She enjoyed going to Atlantic Beach every summer, reading, and watching Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune every night (she was a very good player). She was a charter member of the Wishing Well Village Garden Club and even served as president for a time. Later on she enjoyed going to the Cary Senior Center and headed up the Sewing Program there for several years. Both William and Barbara were avid members of ST. Michael’s the Archangel parrish in Cary for over 45 years.

Please send any donations to the Cary Senior Center and Transitions Hospice. The Harraghy family would like to offer our special thanks to Mom and Dad’s caregiver, Clover, who made all of our lives so much easier and Mom and Dad’s final days so peaceful.
