It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Barbara “Bobbie” (Bernacki) Nachilly, of Farmington, CT Wednesday, August 14, 2019. A beloved and devoted wife, mother, teacher and friend with whom we were fortunate to share our lives and whose smile was like no other has now gone to a special place in heaven. The eldest daughter of the late Walter and Helen (Dabkowski) Bernacki she was born and raised in New Britain. She attended St. Mary’s School and New Britain High School. She earned her Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Mathematics & Chemistry from CCSU. Her education continued at UCONN where she was the recipient of numerous science grants. Barbara’s passion and devotion to teach mathematics brought her back to New Britain High School. Throughout her years there she created an enduring influence on her students that will last a lifetime. Barbara and her husband John moved to Farmington where they built their home and raised their family. Always keeping busy she stayed active in her community. She was a former board member at the Wheeler YMCA, a past Chairman of the Farmington Historical Society and was an active fundraiser and current member of the Farmington Republican Town Committee. Barbara loved the outdoors and could be found in her beautiful backyard tending to all of her plants. Spending time with her family was always a priority. She could often be found with her family on the golf course or skiing on the slopes.

Along with her husband of sixty-two years John, she is survived by her children and their spouses John and Diana DeValk Nachilly of Durham NH, Keith and Mabel Nachilly of Jupiter FL and Audrey and James Shea of Farmington, CT, her three adored grandchildren Tyler, Sebastian and Erin filled her life with so much happiness and joy. She is also survived by her sister Helene Rymash and brother Walter Bernacki as well as many cousins, nieces, nephews and great friends. Bobbie was greeted in heaven with a hug so tight from her grandson Bernard who will never leave her sight. She is now at peace surrounded with an everlasting love that she gave to us all so graciously.

A Celebration of Barbara’s life will be held Saturday, September 7, 2019 at 10 a.m. at The Church of St. Patrick, 110 Main St., Farmington, CT.
