Barbara A  Tobiason (Griffin)
TOBIASON, Barbara A. (Griffin) of Westford, formerly of Winchester, passed away on September 4, 2018. Born in Boston on March 6, 1940, Barbara was the daughter of William and Anne (O’Connor) Griffin. She grew up in Belmont, graduating from from Belmont High School in 1957. She went on to earn a degree in business from Simmons College in 1961.

She was Nana to Andrew, Benjamin, & Thomas Martin and Tobias & Jacob Bluestein. Barbara was predeceased by her sister Stephanie Griffin Dubinsky. In addition to her immediate family, she leaves her nephew Liam Dubinsky of Pacheco, CA, her niece Miriam Dubinsky of Denver, CO, many cousins in the US and Ireland, and an extended network of in-laws and their families.
