Barbara Ann Edwards, 89, of Newtown, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on April 29. For 64 years she was the beloved wife of Rudy Edwards.

She was born in Bridgeport on October 5, 1934, the daughter of Margaret Gautiero and Anthony Gautiero. She graduated from hairdressing school and went to work as a hairdresser and manicurist in Newtown for several years.

Barbara was very crafty and made many home decorations for herself and her family. She also loved to bake and always had wonderful desserts, especially her Christmas cookies. She loved spending time with her family and looked forward to the many family camping trips over the years and many trips with her husband, Rudy.

In addition to her husband, Barbara is survived by her brother, Richard Gautiero of Inverness Fla.; her daughters, Kimberly Collins (Wayne) of North Stonington and Cindy Leili of New Milford; sons Mark Edwards (Terra) of Danbury and Gary Edwards (Debbie) from Watertown; her grandchildren, Derrick (Kam), Bradley, Kiera and Cole; her great-grandchildren, Natalie and Raylan; a niece and three nephews.

She was predeceased by her sister Phyllis Babasick.

She will be very missed by all!
