McCarthy, Barbara Haley (nee Hoppenjans)
October 24, 1947 – January 11, 2019
Age 71 of Eden Prairie, died peacefully and gracefully in Eden Prairie, Minnesota on January 11, 2019. Barbara passed away at home as she wanted, on her living room couch, surrounded by the sounds of her family, the light of a sunny winter morning coming in through the windows. Barbara was raised in Lakeside Park, Kentucky and preceded in death by her parents Robert and Elizabeth Hoppenjans. She is survived by her devoted husband Tim, sons Finn and Madigan Haley, daughter-in-law Magali Maitrejean, sister Nancy Greer, and brother Robert Hoppenjans. Barbara was a loving wife and mother who took great pride in making a home that was both welcoming and sheltering for all of her family and friends. Barbara was deeply interested in people and counted as friends not only those whom she had known for many years, like the Bundlie family, but also those with whom she interacted in small ways on a daily basis. She was a regular, smiling presence at Lili Salon and the Good Earth Restaurant in the Galleria. She will be missed by the many people whose lives she touched. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be given to the American Cancer Society. (Published in the Star Tribune on Jan. 18, 2019).
