Born and raised in Am­herst, Barbara W. Calvin passed away peacefully on July 8, 2015 at her home in Oceanside, CA. with family members at her side. She was 90 years young.

She is survived by her two sisters, Roberta Wilkins of Amherst, NH, and Natalie Cass of Han­cock, NH; and 17 nieces and nephews from Cali­fornia to the Eastern Seaboard. She was pre­deceased by her brother, Roger Weston; and sister, Gladys Patten and her husbands, Wayne Calvin and Robert T. Miner.

She went west to Oceanside with her broth­er Roger to move her fian­ce Robert Miner to USMC Camp Pendleton in the 1950’s.

Barbara worked at Hughes Aircraft for 40 years in the Aerospace Industry where she made many friends who stayed close in their retirement years.

Barbara was an angel who always was willing to make a bed for any fam­ily member or friend that needed a helping hand.

Raised on a working dairy farm in the depres­sion and during WWII, Barbara was a valiant Patriot and volunteered to ride horseback during the war to alert New Eng­landers to turn off their lights so that the Germans couldn’t bomb the east coast after dark.

Barbara was remem­bered by her family and friends at a service in Cal­ifornia.
