Barbara McClenaghan — Administration Manager

Barbara has had an interesting career, including working in the Oncology Department at the Dunedin Hospital. Working in a funeral home had always been something that appealed and when a role came up with Hopes it was a perfect fit.

Spending her workdays assisting people and having contact with the families is what Barbara enjoys most.  A natural people person she has provided many families with support and guidance.

She enjoys taking her dog for a walk, and is passionate about Dunedin. She likes spending time with those closest to her. Her favorite place in Dunedin is driving into town on the Northern motorway (preferably when it’s not raining) with the city in full view.  Barbara would have either ‘The Great Gig In the Sky’ (Pink Floyd) or ‘Funeral for a Friend’ (Elton John) playing at her funeral.
