SCARBOROUGH — Barbara Sherry Beaudoin, 90, of Williamsburg Lane, died peacefully Sunday, March 4, at St. Joseph’s Rehabilitation and Living Center; her loving family was by her side.

Barbara was born in Portland on April 23, 1927, the daughter of the late Timothy L. and Helen V. (Moore) Sherry. She graduated from Lewiston High School and then earned her bachelor’s degree, starting at Bates College and finishing at Marietta College in Ohio.
