Barbara B. Cummings of Orchard Park died Thursday (Sept. 21, 2000) in Mercy Hospital after a brief illness. She was 80.
Born Barbara Borecky in Buffalo, she was a 1938 graduate of Riverside High School and worked as a buyer for the Sample department store on Hertel Avenue before her marriage to Gaylord T. Cummings in 1949.
They resided in the Buffalo area until 1987, when they relocated to Charlotte, N.C., and later to Bradenton, Fla. They returned to the Buffalo area last year to be closer to family.
Mrs. Cummings enjoyed dancing, bowling, fishing and boating.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by a son, Craig G. of Colden; two daughters, Alyson of Portland, Maine, and Linda C. Mara of Aurora, Colo.; and two grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday in Lombardo Funeral Chapel, 3060 Abbott Road, Orchard Park.
