MONTENEGRO, Barbara Jean Bezek. November 17, 1950 - February 7, 2014. Was born in Binghamton, New York where she graduated from Broome Community College and SUNY at Cortland with a BS Degree in Sociology. She moved to Tucson and enjoyed employment at the Pima Community College, East Campus where she made many dear friends and was matched with Duncan, her canine companion. During her life in Arizona, Barbara enjoyed singing in the Our Mother of Sorrows and St. Pius X Catholic Churches, travelling, all of the arts, as well as decorating and the world of jewelry. Barbara volunteered for many years at the Arthritis Foundation. She continually surrounded herself with meaningful, personal relationships, that became an extended family that crosses the country. Barbara has maintained friendships back to the childhood years. She will be missed by the many friends she made: both at PCC and her faith communities. She is survived by her son, Andrew and his father, Caesar; her brothers and sisters, Jack (Patty), Linda (Bob), Judy, Jill and Tony (Lori); her many nieces, nephews, cousins and her life-long friends, Marcia Chidester and Vicci Fox. Special thanks to the TMC Hospice for comforting her in her final hours. Barbara's Memorial Service will be held at St Pius X Catholic Church on Tuesday, February 11, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. 1800 N.
