Obituary of Barbara Handy

Barbara “MomMom” Handy, 70 years of Erial, NJ passed away Monday, March 19, 2018 while a patient at Select Specialty Hospital in Camp Hill, PA. Barbara was born August 27, 1947 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She worked the majority of her years in the traffic department of several news stations, most recently Fox 29 Philadelphia. Barbara was as a member of St. Simon Stock Parish where you could find her in the pew or as a frequent reader.  She enjoyed a good laugh, great music, a cool gadget, playing Jeopardy, going to church, and her numbers.  When she met you, one of the first questions asked was, “when’s your birthday?”  And if she liked it, that made her list of numbers. She loved her children and grandchildren more than words could say.

Barbara is survived by her children, Andrea Handy (daughter), Jason Brown (son), Jannie Brown (daughter-in-law), as well as grandchildren, Jessica Brown, Andrew Foster and Jocelyn Brown.  Her niece, Raemarie Murphy and nephews Anthony Murphy and Derrick Murphy.  In addition, she leaves behind a host of family and friends.  A very special thank you to her daughter, Andrea Handy for her loving care and support and for taking care of the preparations.
