AVIS DE DÉCÈS

Barbara Gorman

2 mai 193621 juin 2020

With a heavy heart, the family of Barbara Gorman (nee Buckley) announces her passing on Sunday, June 21, 2020. Barbara was preceded in death by her husband of 59 years, James Gorman. Barbara was born in West Brighton on May 2, 1936, graduated from Curtis High School and worked as a secretary for the International Nickel Co. for five years. She left the workforce to be a full-time homemaker, until 1975. Upon returning to work, Barbara finished her career where she started at International Nickel Co.. Barbara liked to read mystery books, solve crossword puzzles and work on her needlepoint. Her greatest joy was being with her family for Sunday dinners and holiday gatherings along with cruises and trips to Las Vegas with the love of her life, Jim. Barbara was known for her very big heart, welcoming family members who were sick into her home and taking care of them. This was exemplified after September 11th when she and Jim moved in and took care of their daughter Nancy and her two young sons for six months. Surviving are her children, Diane Svenningsen and her husband Ken of Mountain Lakes, NJ; Nancy Kumpel of Cornwall on the Hudson, NY; James Gorman and his wife Amy Beth of Staten Island, NY, and 7 grandchildren, Michael, Mark, Lauren, Greg, Carl, Kelly and Megan. Many broken hearts are left with Barbara's passing and even though she will be sorely missed, it lightens our hearts to think of her and dad dancing together in each other’s arms up in heaven. She is finally where she wants to be, back with her Jim. A gathering of family and friends will take place on Friday from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. at Harmon Funeral Home, 571 Forest Ave., Staten Island, NY 10310. A Mass of Christian burial will be held Saturday at 9:30 a.m. at Holy Family Church, 366 Watchogue Road, Staten Island NY 10314. Interment to follow at St. Peters Cemetery.

No farewell words were spoken
No time to say goodbye
You were gone before we knew it
And only God knows why

We were blessed to have such a loving, and easy friendship - the kind where no matter how much time had passed, we would always catch up without skipping a beat. We are so grateful to have you be such an important part of our lives, and will miss you. Until we meet again....

Rest in the peace of the Lord, dear Barbara!

Best friends forever,
Chip & Bill
