Barbara E. Cleary of Carmel, NY passed away on February 16, 2019 at the age of 74. She was born in Ossining, NY on September 20, 1944, the daughter of Harry and Dorothy (neé Metz) Benz.

Barbara lived to sing. Along with singing in different church choirs, she sang with the Westchester Chorale Society, and the music commuters. She also performed at various nursing homes, and senior communities, at funeral services and masses. She also loved to act, and enjoyed similar success on stage. Most of all she loved her kids, and grandkids, and cherished every moment they spent together. In the last few years before Barbara's passing, she lived her life more than some do in a lifetime. May she rest in peace, singing in a heavenly choir.

Barbara is survived by her children Don Santoro and Bonnie Woodhouse, and three grandchildren.

Services for Ms. Cleary will be held at a later date.
