Barbara Lowell Kluck, 90

HAMDEN, CONN. — Barbara Lowell "Tweetie" Kluck, 90, wife of the late Edward A. Kluck, of Hamden, Conn., passed peacefully away Sunday, Feb. 24, 2019, at her home.

She was born in Waterbury, Conn., on May 23, 1928, a daughter of the late Walter W. and Aletha Wells Lowell Sr., and had resided in Hamden for many years. Barbara graduated from the Northfield School for Girls and from the University of Connecticut with a B.S. Degree in Home Economics, and was employed in glass research in the fiber optics industry. She was a member of the Mary Clapp Wooster Chapter of the D.A.R., Kappa Kappa Gamma Alumni Assoc., a dedicated volunteer baby cuddler at Yale-New Haven Hospital, and a longtime member of the Mount Carmel Congregational Church. Barbara was a loyal and enthusiastic supporter of UCONN football and basketball.

She may have resided in Hamden, but her heart was firmly planted at 'The Grove' on Highland Lake in Bridgton, Maine. Her passion was her family — she was always there at sporting events, concerts, and whatever else her children, grandchildren, and extended family undertook. Everyone was always welcome at her table and in her home.

She is survived by her children and spouses, Nancy (Will Rhys) Kluck of Maine, Judith (David) Peters of Mass., Joan (Peter) Bub of N.Y., Peter (Mary Ellen) Kluck of Fla.; a brother Walter Lowell Jr. of Fla.; and her grandchildren Sarah (Matt) Koulouris of Mass., Katie Peters of Calif., Dr. Christine Bub of N.Y., Jennifer (Chris) Meyer of Wash., Nathan Kluck of Fla., and Abigail "Abbie" Kluck of Fla. She is also survived by three nieces and four nephews. Barbara was predeceased by a brother, Robert Lowell; a sister, Ann Cavanaugh; and her infant son, Edward Kluck Jr.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend a Memorial Service on Saturday, March 9, at 2 p.m., at the Mount Carmel Congregational Church, 3284 Whitney Ave., Hamden, Conn., followed by a reception in the church fellowship hall. In lieu of flowers, Barbara requested that memorial contributions may be sent to the Smilow Cancer Hospital, 36 Park St., New Haven, CT 06511, or to CT Hospice, 100 Double Beach Rd., Branford, CT 06455.
