Barbara L. Wyman Obituary
Barbara L. Wyman nee Kuhn, age 90 of Oak Park; Born in Detroit Michigan July 13, 1928, passed away peacefully on September 11, 2018 surrounded by loving family. Beloved wife of Douglas J.; loving mother of David (Danita), Larry (the late Laura), Mark, Jim (Joy), Mary (Bruce Corson), Ann (Dale Amtower), Joe (Katy), John and Gerald (Krista) Wyman; cherished grandmother of Melissa, Alisha, Amanda, Chris, Dylan, Nick, Samantha, Daniel, Kathleen, Mila, Tesla, Terry, Sophie and Paul. And great-grandmother of 14; dear sister of Leo (Marlene), George (Betty) Kuhn and the late Bernard (Elide) and late John and late Kay Kuhn; fond aunt, great-aunt, godmother and friend of many. Fifty four years ago, Barbara, Doug and family moved to Oak Park and Ascension Parrish. She was a woman of deep faith and social justice, dedicating much of her life to different ministries in the Church and outside it, helping to create a more just and peaceful world. She was an early champion of the Christian Family Movement and the PADS program (Housing Forward). Among her amazing friends and parish community, she was known for her welcoming friendship, gentle strength and lovely smile. She would say her most important role was being a parent. She was a strong advocate for all children including those needing a loving home, many of whom lived at times with the Wyman family. Her greatest joy was her husband Doug, the love of her life, and their devoted partnership. Together they created an extraordinary example of the power of unconditional love. Barbara's family is deeply grateful for all the generous and loving friends and especially, her skilled and dedicated caregivers who accompanied her through her 15 year journey with Alzheimer's disease. Funeral Mass 9:45 am, Saturday September 22, at Ascension Church, 801 S. East Ave., Oak Park. Interment is private. In lieu of flowers, donations to (alz.org) or Housing Forward (housingforward.org) are appreciated. Funeral info: drechslerbrownwilliams.com or 708-383-3191
