Barbara M. Stark Obituary
Today, I lost my best friend, the love of my life, my wife Barbara. She passed away on February 4, 2017 after a short illness, surrounded by friends and family.

Barbara was born in Bennington, VT on November 11, 1952 to Harold and Alice Bailey. She attended Bennington schools and was a graduate of Mt. Anthony High School, class of 1970.

In 1970, she married her loving husband Dirk Stark, at St Francis de Sales Church in Bennington, VT. She worked at the Bennington Banner and the Bennington area nursing homes.

In 1981, Barbara and her husband opened the Bennington Coffee Shop at the 4 Corners on Main Street. In 1992, they moved to Venice, Florida, where she worked in the area nursing homes and also did private duty.

She is survived by her devoted husband Dirk, her mother, Alice Bailey, a sister, Sharon Morin, a brother, John Bailey, a special niece, Shari Morin Pennington and four grandsons, who she loved so very much as well as several other nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her dad, Harold Bailey and her beautiful daughter, Heidi Stark-Boulerice in 2005.
