RODIA Barbara
Birth:          1943 Philadelphia, Pa.
Death:          4 Jul 2018 Warminster, Pa.

obit of Anna Matuijosaitis Rodia
Barbara A. Rodia Feeney, 75, a longtime resident of Holland, PA died on July 4, 2018, peacefully at 
Abington Jefferson Health Hospice in Warminster.
Barbara was reunited with the late James P. Feeney, Sr., her soulmate and beloved husband of 50 years.
 Born in Philadelphia, Barbara was the daughter of the late Louis and Anne Matijosaitis Rodia.  Barbara 
remained a resident of Philadelphia until she moved with her husband, James Sr., to Holland in 1971 where 
they raised their four children.  They were a family of deep religious faith and devoted communicants of St. 
Bede the Venerable Church in Holland.  In 1990, James Sr. and Barbara founded the reputable Brotherston 
Homecare in Bensalem which continues its operations under the leadership of James Jr.
 Barbara's most treasured possession was her family, and she always put them first.  Her pure joy was 
spending quality time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  She enjoyed vacationing with family 
including trips to Disney, the beach, and the annual football trip.  In her later years, you could find her on 
the porch in Wildwood during the summer.  There, with a glass of pinot noir, over ice, of course, she would 
have intimate conversations with family and watch the kids, and sometimes adults, play in the yard.  
Nothing made her happier than having all of the family together under one roof for their traditional Italian 
Christmas dinner and visit from Santa Claus.
Barbara is survived by her loving children, Karen (Bruce Demoss), James Jr. (Mary), Mark Sr. (Kristin), and 
Matthew Sr. (Jennifer).  The legacy of James Sr. and Barbara will be carried on by their cherished 
grandchildren, Amanda (Matthew Sarant), Christopher (Meaghan), Bryan (Sydney), Matthew Jr., Piper, 
Isabella, Logan, Jordan, and Mark Jr.; and great-grandchildren, James, Brooklyn, and one expected in 
February.  Barbara is also survived by the siblings of James Sr., Patricia Croghan, Francis (Katherine), and 
Maureen (Joseph McDonnell).  She will be deeply missed by her family and by all who came to know her.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend her viewing from 9:30 AM until her Funeral Mass at 11:00 AM on 
Wednesday, July 11, 2018, at St. Bede the Venerable Church, 1071 Holland Rd. Holland, PA 18966.
