Our beloved wife, mother, and "Nanny" has gone to heaven! She was born to Helen and Glen Showers in Fulton, NY. She married the love of her life, Robert E. McCarthy on October 13, 1945. They shared 66 years of marriage. Bob and Barbara were inseparable. Barbara was a kind and caring person who never said a bad word about anyone. Her family was the most important thing in the world to her. She leaves a legacy of children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren who loved her dearly. They include her 3 daughters, Sandra McCarthy, Patricia and husband Gary Millican, and Pamela Calvert and the late Michael Calvert; grandchildren, Jason Millican and wife Krystal, Jill and husband Mark Emerson, Samantha Calvert, Greg Calvert and wife Hilary; great grandchildren, Avary Emerson, Jagger Pender, and Madison, Alyssa and Elliot Calvert. She also leaves behind her brother Jim Showers and sister Connie Cardinali. Barbara attended Epiphany of the Lord Catholic Church. She worked in Retail and had the gift of caring for babies, which she enjoyed immensely. When they weren't with family, Barbara and Bob enjoyed traveling, with the beach being her favorite place to spend her time. Visitation will be Monday, February 20 from 8:30 AM until 8:30 PM at Buchanan Funeral home with the family receiving guests from 5-7 PM. Mass of Christian Burial will be at Epiphany of the Lord Catholic Church on Tuesday, February 21 at 10:00 AM with burial immediately following at Resurrection Memorial Cemetery.
We will miss you greatly but we know you are in a joyful place with no more pain.
Until we meet again.
Your Loving Family…
