Barbara Mae Wyman, previously known as Barbara Walls, Barbara Biser. Although she always preferred Babs. Born 10/12/1937 to Dr. Newton A and Elizabeth Wyman in Philadelphia PA, Babs died 02/11/19 in the midst of her loving family in Bingham ME.
Always the teacher, she was happiest and most comfortable when children were around her. All the neighborhood kids liked her house best. Barbara taught for many years in the Migrant and Gear Up programs in Norridgewock and Madison. She was particularly proud of her work with the Fine Arts Program at Madison Junior High.
Another love of her life was theatre, either school or community. She loved being involved, either on stage or back stage. She worked with two Lakewood Theatres, one in East Madison ME and the other in Lakewood CO, and also the Park Street Players. She often volunteered her time and expertise to the local schools’ plays as well.
For most of us, any memories of Babs are tied into the family camp, Wyman’s Willa, on lake Wesserunsett. She was raised on the lake and spent every summer possible there, passing her deep love of lake life on to her children and family friends in the process.
Babs was blessed to find a special love twice in her life. Her first marriage to James Walls II resulted in Tracey Walls and James Walls III her eldest children. Her second marriage to William Biser resulted in Meaghan Miner and Maureen McDonald. Babs was incredibly fond of her nieces and nephews, and had a soft spot in her heart for her Grand-Beanes. Babs’ favorite role was as a Nan. Her six grandchildren were the absolute joys of her life.
Please stop by and celebrate with us as we share the memories, love and magic this incredible lady left us with at a farewell party.
“Bye-Bye Babs” on Saturday 2/23/19 from 2-5 at Heritage House, 260 Madison Avenue Skowhegan, ME *Appetizers & Cash Bar*
