Barbara M. Varano

ONEONTA — Barbara M. Varano, 83, of Houston, Texas, formerly of Oneonta, passed away Thursday, Oct. 21, 2004, at the home of her daughter, Elizabeth Varano. Barbara died of complications from lung cancer.

Barbara was born July 22, 1921, to Ellen and Charles McCarthy. She grew up in Oneonta and attended Oneonta High School and the business school in Utica.

She had two sisters, Jane McCarthy and Virginia Otto.

Barbara worked at the State University College at Oneonta as an assistant to the athletic director and then as an assistant to the registrar. She retired in 1983. After retiring, Barbara was an active volunteer for A.O. Fox Memorial Hospital and the Catskill Area Hospice and Palliative Care in Oneonta.

She also enjoyed playing golf, bridge, traveling and taking care of her two, four-legged grandchildren, Harley and Rose, in Houston. To say she enjoyed baseball and the Yankees was an understatement, as one of her parting concerns was, "What time do the Yankees play tonight?"

Barbara is survived by her two daughters, Ellen Moritz and her husband, Greg Boss, of Royal Palm Beach, Fla., and Elizabeth Varano of Houston, Texas; and one granddaughter, Dana Moritz of Orlando, Fla.

Barbara was preceded in death by her parents and her two sisters, Jane McCarthy and Virginia Otto.
