Beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, in-law, step-mother and friend;

Barbara A. (Kriete) (Roscoe) Deschenes, 83, of Hudson, New Hampshire, passed away after a long hospital stay on Thursday November 23, 2023, at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Nashua, NH.

She was the loving wife of the late Francis P. “Mike” Deschenes, who predeceased her on December 26, 2019. They had enjoyed over 30 years of marriage and lived in Pelham NH.

After her retirement from Delta Education in Nashua NH, Barbara worked as a realtor for the National Association of Realtors for over 30 years.

Amongst her many interests, including playing cards, cribbage and dominos, Barbara enjoyed playing bingo with her "Bingo Buddies", road trips to Florida, and spending time with her family and friends.

Barbara was also known for having the best manicures and hairdo. Grammy always gave the best advice and was seen front row at all her family's most special events.
