Obituary of Barbara Ann Mowery

With profound sorrow, we announce the passing of Barbara Ann (Maurer) Mowery, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend. At the age of 76, Barbara departed peacefully at her home in Robinson on December 28, 2023. Born on March 18, 1947, in Newark, NJ, she was the daughter of the late Clifford Joseph and Mary Magdalene (Chamer) Maurer. Preceded in death by brother Dennis Maurer.



Barbara's love and guidance were the cornerstones of our family. Survived by loving husband of 56 years, Robert H Mowery, Jr.; Sons Robert H Mowery III and wife Tracy (Moon, PA); James C Mowery and wife Sabrina (Hillsboro, OR); Brian C. Mowery (Somerset, PA).


Grandchildren Liam Mowery, Jacob Mowery, Madison Mowery, Hailey Mowery (children of Robert & wife Tracy); Brandon Mowery and Bradley Mowery (children of Brian).


Great-grandchild Maya Mowery (daughter of Brandon).


Brother Clifford J. Maurer, Jr. and wife Sara; Sister Kathy Chamberlain and husband Mark.


Nieces and nephews: Geoff Maurer, Stephanie Maurer, Jennifer Maurer, Kelly Chamberlain, and Molly Chamberlain.


Barbara's early love for arts and crafts blossomed into a life marked by creativity and affection. As a dedicated and supportive mother, she wholeheartedly nurtured her sons in their academic and sporting pursuits, always lending a sympathetic ear. Her nurturing spirit extended beyond her immediate family, enriching young minds as a pre-K teaching assistant and guiding children as a den mother in scouting.


Barbara's joy in sharing her passions extended to her grandchildren, with whom she lovingly shared the arts of cooking, baking, crocheting, and sewing. She shared her adoration of animals with her children and grandchildren throughout life. A lover of travel, her last memorable trip to Oregon allowed her to embrace the beauty of the Northwest outdoors with her son James. Barbara's enduring legacy of love, dedication, and joy continues to shine, inspiring all who had the privilege of knowing her.


Dedication and joy will continue to live on as we invite you to join us in celebrating Barbara's life and sharing your treasured memories. Friends will be received Tuesday Jan 2nd from 11am until time of service at 1pm at Kenneth  A. Stuart Funeral Home, 139 Ligonier Street, New Florence PA.  Pastor Kim Betz officiating. Interment Germany Lutheran Cemetery.
