Barbara L. (Goodwin) (Dwyer) Bardwell, 76, of Manchester, died September 15, 2021 at her home after a courageous battle with Lou Gehrig's Disease.
She was born in Jersey City, NJ on June 21, 1945 to Charles and Elsie (Frawley) Goodwin. She attended Manchester schools and lived in Manchester for most of her life.
Barbara loved spending time with her family. Her eyes would light up when her grandchildren and great grandchildren entered the room. She enjoyed crafts and decorating for all seasons, often making her own curtains for the seasons. She also loved camping. She had been a communicant of Blessed Sacrament Church and a member of Sylvania Motorcycle Club.
She was predeceased by her husband, George H. Bardwell in 2006
