Born at Chester Hospital in Chester, PA in 1948, she graduated from Claymont High School and remained a lifetime Claymont resident and member of the VFW. Barbara worked for General Motors, the Brandywine School District, and Shop Rite Food Market.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Harry and Harriet McNelly, her brother, Harry L. McNelly, and her husband, William (Bill) McGhee.

Her memory is survived by her fiancé, Bob Robinson, her sister, Millicent B. Robinson, her niece, Julie Basu (Samit), grandniece and nephew, Maya and Neil Basu, her puppies, Pokieman and Cody, and many beloved cousins, nieces, nephews, aunts and friends.

The family wishes to thank all of the nurses, doctors, and staff at Wilmington/Christiana Hospital, and Cadia Rehabilitation Center, Silverside Road in Wilmington, DE.

Friends may visit with the family on Thursday, July 21, 2016 from 5:00pm-7:00pm at the Gebhart Funeral Home, 3401 Philadelphia Pike, Claymont, DE, where a Funeral Service will begin at 7:00pm. Burial will be private.
