Barbara Lynch, age 56, longtime resident of Boulder, passed away on Monday, September 23, in Laramie, Wyoming and she was a fun, funny, loving, and giving person whose wit and intelligence brightened any time spent with her. She was born in Boston and was an avid Red Sox fan and moved to Boulder in the mid-'70's. She was preceded in death by her mother in the mid-1990's. Survivors include her father William Lynch, an aunt and several first cousins, and her "adopted" family with whom she lived for a time as a young child. The memorial service is this Friday, October 4, 2013, at 2:00 p.m. at Unity Church in Boulder, 2855 Folsom Street.
