Barbara Rumsey Obituary

A laughing jokester flew to be with her sons in heaven on December 3, 2023.  The world lost Barbara Joan Rumsey, aged 91 to health complications on a beautiful peaceful Sunday afternoon.  Barbara was born May 20, 1932 in Neptune, NJ daughter of the late Willis and Virginia Wright Parker.  She had been a resident of Ferncliff Nursing home where she received excellent care for four years.  Having lived in Yosman towers of Kingston for more than 20 years prior to that, Ulster and Dutchess counties have suffered a great loss. 

Many years were spent volunteering for multiple agencies like Walker Valley Fire Company, Pine Bush VFW, and the Kingston Visitors Center.

Barbara is survived by four children Stephen Walters of Washington, Donna Walters of New Jersey, David Rumsey of New York, and Todd Rumsey of New York.  Suffering greatly are 13 grandchildren and 12 Great Grandchildren. 

Waiting for her in heaven with open arms are two sons Kevin and Guy. 

The family will hold a small service at Ferncliff Nursing home when available, and a graveside service will be held in Pine Bush Cemetery in the Spring of 2024.  In lieu of flowers – donations may be made to The Walker Valley Fire company in Walker Valley NY.  You may share a special memory, photo, or condolence on Barbara's Tribute  Wall at  Arrangements compassionately completed by the E. B. Gormley Funeral Home 87 Main St. Phoenicia.
