Obituary for Barbara Nicholson (Tourigny)

Barbara A. Nicholson, (nee’ Tourigny), 85, of Longmeadow MA, widow of Charles H. Nicholson, died April 18, 2020.
She was born August 6, 1934, in Springfield, MA, daughter of George and Ida (Duschesne) Tourigny, as the youngest of twelve siblings, only 7 of whom survived to adulthood. Barbara was the last surviving sibling, predeceased by her brothers Armand Tourigny, Roger Tourigny, Raymond Tourigny, Hector Tourigny, George Tourigny, and by her sister Irene (Tourigny) Daniels.

She is survived by her children, Gerald Scanlon, Mary Ellen Scanlon, Richard Scanlon and Maureen Wohlstrom, by her 7 grandchildren, and 4 great-grandchildren, as well as her sister-in-law, Norma Tourigny, and several nieces and nephews, and great-nieces and great-nephews, as well 4 step-children from her last marriage.

She was an energetic woman who loved life, and who raised her children as a single mother, working two jobs to provide the best she could. She was a strong, independent woman who took great pride in taking care of herself and her family. She very much enjoyed being outdoors doing something active, whether walking, riding her bike, kayaking, taking photographs, camping, or traveling, to name just some of her interests. She was a people-person, and loved to make people laugh.

The thing that brought her the greatest happiness was her faith. Barbara became one of Jehovah’s Witnesses nearly 50 years ago. She was never happier than when she had the chance to share her beliefs and faith with others. She looked forward to seeing God’s purpose finally fulfilled here on earth, and the time when she would be reunited with her own loved ones in the resurrection. She was dearly loved, and will be greatly missed.
