Cora Green Barney

ONEONTA Cora Green Barney, age 95, passed away Dec. 19, 2012, at the Chestnut Park Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, Oneonta.

Cora was born Dec. 26, 1916, to Grant and Bertha (Tamsett/Lent) Green at the family home in West Oneonta.

Cora graduated from Oneonta High School in 1935. She was a 1936 graduate of Albany Business College. From 1936-1942 she worked as a secretary for TP-TM Hughson Insurance in Oneonta.

Upon her marriage to Harold A. Barney on June 18, 1942, she became a full-time housewife. She and Harold first lived on Rose Avenue in Oneonta, and then moved to a home they had built on Route 23 in West Oneonta.

She and Harold took great pride in their home, keeping the home well-maintained inside and outside. Cora had several collections of bells, thimbles, teacups, teapots and various interesting plates.

Cora continued to live at the West Oneonta home for about five years after Harold died. When her health failed and she could no longer live there she became a resident of the Chestnut Park Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in 2007.

Cora was predeceased by her son Charles, husband, Harold, brothers Carl and Owen, and sisters Louise, Velma, and Ruth.

She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Esther (Robert J) Reynolds; granddaughter Mary Reynolds and partner Becky Johnson, great-grandsons Tyler and Zachary Yim; sisters Marcia Phillips and Marian Green; and several nieces and nephews.

Cora has requested no calling hours and no funeral. The family will hold a remembrance service at a later date.

Instead of flowers the family request that donations be made to The West Oneonta Baptist Church, West Oneonta, NY 13861 or the Residence Fund at The Chestnut Park Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, 330 Chestnut St., Oneonta, NY 13820.
