Barb graduated from Geneva High School, and retired from AT&T. After retirement, she returned to work at Sam’s Club, where she loved interacting with customers. Barb enjoyed gardening, bird watching, reading, musical theater, game shows and traveling (especially to casinos with slot machines). She was a huge Syracuse basketball fan, and planned all of her activities around their games.
She is survived by her daughters Tracy Murphy of Syracuse, and Karen (Steve) Barto of Seneca Falls; son, Roger Murphy of Georgia; five grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren.
Barb was predeceased by the love of her life, her husband Francis Conway.
Barb had a warm smile and a kind word for everyone; she will be missed. Special thanks to Dr. Ryan Magnuson and the Crouse ICU team for their compassionate care.
