Catherine A. (Tusi) Barbic, "Ms. Kitty", 87 of Wilmington, DE passed away peacefully at her home on Friday, November 30, 2012 with her two loving sons by her side.

Kitty was predeceased by her husband, William J. Barbic. She is survived by her sons, Mario Rocco Barbic and Raymond Barbic and his wife, Donna; her grandsons, Austin and Grant; and several nieces and nephews.

Kitty was a loving and supportive mother who never put herself first, and was always caring for others. She loved spending time with her best friend, Shirley and could often be found at Cosmos or Dunkin' Donuts along with her many other friends. She enjoyed Saturdays at Precision Hair, the salon owned by her niece, Sandy (Tusi) Mercante and her husband, Nick. The staff affectionately called her "Aunt Kitty" and will miss her helping around the shop. Kitty was a dedicated volunteer at Parkview Nursing Home and other nursing facilities in the area. She was also an active, devoted member of St. Elizabeth's Church, a member of the Parish Sodality and a 22 year member of the school cafeteria staff.

Family and friends are invited to visit at the Doherty Funeral Home, 3200 Limestone Road, Pike Creek on Thursday, December 6 from 5:30 - 8:00PM.
