Barbara J. Dellea, 87

November 26, 2018

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Barbara Jean Dellea, 87, of Elberson Avenue in Pittsfield, passed away peacefully early Monday morning, November 26, 2018, at Mount Greylock Extended Care Facility.

Born November 7, 1931, in Egremont, Mass., she was the daughter of William E. Page and Amy Kisselbrock Page. She attended local schools and graduated from the former Searles High School in Great Barrington, class of 1949. Mrs. Dellea worked as a nurses aide at Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield for many years until her retirement in 1994.

Barbara enjoyed the simple things in life like feeding and watching birds, going for a walk and dining out. Her greatest joy came from spending time with her family and activities such as their summer vacations in Hampton Beach. Her grand-dogs held a special place in her heart.  

She was a member of the South Congregational Church in Pittsfield.

Barbara is survived by her daughters, Denise Murphy and Diane Chamberlain; her sister Deborah Frances and husband King; her grandchildren Jennifer Murphy, Michael Murphy and Steven Chamberlain; her great-grandson, Mason Chamberlain; several cousins; her cherished friend Marjorie Pulver and her husband Ray; as well as the beloved family dogs, Shadow, Beau and Baxter.

She was predeceased by her mother, Amy K. Page; father William Page and his wife Bette Page; her sister Sandra Hammer; and her son-in-law Dennis Murphy.

Funeral notice: A graveside service will be held in the spring when the daffodils bloom. Donations in memory of Barbara may be made to the South Congregational Church through Finnerty & Stevens Funeral Home, 426 Main Street, Great Barrington, MA 01230, who is caring for the arrangements.

The family of Barbara J. Dellea will be forever grateful to the staff at Mt. Greylock Extended Care Facility for the compassionate care they provided. Your love and support will never be forgotten.
