Barbara L. Hinckley-Alcorn, of Upton, formerly of Waltham, died Monday, August 23, 2021 at Newton-Wellesley Hospital. She was 67. Barbara was born in Waltham on September 24, 1953, the daughter of the late Walter and Louise (Crowley) Hinckley.

The pair made Waltham their home until a move last fall brought them to Upton. Barbara was a wonderful, warm, and loving wife, mother, and grandmother. She loved baking, painting, and made many happy memories with her family at Long Beach in Nahant. She maintained a wide circle of friends with whom she kept in almost daily contact discussing the affairs of the day, of family and of the neighborhood. Barbara leaves her husband of forty-five years, Harry Alcorn; her children, Andrew H. Alcorn (Sarah) of Upton and Melissa L. "Missy" Corcoran (Shane), of Lynn; her granddaughter, Mia 'Squishy' Alcorn; her brothers, Charles Hinckley of Mashpee, Robert Hinckley of Maine, Paul Hinckley of Reading and Walter Hinckley of Waltham; her brother-in-law, Greg Alcorn of Winchester and several nieces, nephews and cherished friends.
