Barbara Bisnett Obituary

Barbara J. Bisnett,83, of Dexter,NY, passed away peacefully on March 22, 2024, at Samaritan Keep Nursing Home, where she had resided for the past seven years.

She is survived by her son, Jeffrey “Pete” Bisnett of Dexter, NY; two cousins, Gerald and Robert Taylor, and many nieces and nephews.

She is predeceased by her beloved husband, Edward W. Bisnett; a son, Gregory Bisnett in 2007, and two brothers, David and Richard Lapp.
