Northford, Connecticut

Loving Mother, Grandmother, Sister and Aunt


Barbara Ann De Maio McWeeney, 68 of Northford died peacefully at the Masonicare Health Center, Wallingford on Monday, March 26, 2018 with her loving family by her side. She was the beloved wife of forty seven years to James D. McWeeney. Barbara was born in New Haven on March 14, 1950, daughter of the late Salvatore and Eleanor Perrotti DeMaio, and had resided in Northford for the past twenty nine years. She was a school paraprofessional in both the North Branford and North Haven Public Schools for twelve years, retiring in 2012. Barbara was devoted to her family, especially her children and grandchildren, always putting others above herself. Her infectious smile, and warm welcoming personality made everyone feel comfortable and accepted. She loved life and always found humor in even the most difficult situations. She will be truly missed by many. Knowing she's at peace after her courageous battle with ALS will begin to help our healing process. We send a special thank you to Monica Torres and Jessica Mascola from Masonicare along with the entire hospice staff for their dedication and compassion for Barbara during what was a very difficult time in her life. In addition to her husband, Barbara is survived by two daughters, Kelly Ann (Jay) DeChello of Cheshire and Jennifer McWeeney of Northford, one sister, Sally Ann (Frank) Dwyer of Durham, one brother, Alfred (Betsy) DeMaio of Orange, and four grandchildren, Anthony and Jadyn DeChello, and Aidan and Nathan Cappetta.
