Joy in Christ, a way of life

The Rev. Barbara M. Humphrey

Dear Friends,

I write with deep sadness to inform you of the death of the Rev. Barbara M. Humphrey on July 8, 2015. Barbara is survived by her beloved husband, Paul, children and grandchildren.

Barbara was ordained to the priesthood in 1983 by Bishop Robert Spears. She was a faithful servant of the Episcopal Church and served in the Diocese of Rochester as Dean of the Monroe District from 1991-1994; Rector of St. Mathias, East Rochester from 1985-1994; and as Associate Rector of Church of the Good Shepherd, Webster, from 1983-1985.  Barbara also served in various other ways in the diocese until her death. We give thanks for Barbara’s faithful service to the risen Christ through the Episcopal Church.

A memorial service is scheduled for Wednesday, July 15, 1 PM at St. John’s Episcopal Church 183 North Main Street, Canandaigua, NY 14424.

Condolences may be sent to the family at 5389 County Road #36, Honeoye, NY 14471. Please keep Paul and all of their family in your thoughts and prayers.

“May the souls of all the departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace”

In Christ our resurrection,


The Rt. Rev. Prince G. Singh
VIII Bishop in Rochester
