Barbara M. Whiteley

1953 ∼ 2018

Barbara M. Whitely of Centerville died May 1, 2018 at the McCarthy Care Center of Hope Hospice in Sandwich, MA.

The daughter of the late H. Alfred Whiteley, Jr. and Marie L. Whitely, she was the fourth of five children.  She was predeceased by her elder sister Louise and by her long-time companion Larry Coggeshall.  She is survived by her older brothers John and Craig and her younger sister Jan, as well as three nieces, one nephew and three grandnieces and four grandnephews.

Barb was raised in Osterville and built her home in Centerville.  She loved to travel, but on her return often said how lucky she felt to live on Cape Cod.  She appreciated the beauty of the area and support of a close community.

Barbara brought fun and enthusiasm to everything in her life.  She loved people and always raised a smile or a laugh in people she met.  Barb always had a special place in her heart for children.  As a past president of the Osterville Angler’s Club she was very proud of their tournaments to raise funds for the Jimmy Fund.
