Barbara Lois Nicolosi

April 16, 1946 - August 11, 2022


Barbara Lois Nicolosi passed away on August 11, 2022 at the age of 76 years in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Barbara was born on April 16, 1946 in Salem, Massachusetts and was raised in Peabody, MA by her late parents, Tony and Helen Gallo. She lived in the Northshore most of her life until moving to Scottsdale AZ.

Barbara is survived by her loving husband, Frank. She was the proud mother to three sons: Francesco, Jason & David, a daughter -- Ginene, a loyal dog -- Jamie, her daughters-in-law -- Alix & Janis, son-in-law -- Mark and 8 grandchildren Ashley, Lexie, Noah, Jared, Jonathan, Seth, Luke, & Lyla.

Barbara was a kind and loving mother, devoted wife, and caring friend to many. She cherished her time with family and always put her children above herself. When she wasn't a homemaker, she enjoyed reading, cooking, playing mahjong with family & going to bingo with friends. She was a food epicurean and an aficionado of vintage hand-held fans and geisha dolls. Barbara will be missed by all those who knew her, but never forgotten.

A funeral service is scheduled at 5:00 pm on Wednesday, August 24, 2022 at Hansen Desert Hills Mortuary and Cemetery on Bell Rd. and 64th St. in Scottsdale, AZ. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the American Cancer Society would be a thoughtful way to honor Barbara.
