Barbara Jean Hervey


Barbara Jean Hervey went home to be with the Lord Saturday, September 6, 2014 after suffering from stage four cancer. She will be missed for her spunky attitude and always willing to help the less fortunate. She was well known for her cooking and feeding the neighbors. She loved to spend time with family, especially her only grandson. She loved to have cookouts with family and friends and go on family outings.  She was a trooper through her pain, and although she will be missed by her family and friends here on earth, we know that she is no longer in pain, and is home with her parents and brother that she had been separated from for so many years. Barb passed on in the comfort of her home, surrounded by her family, which is what she wanted.

Barb was Born February 2, 1961 in New Brunswick NJ, to the late Rev. William Hervey and late Bessie Hervey.  Later they moved to the Rochester area, where she attended and graduated from Irondequoit High School in 79′. She then joined the Rochester Carpenters Union Local 276, where she worked for many years. A skilled carpenter and handy women.  She could fix just about anything. In the late 90′s she moved to Genesee County to raise her children that she was so proud of. As a single mother, she was a hard worker and provided well to her two children.

Along with her parents, Barbara is predeceased by her brother Terrance Hervey and a dear friend Annie Adamski.

Barbara is survived by her two children, William Cassidy and Bianca Hervey; one “future” son in law, Nathan Neuhaus; one grandson, Noah Neuhaus; her siblings, Tom Hervey,  Tim (Cyndy) Hervey, Patricia Macking and Kimberly (Gabriel) Rivera; many nieces and nephews, Hannibal, Ryan (Brittany) , Malerie, Samantha, Hannah, Jessica, Jennifer, and Emmanuel. She is also survived by one great nephew, Marshall and many close friends,  including James Richardson who cared for Barb through her sickness.

A Memorial Service will be held Wednesday, September 17th, 4:30 P.M. at the East Pembroke Volunteer Fire Hall located at 2623 West Main Road, East Pembroke NY 14056. The service will be followed by a picnic at the same location.

    I didn’t know your Mom well, yet I can see from what a good person you are and how much you love, that she must have been very special person. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. May God’s peace be with you. Love, Grandma Ann

    moving to hervey bay in dec or jan 2012 I am loonkig for the slower pace, less population, more nature based activities. Have lived in Brooklyn, (NSW), Dandenong, (Vic) and most recently Moggill (Qld). We are bringing a young family and see plenty of things to do and get involved in. love to hear from anyone in the 30 40 year old age group that I can connect with so that settling in takes less than 2 years which is how long it took me in Brisbane. We don’t know one person yet!! Our big adventure.

    The madras cairps are cute.Today’s inanity: I was so pleased with myself for dropping Seamus off at the orthodontist and taking Grace straight to the DMV for her permit exam, i.e. killing two birds with one stone. We even had time to stop at the post office and got back to the orthodontist just as Seamus was finished. Then, we were back at home for FIVE minutes, and he somehow got a bracket unglued and we had to go straight back to the orthodontist.
