Obituary of Barbara V. Luffman

Barbara V. Luffman, 79, of Amsterdam, New York, passed away peacefully on February 24, 2022 at her home. She was born on June 22, 1942 to the late Thomas Arthur and Katherine (Horn) Quinn.

Barbara worked as an Administrative Assistant for over 37 years. For the majority of her career she worked at the General Electric Company in Schenectady. She later transferred to different facilities as the company grew throughout the years. 

Outside of her career, Barbara poured her heart and soul into her household. She was a family-oriented woman who loved to organize and host family get-togethers, and always enjoyed being surrounded by those she loved. The only thing she enjoyed as much as the company of her family was the opportunity to bake and cook for them. Barbara was also a life-long cat lover, and she enjoyed spending time with her feline companions 

On July 4, 1992 she was united in marriage to James B. Luffman, who survives her. Barbara is also survived by her sons, Thomas (Michelle) Stottlar and Jeffrey (Brenda) Stottlar; her step-sons, James Luffman Jr., Michael Luffman, and Christopher Luffman; her grandchildren, Hannah, Dylan, Alicia, and Thomas Stottlar; step-grandchildren, Angel, Ryan, Anthony, and Alexandria Luffman; her sisters, Catherine Cain, Margaret Crandall, and Mary Lou Wells; as well as by her siblings-in-law, Anne Loucks, William Luffman, Susan Irish, and Edmund Luffman.

Aside from her parents, Thomas and Katherine, Barbara is preceded in passing by her siblings, Thomas, Arlen, Robert, Patricia, Maureen, and David.
