Barbara A. Ewing, 94, died peacefully Wednesday, May 13 at Bickford of Champaign.

 

Graveside services will be held at Roselawn Cemetery Friday, May 22, with pastor Danny Schaffner officiating. Morgan Memorial Home, Savoy is assisting the family.

 

Barbara was born March 28, 1926 in Vermilion County, the daughter of Dewey G. and Anna Sanford Dearing.  She married Richard Ewing on February 19, 1955 in Champaign.  He preceded her in death on July 23, 2010.

 

Survivors include her sister Ruth (David) Beliles of Sarasota Fl; daughter Nancy (Blake) Hubert of Champaign; son Tom (Lisa) Ewing of Seymour; son Rick of Chicago; five grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

 

She was preceded in death by her parents; brother D.G. Dearing; and granddaughter Suzzanna Hubert.

 

After graduating from St. John’s School of Nursing in Springfield, Barbara worked as an R.N. in pediatrics at Christie Clinic.  She paused in her career to raise her children, then returned to Christie as Dr. Joseph Zalar’s nurse, where she worked until retirement.  She was an excellent seamstress and her needlepoint and counted cross stitch work decorate the homes of friends and family.

 

Her devotion to her family was amazing and she will be sorely missed by all who loved her.

 

The family would like to say a special thanks to the staff of Bickford of Champaign for their excellent and compassionate care.

 

Memorials can be made to First Christian Church of Champaign.
