Barbara enjoyed spending time at the Casino, and more importantly, the “tea” where conversation revolved around finding out “what is going on” and her favorite saying: “who y’all talkin’ about” or “who, who?”  Barbara was preceded by her brothers: Virgil McCray, Jr.; Albert (Mary Lou) McCray; Allen McCray; a brother-in-law: Marvin Hall; and her sister: Hazel McCray. 


Barbara is survived by her only child: Reuben (Georgette) McCray, of Georgetown, DE.  Also surviving are two brothers: Charles (Edna) McCray; and Alfred (Sherridia) McCray, both of Frankford, DE; and a sister: Jenny Hall, of Millsboro; one sister-in-law: Patricia McCray, of Millsboro and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family members, and many friends.


A funeral service, and Celebration of Her Life will be held on Saturday, September 7, 2019 at 12:00 Noon at St. John 2nd Baptist Church on Mount Joy Road, Millsboro, DE.  Friends may call one hour prior starting at 11:00 AM for viewing and visitation.   Bishop Roland Mifflin will officiate.   Interment follows at the Antioch AME Church Cemetery, in Frankford, DE.
