Obituary for Barbara Ann Kirk

February 26, 1948 - November 8, 2020
Marlborough, Massachusetts | Age 72


Barbara Ann Kirk, age 72, passed away on Sunday, November 8, 2020 at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, MA. She was born on February 26, 1948 in Manchester, NH, the daughter of the late Thekios and Vasilike (Papagiotas) Kirk.
Barbara was a 1966 graduate of Manchester Central High School in Manchester, NH and then earned a degree in Psychology from Wells College in Aurora, New York. Her career began as a manager in research laboratories at Massachusetts General Hospital. Her career later evolved into management positions in strategic marketing for high technology companies in the greater Boston area.
Barbara had the ability to bridge seeing the big picture with recognizing the details that needed attention today. She was the principal and founder of Barbara Kirk and Associates, a consulting firm based in Marlborough, Massachusetts, which cumulated her lifetime work in business management.
Barbara had enduring pride in her Greek heritage and a strong sense of family. She was always in contact with her immediate and extended family. Her ability to stay connected positioned her as a vital link and a bridge between different parts of the family. Her ability to coalesce her family will be greatly missed.
Barbara's passion was in her work with homemade arts and crafts. She loved spending countless hours in her craft room perfecting all different types of artistic practices. Her favorite pastime was making special handmade gifts and cards for her four great-nieces.
In addition to her parents, Barbara is preceded in death by her brother, Richard Kirk of Montclair, NJ.
She is survived by her sister Pam and her husband Ron Weilbrenner of Goffstown, NH; niece Heather and her husband Andrew and their daughters Lillian and Alexandra Cummings of Dunbarton, NH; nephew Zachary and his wife Meghan and their daughters Zoe and Georgia Weilbrenner of Goffstown, NH as well as several cousins.
Barbara will be interred in Pine Grove Cemetery in Manchester. All services are private and at the convenience of the family. Those wishing to make a memorial donation in her name are encouraged to do so to the Currier Museum of Art, 150 Ash St., Manchester, NH 03104 or at
