Barbara Mcmurray

May 10, 1940 — January 8, 2020

Barbara McMurray, 79, of Cambridge Springs, died Wednesday, January 8, 2020 at home. She was born in Akron, Ohio in 1940, the daughter of the late Andrew and Helen Botos.

Throughout her professional life Barbara worked as a secretary. She was particularly proud of the more than 20 years she worked at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, from which she retired.

Barbara was a very creative person who played piano, had a lovely singing voice and did exquisite calligraphy. She enjoyed watching the Steelers, was a highly skilled ping pong player, and she loved having a good laugh. She also loved tending to her flowers, reading, and great conversation. Barbara especially took pride in making occasions special for her family by creating wonderful decorations, delicious meals and incredible desserts. She was a generous gift-giver and a treasure to those who knew her best and will miss her most.

She was preceded in death by two brothers, Richard Botos and Charles Botos.

Survivors include Barbara’s husband of 59 years, James McMurray; a son, Devin (Elizabeth) McMurray, of Cambridge Springs; a daughter, Brenda (Rory O'Donnell) McMurray, of Edinboro; three grandchildren, Dalton McMurray, Robert (Makaila) Benge and Samantha (Cody Clore) Benge; and two great grandchildren, Michael Benge and Gabriel Clore.
