Barbara Ruth Showerman
Our beloved sister Barbara Ruth Showerman entered God’s Kingdom on January 23, 2023 after a nine-month battle with multiple health issues. She was 77. Barbara was under the care of Three Oaks Hospice in Bedford, TX.
Barbara was born to Harold and Irene Showerman on January 27, 1945. She graduated from Fowlerville High School in 1963. Barb worked as a Passenger Service Agent for American Airlines beginning in 1965; moving to the Dallas/Ft Worth, TX area in 1979 and retiring in 2001. She called Texas her home and had many life-long friends she considered family in Texas. Barb was an active member of St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Bedford, TX.
Barbara had a great passion for sewing and was an excellent seamstress. Because of her generous spirit in life, she gave many of her handmade items to others. She was always putting other people before herself and was truly a kind person to all. She was an avid reader, loved all animals and the Dallas Cowboys. Barbara was preceded in death by her parents and two nephews, Matthew and Chad Showerman. She is survived by siblings Julie (Gerry) Duva, Tom (Laurie) Showerman, Andy (Jane) Showerman, Cindy (Allen) Marsh and many nieces, nephews, cousins as well as her dear friends in Texas.
A service in Michigan will be held later this year with her final resting place in South Lyon, MI.
