Watertown, New York- Barbara A. Gray, loving and devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, passed away, Sunday, November 11, 2012 at her Cooper St. home. She is survived by her husband Calvin S. Gray Jr. and her three children Terri Gray, Samantha Hamilton, and Calvin S. Gray III, as well as her seven grandchildren, Katie Greenfield, Samuel Sherman, Tasia Hamilton, Noah Gray, Christian Gray, Calvin S. Gray IV, and Macey Gray.
Barbara was not only a devoted mother to her own children but to her childrens friends as well, taking them in and giving them a home when needed. During her husbands Army service she was both mother and father at times as her husband Calvin dedicated his time to serving his country. Beside caring for her grandchildren, her love of a good book, and crocheting she also had a kind heart towards animals, taking in many strays and providing them a loving home. As busy as life was she always had time for her children and grandchildren, lending a shoulder to cry on and a hug to cheer that person up. She will be dearly missed by her family and the people who knew her well.
Private services for family and friends will be held Tuesday November 20th, at 1:00PM at Cleveland Funeral Home, 404 Sherman St, Watertown, NY.
Donations in Barbaras name may be made to the Jefferson County SPCA, 25056 Water St, or the Credo Foundation, 300 Woolworth bldg, Watertown, NY.
