ONEONTA – Barbara Angellotti Enck, loving sister, aunt, cousin, mother of one daughter and countless animals, has died. She was 69.

Barbara loved watching movies, baking award-winning desserts, decorating for the holidays and befriending wildlife and neighborhood strays. Jokingly called Dr. Doolittle, she had an uncanny ability to attract every dog, cat, squirrel, skunk, bat, or bear in the area and keep them well-fed.
