O'Brien, Barbara - Walnut Creek  
Barbara Jane (Lemon) O'Brien Barbara passed away peacefully on February 25th, 2015 at the age of 91. She was a loving mother to Steve, Mike, Connor, Terry and Katie O'Brien, and the loving grandmother of Sean, Jack and Conor O'Brien, Casey and Dan O'Brien, Caitlin O'Brien, and Erin, Kelli and Megan Wiley. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews from both the McQuaid and O'Donnell clans. A proudly Irish native San Franciscan and the last of the Lemon sisters, Barbara attended Star of the Sea high school and UC Berkeley before eventually marrying and raising her family in Marin County. Barbara was, as described by a long time family friend, "the glue that held everything together". She was very committed to her Catholic faith , volunteered her time regularly at the local Catholic churches and schools, and sang in the church choir. Singing would become one of Barbara's great passions, which she enjoyed her entire life. Later, as her children grew older, Barbara traveled annually as a proud parent in support of the St. Mary's College rugby team, another hobby she never tired of. Barbara's later years were spent at the Nazareth House, where she would regularly hold court with both staff and residents to sing at any opportunity. She had the uncanny ability to recall both music and lyrics to obscure songs from her youth, her favorite show tunes, and of course, her Irish ditties. It has been reported that Barbara would occasionally change the lyrics to some songs in a manner which would make the Sisters of Nazareth blush, but the family is claiming no knowledge as to the accuracy of that statement. The O'Brien family would like to thank the entire staff at the Nazareth House for their support . Barbara was a strong willed and often times tough "cookie", but she had a big heart. We are glad to know that she now rests in peace. A memorial service celebrating Barbara's life will be held Sat, February 28th at 11 AM at the Nazareth House, 245 Nova Albion Way, San Rafael followed by a reception in the auditorium. In lieu of flowers, the family would ask that a contribution be sent in Barbara's name to the Nazareth House.

She enjoyed travel, especially to her European ancestral roots of Ireland and England, and was an avid collector of porcelain and Prattware. After the death of her husband in 1991, Jane moved to the Bay Area to be closer to her two children.
