Barbara relished a brisk walk — often with her “granddog” Packer. She loved nature, being outdoors, traveling and meeting new people. She enjoyed shopping and her daily workouts, but her utmost passion was time spent with her adoring family and doting over her cherished, precious grandchildren.
In addition to her loving husband, Barbara is survived by her daughter and closest confidant, Melissa J. Saraiva and her husband James of Salem, MA; her sons, Mark J. Riley, Jr. and his wife Nancy of Ft. Pierce, FL, and David K. Riley and his wife Kelly of Raleigh, NC; her grandchildren, Amanda Saraiva, Casey, Abigail, Sarah, Braedon and (newborn) Zachary Riley. Barbara also leaves her siblings, Margaret Roberts and her husband Norman of Salem, George Queenan and his wife Patty of Salem, Joanne Comerford and James Camire of Methuen, Kathleen McMath of Salem, John Queenan and his wife Joanne of Salisbury, Ann M. Richardson of Salem and Patrick Queenan and his wife Laura of North Andover. Predeceased by brothers Paul E. and Gary R. Queenan. Barbara also leaves many cherished nieces and nephews and countless friends.
