Barbara Hines

Retiree of Mass. General Eye and Ear Computer Systems and J.P. Hood Sons, Revere Wellness Group Member and Longtime Garfield School Volunteer

Family and friends are
invited to attend Memorial Visiting Hours on Thursday, Aug. 22 from 4 to 8
p.m., in the Vertuccio Smith, Home for Funerals, 773 Broadway (Rte. 107)
Revere for Barbara J. (Tobin) Hines who passed on Monday, Aug. 12 after a brief
illness at Hyder Family Hospice House of Dover, N.H. Her funeral will be held
in the funeral home on Friday, Aug. 23, at 10 a.m. Interment will be private.

Born and raised in Boston’s
Charlestown section, she maintained that same zest for and love of life until
her passing. She was a graduate of Charlestown High School, Class of 1958. In
high school, her classmates voted her “best dressed,” and she was also
co-captain of the cheerleading squad.

She served in the U.S. Army
during peace time as a cryptographer at the Pentagon. This love of cryptoquotes
continued throughout her life. Love and interest in cooking developed
later,  resulting in her being a
phenomenal chef. Traveling with family and friends brought her great pleasure
and she enjoyed sharing the memories of those traveled places often.

She was a member of the
Revere Senior Wellness Group and cultivated many wonderful long-lasting
relationships. Volunteering at the local Revere Garfield School was another
passion which she continued for years.

Her career as a computer
systems operator at Boston’s Mass. General Eye Ear Infirmary and Hospital
spanned some 20 years. After her time at the Eye Ear, she spent her last
five working years as a computer systems operator with an old Boston institution,
The J.P. Hood Sons Milk Co. of Charlestown, retiring in 2009.

Barbara was the proud
daughter of the late Thomas Tobin and Rose (Carroll) Tobin; the cherished
mother of Linda Morelli, David Hines, Douglas Hines, Jeanne Musick and Joanne
Patterson; the devoted grandmother to Angela Brown, Anthony Mannetta, Maddison
and Aidan Hines, Sheena Tillery, Jeremy Musick, Bethany Musick and Luke and Amy
Patterson. She is also lovingly survived by three great-grandchildren, Bruin
Corbet, Jacy Frustaglia and Mia Mannetta and her great-great grandson, Rocco
Frustaglia. Many nieces and nephews also survive her.

She was the dear sister of
Christine Pescatore of Methuen and the late Frank D. Tobin and the late Thomas

A majority of Barbara’s life
was as a military family, spending all of her life living and traveling
throughout the country, however, we, here in Revere are honored and flattered
to have been assured that when referring to “home,” Revere did indeed top the
list. And all of us here at Vertuccio Smith, Home for Funerals thank you
Barbara for selecting and allowing us to arrange and direct your final trip.
God love and bless you.

In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be
made to the Garfield School P.T.O., 176 Garfield Ave., Revere, MA 02151 or
