Obituary for Barbara Gale (Robinson)

Barbara Robinson Gale, age 92, a longtime resident of Nashua, NH, formerly of Simsbury and then Avon, CT, passed away on Nov. 5, 2022, after a period of declining health. She was the widow of Col. Richard Harris Gale.

Prior to her retirement, she was employed by Hartford Hospital as the Director of Radiology for many years. Previously she worked at Bristol Hospital at the emergency room intake. Her stories of those years were always interesting and intriguing.

Barbara enjoyed travel to distant lands, dancing the night away, and any and all celebrations with her large extended family. She could always be counted on for her level-headed advice, a warm welcoming smile, and her hearty laughter. In later years she appreciated her many good friends at the Huntington at Nashua as well as the multitude of activities and social events provided thereof.
