Born to Dominick and Mildred (Volpicelli) DiMario on August 24, 1934 in Nanticoke PA, Barbara (DiMario) Millikin left this beautiful earth for a much better place on April 22, 2019.

Barbara recently asked “when did I get old?” but even though her body showed her 84 years of experience, her mannerisms and sense of humor kept her spirit young and she enjoyed life until the end.

Barbara worked in the hospitality industry until her retirement in 2004. She then filled her days (and added many years to her life) with joy and friendship at the Kingston Active Adult Center where she volunteered serving lunch before playing an intense game of shuffleboard.

An avid reader, she enjoyed spending quiet time with her collection of books and magazines. She played a version of solitaire where only she knew the rules and those rules changed daily. Barbara loved music and could outlast someone half her age on the dance floor. She traveled on bus trips with her closest of friends and thoroughly enjoyed live theatre and musicals at many different local venues. Once told by concerned family that she can’t eat ice cream every single night, her response was “why can’t I?” Touché mom and enjoy.

Barbara lived, loved and laughed her way through life. She made an impact on everyone she had the privilege of knowing. She has left us in body only as her beautiful spirit will always remain in our hearts.

Barbara’s surviving family members include children Linda (Toback) Gullotto and her husband Joe of Nanticoke, Robert Millikin of Centerville Ohio, Annette (Millikin) Nogic of Dallas and Angela Millikin of Nanticoke. Her siblings include brothers Paul DiMario and his wife Barbara of Central Lake MI and Anthony DiMario and his wife Kathy of Toms River NJ and sister Frances (DiMario) Ponko of Hanover Twp. “Meme” was blessed with seven grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and wonderful loving friends.

Funeral Services are private and are being held at the convenience of the family from the Corcoran Funeral Home, Inc., 20 South Main Street, Plains, PA 18705.
