Barbara V. Richardson
January 31, 1932 - March 7, 2020
Barbara was a direct descendant of French Huguenots. Her ancestors fled to America in 1641, first settling in Massachusetts and later generations emigrating to Navarino, NY. Barbara was born on January 31, 1932, in Syracuse. She was a graduate of North High School. Barbara married Dr. Robert L. Richardson at St. John's Lutheran Church in Syracuse on July 13, 1957. They settled into the Pitcher Hill area of North Syracuse where they lived for 56 years and raised six sons. Bob and Barbara celebrated their 62nd wedding anniversary last summer.
Barbara was a homemaker. She loved animals, gardening in the backyard, enjoying her morning cup of coffee with friends at Wegmans on Taft Road, and spending time with her family.
Barbara is predeceased by her parents, Harry and Edna Vinton, by her brother, Harry S. Vinton Jr. and by her son, Neil Richardson. She is survived by her husband, of 62 years, Robert; by her sons, Eric (Stephany) Richardson, Steven (Colleen) Richardson, Kurt (Sarah) Richardson, all of Liverpool, Paul (Margaret) Richardson of Camillus and Scott (Melissa) Richardson of Syracuse; by seven grandchildren; two great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
