Barbara Linden Mulholland passed away at home June 17, 2016. Her family said she had no known health problems at the time of her death. The cause, they said was apparent sudden heart failure.
She was born Feb. 12, 1942, to Rene Linden and Mildred Caccavo. Barbara was proud to share her birth date with President Lincoln, which inspired her nickname, "the Barberaham." She was raised with her four siblings in the Detroit suburb of Grosse Pointe, Mich. Barbara attended high school and college in Michigan and, in 1965, moved to New York City to pursue a career in advertising. She married Timothy Mulholland in 1966 and moved to Wilton, Conn. in 1970. They had three children, Megan, Heather and Patrick. Barbara said her home in Wilton was always her favorite "with a small red barn in back and a huge copper beech tree in the front.” In 1977, they moved to Las Vegas and following a divorce, Barbara worked at Saks Fifth Avenue, the Tropicana Hotel and the Las Vegas Pro-Am Golf Tournament.
