    Phil and I are very sad to hear of Barb’s passing. We enjoyed many years of camping with Barb at Southwoods and laughing at campfires. She will be missed, she was a wonderful person. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family. God Bless!

    My condolences to the entire Corwin family. I have many great memories of hanging out at the Corwin house. Mrs. Corwin was always very welcoming and a sweet lady. One of my memories of Mrs. Corwin is when she was cutting my hair and I asked her if she could cut it so my hair would turn out “thicker”. She looked at me like I was nuts and then nicely explained that was not possible. May God Bless.

    Barb and I were both residents of Legacy at Parklands until we both went into our own apartments. She sat across the dinner table from me and she always had a joke and a laugh that kept everyone in “stitches”. Her dog Bo was a welcome addition as he always looked for attention from everyone. Many evenings we, along with two other residents, would somehow manage to come together in a hallway by the elevator and chat for quite a while. I will miss Barbara but she will always give me a smile when I think of her.

    Sorry to hear of your loss. Barb was always active, helpful and well informed especially at Brasser PTA. You were always welcomed with a big smile. My prayers are with her family.

    Brian and I were Barb’s neighbor at Southwoods. We are so sorry to hear she has passed. We will miss her. Loved sitting on her deck with her as Mario and Bobo layed in the sun. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    My thougjhts and prayers are with the Corwin family. Mrs. Corwin was like a second Mother to me. I have a lot of very fond memories of her while I was growing up. I’ve known her my entire life since I was born… She turned me on to Shepards Pie and everytime I see it on a menu takes me back to those days. One time she gave me a wrapped Christmas present which I was very surprised… when I opened it it was a pair of my socks and other belongings I left at her house from sleep overs with Todd. She had a great sense of humor! I will miss you Barb…wishing peace and comfort to the family.

    Growing up, I remember seeing Barb and my Mom (Verna) chatting over coffee, sharing lots of laughs and talks of life. Barb was a great, funny lady. Our prayers and thoughts are with you.

    My Dear Mark, Todd and Cam. Do you remember all of the Christmas parties my Mom and Dad had? Your Mom and Dad were always there, and I remember all of the wonderful laughter that came from the holiday get-togethers ! Cam, do you remember pushing the baby stroller down Scott Lane with my sister Sandy, or was that another brother:)
    Your Mom is now in the same place my Mom is in, a peaceful place. May you always remember the smiles our parents had when they were together. You are in my thoughts and stay strong. Kindly Gail Reininger Giralico
