In memory of
Barbara C. Heath
Heath, Barbara C. RENSSELAERVILLE Barbara C. Heath, 93, passed away peacefully at her home on Monday, October 3, 2016. She was born in New York City to the late Avery and Dorothea Claflin. Barbara attended the New York Academy of Dramatic Arts and appeared in two films. She had a career as a photographer for the New York Daily News which ended when she married Randy Heath and raised their five daughters. Barbara's interests were many. She was a voracious reader, tennis player and world traveler. Her devotion to nature and love for animals was boundless. There was always an array of stray cats and dogs crossing the threshold of her home. Barbara also took great pride in her flower gardens, spending many hours beautifying them and sharing them with others on the garden tours. Barbara was a devout Catholic whose strong faith guided her through the many adversities she faced in life. She was a tireless volunteer to several organizations in Rensselaerville, including the Huyck Preserve, the Trinity Church and twenty years at the Rensselaerville Library. Her passion for family continued as she became a proud grandmother, known as Bibbi, to seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Barbara is survived by her daughters, Kristen Bologna (Charles Bologna), Susan Holmes (Virgil Weidman), Terry Heath (Stephen Marks) and Tracy Bensen (Gordon Bensen). In addition to Barbara's parents, she is predeceased by her brothers, Robert and John Claflin; Randy Heath; her husband of sixty-three years; and her daughter, Cathy Heath.
