Ellenton, FL / Hornell, NY– Barbara Scott Clancy, 80, died peacefully on July 28, 2015.
Born in Avoca, NY on September 1, 1934, Barb was the daughter of Alida Scott Lefebre. She was the beloved sister of Linda Scott Egmond, now deceased.
She met Tom Clancy in high school in Hornell, NY. They married in 1956 after Barb graduated from Alfred University. They raised Tom, Jr. (Anna) of Barrington, RI and Pamela Jane of Delmar, NY. She later earned her Master’s degree from Conesus College.
Barb taught English in many schools while Tom’s work with the J.C. Penney Company moved them to numerous cities. She retired in the early 1980s when they moved to Fort Wright, KY. It was there that she tried her hand at professional framing.
She and Tom began wintering in Colony Cove, Ellenton, FL in the mid 1990s. Barb was a past President of the Colony Cove Hobby Club, where she made many close friends. She loved all needlecraft, including quilting, cross-stitching and sewing.
Besides her husband and children, the lights of Barb’s life were her granddaughters, Holly, Kate and Laura Clancy. She was their beloved Baba. They laughed together, pulled pranks, and had their own inside jokes. She will be sorely missed.
A graveside memorial service will be held at Saturday (August 22, 2015) at 11:00 a.m. at St. Mary’s Cemetery, Fremont, NY, where she will be buried beside her husband.
