It would be easy at a moment like this to focus on all that we lost along with future time that won’t be spent with a warm, engaging, tenacious woman whose curiosity and enthusiasm for life knew no bounds. However, we choose to focus on the time we were given to be with this remarkable woman as a loving wife, mother, mother-in-law and grandmother. We appreciate and value the time we had knowing we will meet again but until such time she will be missed greatly.
Barbara is survived by her loving husband, Herbert G. Conklin; her son: Bryan H. Conklin and his wife Nancy of Webster, NY; her daughters: Kim B. (Conklin) Marshall and her husband Daniel of Cornwall, NY and Melissa J. (Conklin) Taylor and her husband Robert of Circleville, NY; her grandchildren: Nicole Clavell and her husband Michael, Carly Marshall; and her brothers: Richard Roth of Tuxedo, NY and Chester Roth of Jensen Beach, FL.
