NORTH READING, MA — Barbara P. (Hoyt) Enos, 84, of North Reading, passed away on Wednesday, July 20, 2022 at Care One at Wilmington.

She was predeceased by her husband Robert (Bob) Enos.

Barbara worked for many years as a school bus driver and then as a school custodian. She was very athletic in her younger years and participated in many sports and recreational activities including softball, cross-country skiing, bowling, canoeing, camping, birdwatching, and playing bingo. She enjoyed following both local and professional sports, particularly the Red Sox and the Patriots. One of her favorite memories was meeting Jerry Remy during a trip to spring training.
