Life story

Barbara L. (Schmelzle) McCall, 61, formerly of Niagara Falls, NY, passed away on Wednesday, May 20, 2020 at St. Vincent Hospital in Millbury, MA, following complications from the coronavirus.

Barbara was a graduate of Niagara Wheatfield High School and Nichols College. She was a friend and mother to so many, even to one’s that needed a place to call home. One of her greatest joys was spending time with her children and grandchildren. Barbara was an active NRA and USA archery instructor, teaching many the sport. We will all miss her cheery smile and loving friendship.

Barbara is survived by her father, Lloyd Schmelzle; husband, Charles Harris; children, Matt (Christina) McCall, Becky (Ben) Seguin, Josh Harris, Heather (Jacob) Harris and Jonathan (Tiffany) Harris; grandchildren, Tyler, Corey, Aidan, Chelsea, Owen, Ella, Drake and Daphne; sisters, Dianne (late Tony) Rosh and Roxanne (Duane) Frederick; brother, Tim (Mona) Schmelzle and several nieces, nephews and cousins. She was predeceased by her mother, Kathryn "Lillian" (Schmouder) Schmelzle.
