Barbara Ann Cardillo of Mahopac, NY and formerly of Yonkers and the Bronx, NY passed away on Thursday June 15, 2017. She was born in the Bronx on December 24, 1941, the daughter of Joseph and Lillian Glantz Koenig.

Survived by her daughters, Dorothy Dadabo and Donna Bruno, her grandchildren Danielle, Christina and Alex and her brother, Robert Koenig and his wife Margaret. She is predeceased by her sister, Dorothy (Koenig) LaTorre, and her loving husband Joseph Cardillo.

Barbara was very devoted to her family and played a tremendous role as a very special mother and grandmother. Always ready for an adventure or a quiet comforting talk, she was a central part of their lives. She led by example, showing incredible strength, courage and kindness.

She took great pride, in her work as a childcare and eldercare provider and was active in volunteer work. Barbara was the first volunteer Advocate for the Disabled in Westchester County and provided a much needed voice in the community. She continued to volunteer, sometimes reading to young children or the sight impaired or most recently by contributing her time to the Putnam Hospital Center Thrift Shop and The Koehler Senior Center dancers, having fun entertaining residents at local nursing homes.

Affectionately known to many as "Little Barbara", she enjoyed baking cookies to share and was always quick with a smile and a kind word. With her open, loving way Barbara has touched many hearts and will be fondly remembered.

Visiting will be held on Monday June 19, 2017 from 1-3 pm and 6-8 pm at Joseph J. Smith Funeral Home. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Tuesday June 20, 2017 at 10 am at St. John the Evangelist Church in Mahopac with interment to follow at Woodlawn Cemetery, Bronx, NY.
