Obituary for Barbara Ann Palmatier (Nauman)

Barbara Ann (Nauman) Palmatier, 92, of West Hartford, beloved wife of the late Richard V. Palmatier, passed away peacefully on Sunday, October 7, 2018. Born in Hartford, Barbara was the daughter of the late Henry and Maude (Rand) Nauman. She was a resident of Hartford for many years, prior to moving to the Elmwood section of West Hartford.

She will be missed by her remaining family members, nieces, cousins, on her and her husband's side, also a group of devoted old and new friends. Besides her husband, she was predeceased by her son, Steven Palmatier, her best friend, Marty Rafala, and her very special feline companion Amber.

Barbara was a strong woman, who faced life and its good times and adversities with strength, grace and a sense of humor. Those that knew her, will miss that feisty attitude and beautiful smile.

She will be especially missed by Jean Beauchamp, her loving friend and caregiver over many years and members of Jean's family who considered Barbara their family.

A very heartfelt thank you to the whole care team at the Hughes Rehab and Convalescent Facility who provided exceptional care and concern for Barbara over the last few years.
