twirler.
Barbara loved all things fashion. Regardless of the event she was always glamorous. She topped off every outfit with a fancy hat.
She loved celebrating the holidays; holidays incorporated two of her favorite things — decorating but more importantly spending time with family and friends. One of the activities she enjoyed doing was coloring with her grandchildren.
