Barbara (Martowski) Figoni, 80, loving wife, mother, and grandmother passed away at home, July 13, 2021, surrounded by her loving family.
Born and raised in Ludlow, she was the daughter of the late Casimir and Mary (Tokarz) Martowski. She was a graduate of Ludlow High School. Barbara married William Figoni, on August 5, 1961. Together they raised their three children Bill, Theresa, and Barbara.
Barbara was a devoted communicant of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church where she was a member of the Woman’s Guild. She strongly believed in the power of prayer and in a spiritual life.
For Barbara, the home is the most important place for family and friends to gather to share their stories and express their love. Barbara was an avid reader and loved to garden, cook, and quilt. She attended the Senior Education Program at Assumption University with her husband for many years where they shared a love of learning. Barbara will be remembered for her intelligence, sharp memory, common sense, compassion, and as a faithful friend.

Provo and partner Paul Kellner; grandchildren, Thomas Figoni, Puck Glass (Anna), and Michael Provo; sisters, Jeanne Florek and husband Robert, Alice Walker and husband Charles, Jr.; sisters-in-law, Donna Kennedy and Ann Cauley and husband Raymond; as well as nieces and nephews.
