Obituary of Barbara Ann DeMarco

Barbara Ann DeMarco, 67, of Long Valley, NJ passed away on Sunday, December 8, 2019. Barbara was born on May 11, 1952 in Clifton, NJ and grew up in Wayne, NJ. She met her husband, Michael, at Josephthal when she was 19 years old and moved to West Hemstead, NY after getting married. In 1985 they moved to Long Valley, NJ where they raised their family. Although Barbara had jobs in the NY Stock Exchange Firm and started Kid's Club at Dickerson School in Chester, she took most pride in being a mother and caring for her family's home. She enjoyed cleaning and decorating the house and rearranging the layout of the furniture. Barbara was a big time NY Yankee and Derek Jeter fan, she was such a big fan that she had never missed watching a game in the past 20 years. The tv was permanently fixed on the Yes channel. She enjoyed cooking. Barbara would help anyone who needed her. She always had an open door at her home and friends were always welcome. Barbara also loved Christmas so much that she kept a tree up all year. Most of all, Barbara loved her family and would drop anything for them. She was a constant supporter of her son, Michael, and they shared a love for music, especially the Beatles. Ashley and she were best friends, they went to concerts together, NY Yankees games, and even took a memorable trip to Hawaii. Barbara and her husband, Michael, had a relationship that lasted over 48 years. Barbara's true pride and joy were her grandchildren, who she would do everything with. She will be remembered most by her family as wonderfully naïve and by her contagious laugh. Barbara is survived by her husband of 41 years, Michael P. DeMarco, her children, Michael J. DeMaro II and Ashley Lauren Moore and her husband Daniel, her grandchildren, Mason Christopher and Hailey Jessica, and her brother, Johnny Grieves and nephew, Jason Grieves. She was predeceased by her parents, John and Margaret Grieves and her nephew, Chris Grieves. A Celebration of Barbara's Life will include a memorial visitation on Friday, December 13, 2019 from 4pm to 8pm at the William J. Leber Funeral Home, 15 Furnace Road (corner of Rt. 206), Chester, NJ (908) 879-3090. A 10:30am funeral mass will be held on Saturday, December 14 at St. Luke Church in Long Valley, NJ. Final interment will be held privately by the family. Barbara's family requests anyone joining for the service to bring a short story about Barbara to be shared after the service. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Hermits of Carmel, 80 Pleasant Hill Road, Chester, NJ 07930, in Barbara DeMarco's name.
