Barbara J. Trogler 77, passed away on January 21, 2020. Her final days were surrounded by family and friends that Barbara had touched during her life. Born on November 29, 1942, Barbara was the daughter of John and Dorothy (Aptt)Goulart, and sister to Mary (Goulart) Hathon, and was raised in Goucester Ma. In 1972, Barbara married Richard N. Trogler and together they raised their 3 boys in the home that Richard built for his family, in Georgetown MA. Barbara was a stay at home mother and worked hard at raising her boys, while also getting her bachelors degree in education from Salem State University. When Barbara's kids got older, she became an elementary teacher at the Paige School in West Newbury, MA. She worked there many years as a kindergarten and first grade teacher before retiring. Barbara loved teaching and was highly respected among her peers and the families that had the privilege of having her as a teacher. Nothing made Barbara happier than spending quality time with family and friends. Whether it was chatting it up over coffee, shopping with the girls, taking vacations, or attending many of the youth sports games that her and Richard frequently went to for their Grandchildren and nephews, Barbara never missed a beat. She was always up for a good time, and always around those that loved her the most.
