September 26, 1937 — October 9, 2022


Barbara (Zamagias) Monea, 85, passed away on Sunday, October 9, 2022.

Born on September 26, 1937, in Johnstown, PA, to Michael and Lottie (Andrews) Zamagias, she lived in Alliance most of her life.

She was a 1955 graduate of Alliance High School where she was involved in the Booster Club, Chronicle Staff, Mixed Chorus, Girls Chorus and Operetta. She worked first as a legal secretary, and then for Sancap Abrasives for many years. Barbara loved to serve her community and was active in the Alliance Chamber of Commerce, the Quota Club and YWCA. She enjoyed shopping, driving her baby blue Lincoln Continental, eating chocolate and Heggy's buttered french fries; but most of all, she loved spending time with family.
