Canterbury, NH - Barbara died peacefully at her daughter's home on the morning of January 11, 2019. Barbara was born to John and Catherine Griffin in Paxton, Mass. on August 22, 1926. She lived much of her childhood in Candia, NH with her 4 siblings and Mom and Dad. Barbara attended and graduated from Pinkerton Academy in 1945 with a nearly perfect grade point average. She was "wicked smaht". Barbara met and married Edward (Ed) Trombley, and according to Ed "she wouldn't leave him alone", so they had eight children - Edward, Thomas, Robert, Timothy, Joan, Paul, Ann, and Matthew. They raised their children in Londonderry, NH. Most of Barbara's career (outside of raising 8 kids) was as a book-keeper and office manager. In her retirement years, she volunteered as a grand-parent/aid at an elementary school in Maine where she lived for many years.
