June 22, 1940 — January 30, 2018
Barbara Bishko Quatrano, age 77, of Maple Ridge Drive, Boone, passed away Tuesday morning, January 30, 2018, at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem.
Barbi loved living in Corvallis and she raised her family of three there. She could be found swimming at the women's building, reading for the blind, serving blintzes at Hadassah's “Blintz Brunch,” folk dancing, organizing and hosting international students through Crossroads, and fiercely supporting the public schools and Spartan sports. Barbi never forgot Corvallis, telling stories fondly and reliving memories for more than 30 years.
Barbi is survived by her sister, Nan Iwasaki of Los Angeles, California; son, Stephen Quatrano and wife Doreen Karoll of Lexington, Massachusetts; two daughters, Beth Quatrano Diamond and husband Marc of Dallas, Texas, and Carrie Quatrano Singh and husband Vijay of Charleston, South Carolina; three granddaughters, Sarah Quatrano of Jacksonville, Florida, Nadia Diamond of Cleveland, Ohio, and Maela Singh of St. Louis, Missouri; two grandsons, Alex Quatrano and wife Catherine of Boston, Massachusetts, and Ben Diamond of Princeton, New Jersey.
She was preceded in death by her father and mother, Harold and Rosalie Graiver Bishko; two brothers, Donald Bishko and Stephen Bishko; and one sister, Elaine Durkac.
In lieu of flowers, consider donations in her memory to Hadassah or Oregon State's Crossroads International.
