Barbara A. Nolan

Barbara Ann Nolan was born in Boston, MA on July 15th, 1949.  She passed away peacefully on October 25, 2020 after a brief illness.  She is predeceased by her parents James and Priscilla Nolan and her brother Jimmy and sister Priscilla Sinatra.  She leaves behind her daughter Rachael, her daughter-in-law Renee, her brother-in-law Charles, her nieces Julie and Suzanne, and her sister-in-law Renee Nolan.

Barbara went to nursing school in the early 1970s and was an LPN at Brigham and Women’s and Mass General.  She moved to Martha’s Vineyard in the mid-1970s where she worked briefly as a nurse at the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital.  She loved the island so much that she became a shuttle and tour bus driver during the late 1980s and early 1990s.  Barbara obtained her MA in Clinical Psychology at Cambridge College and returned to work at Mass General as a clinician for a short time before returning to Martha’s Vineyard.  Barbara was a very social person enjoying time with her good friends on the Vineyard.  Her charm and quick wit will be missed by the many loved ones that she leaves behind. 

A Celebration of Life will be held in the Spring of 2021.
