Margaret (Kimball) Barnes passed away peacefully at the Margaretville Hospital on April 13. She was born November 27, 1930 in Bloomville, NY to Jesse and Mary Kimball. Margaret, also known as Peg, attended schools in Bloomville and Stamford then graduated from Margaretville Central School in 1948. On December 17, 1950, she married Harrison (Bud) Barnes who survives.
Peg worked for “Ma Bell” in Fleischmanns until the company introduced dial tones, then baked a lot of wedding and birthday cakes. She liked camping, bowling, golf and quilting. But what she enjoyed most was baby-sitting for preschoolers.
