Barbara H. (Fisher) Kupelnick
Barbara passed peacefully at the age of 81 on March 22, 2021. She was born in Boston on November 2, 1939. The daughter of the late Isaac Fisher and Leah (Miller) Fisher.
She was a proud mom of her devoted son Steven and loving daughters: Pamela of Malden, Tracy and her husband William Muise and Ede of Malden. Father of her children, Jack Kupelnick. She is also survived by her beloved sister, Geraldine “Rose” Brenner of South Carolina. Sister of the late Leonard, Murray and Martin Fisher. Barbara had many cousins, nieces and nephews. She was also the best Nana to her several furry grandbabies.
Barbara made friends wherever she went. She had several friends for more than 30 years and was still making new ones along the way. Her love of life, smile, laughter and sense of humor, was abundant, infectious and loved by all.
Barbara wore many hats. She was a daycare teacher, a muscular therapist and a reflexologist. She never wanted to follow any rules and did things her own way. She was a lifelong volunteer for many different organizations. She also created new programs and new ways to help with a flurry of donations.
She was always a great listener, always at the ready to help someone in need. She gave with a full heart! Her zest for life was contagious. Whether someone needed a band aid, a hug, her last dollar or the scarf around her neck, she would give freely.
Barbara loved life. She liked to keep things simple. Her smile could light up a room. She had several passions: the ocean, books, music, tie-dye clothing and taking care of her plants. She always started her day with a fresh new attitude, letting the day take her wherever it led. She will be missed very much on this earth, but will remain in our hearts forever.
In honor of Barbara’s wishes, there will be no services at this time. We will be having a “Celebration of her Life” at a later date. Donations in Barbara’s memory may be made to: Mystic Valley Elder Services, 300 Commercial St. #19, Malden, MA 02148.
Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
