Barbara M (Picard) Howson

Barbara M (Picard) Howson, 85, of Providence RI and Palm Coast FL passed away peacefully on 3/31/23 after a brief illness.

Always the life of the party, she was dedicated to her passions.

Barbara was the youngest child of her late parents Zephir C Picard & Eva (Gould) Picard. Always the life of the party, she was dedicated to her passions. These included her family, her careers in retail and real estate, and traveling - especially cruising. She had a wonderful way of making even the most mundane event feel special. Barbara was predeceased by her brothers Alfred, Donald, & Norman Picard, her husband John “Jack” Howson, daughter Debra Howson & grandchild Isaiah Howson. She is survived by her son Michael, her daughter Lori (Howson) Aliano, son-in-law Stephen, her 2 grandchildren Eric Aliano & Stephanie (Aliano) Shuping, grandson-in-law Zachary, her siblings Roger Picard & Irene (Picard) Ethier as well as many nieces and nephews whom she absolutely adored.

Funeral services will be held at a future date as Barbara wanted her ashes to be interred with her husband Jack at Bushnell National Cemetery in Florida. The family is in the process of scheduling their joint celebration of life at Bushnell.
