Massena: Barbara J. (Basford) Bartholomew passed away on Tuesday, March 16, 2021. She leaves behind three children and a beloved son-in-law; Heather Owens (Massena, NY), Hillary and Bobby Ray (Massena, NY), and Ethan Bartholomew (Bryan, TX). She leaves behind three grandchildren, Jonathan Clark and wife Nichola (Massena, NY), Chance Owens (La Porte, TX) and Erica Clark (Vancouver, WA) who were the center of her world and always brought a smile to her face. She also leaves behind her great-granddaughter, “Little Miss Sunshine” Haylee Clark, who will continue to be a ray of sunshine for her Grams’ as she continues to watch over her family from above.

Barbara was born February 15, 1951 to Milford and Lena (Thompson) Basford.

Barbara is survived by her siblings; Danny Basford and wife Patricia, Anne Howes and husband Gerry, Everett Basford and wife Denise, Ray Basford and wife Sue. She also leaves behind Eric Bartholomew (Rensselaer Falls, NY), Francis and Ethel “Pie” Benoit (Lake Arthur, LA) who were her brothers and sister at heart. She also leaves behind many friends, nieces, nephews, cousins, family members, and extended family members who were all very special to her. She loved them all like they were her own.
Barbara is predeceased by her parents, Milford and Lena Basford, her sister and brother-in-law Ruth and Dean Fishbeck, a great-niece Carly Basford, a great-nephew Alex Basford, her mother-in-law and dear friend, Betty A. Downing and her daughter-in-law, Myra Towell. Scott Bartholomew, her high school sweetheart, and husband of 30 years, also predeceases her by 8 years this month.

She spent her final days surrounded by so many who showered her with love by visiting, calling, and Facetiming. This brought her so much joy, and in return, she would make jokes to put a smile on their face and help ease their pain as she was saying her goodbyes to them. Barbara always found the good in people. As throughout her life, her strength, determination and love for others was shown as she lived out her last days in her way, and in her own time.

Barbara loved her plants and her gardens. She enjoyed refinishing old furniture, caning chairs, and working with her tools. She loved to knit, crochet, and sew and would take the opportunity to teach anyone who would let her.

The family would like to give a heartfelt thank you to Dr. Rohit Barretto (formerly of Massena Med Group), Dr Rahul Seth (Upstate Cancer Center) and Dr. Eyal Kedar (Canton SLHCS) for going above and beyond. Their continued support meant the world to her, and to her family. We feel so fortunate to have had them on our side, even when she was no longer in their care.

We would also like to thank Hospice of St. Lawrence Valley. Her primary nurse, Beth Steemberg, was exactly what she needed; upbeat, positive and full of laughs. We would also like to thank her support/on call team for their late night assistance. You made her transition much easier.
