Westrud, Barbara
1931 - 2017
Barbara Elizabeth Westrud, 86, died peacefully December 3, 2017 at Mt Carmel East Hospital. Born and raised in Niagara Falls, NY, she was a residence of Columbus for 60 years. She is preceded in death by dear family members: husband Charles (1987), parents Lawrence and Esther (Van Ess) Corsten and sisters Mary Ann Costantino and Virginia Roach. She is loved and will be missed by her children, Nancy Werstiuk (Steve), Timothy and Thomas Westrud, all of Columbus and Christopher Westrud of Madison WI. As a young adult she moved to Washington DC where she met her husband of 30 years. She had a career which included working at a private law firm and the Federal Government before retiring to become a devoted caretaker for her husband when he became ill with MS. In later years she enjoyed working for Schottenstein's Dept. Store. She liked old movies (Rebecca), knitting, her church (St Phillips and St Mathias) and recalling funny stories. The family wishes to thank the staffs of Mother Angeline McCrory Manor, where she resided for the last 9 years and Mt Carmel East Hospital for the extensive care and compassion. The family has arranged a private Catholic ceremony and burial and thanks everyone for their support and prayers. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation to Mother Angeline McCrory Manor or The Red Cross in Barbara's name. Arrangements by EVANS FUNERAL HOME, 4171 E.
