Barbara J. DiMaria (Jenkins) It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Barbara DiMaria on June 19, 2014 in Tucson, Arizona. She was born on February 9, 1929 in Massena, New York. Barbara, her husband Joe and their children moved to Tucson from Chicago in August 1959 where Barbara was the bookkeeper for their multiple service stations. She will be remembered as a person who loved traveling in their RV with friends, being around her family and especially her grandchildren, being a great cook, her wealth of knowledge and how she loved to laugh. Barbara was preceded in death by her parents, George and Alvina Jenkins; her brothers, George, John and Hugh Jenkins; her husband, Joseph DiMaria. She is survived by her brother, Robert Jenkins (Jane); her children, Michael DiMaria (Charlotte), Nancy DiMaria (Chris), Charles DiMaria (Ruth) and Mark DiMaria (Tina); grandchildren, Brandon DiMaria (Jean), Kimberly Labriola (Nick), Jennifer Young (Jeff), Ashley Smith, Jeramie DiMaria (Kendra), Aimee DiMaria and her great-grandchildren, Carson, Taylor, Connor, Joshua and many other family members.
