Barbara Bone Corrin August 16, 1925 to April 1, 2012
Barbara Bone Corrin, age 86, of Pleasanton, passed away peacefully in her sleep April 1, 2012, with her family at her bedside. She is survived by her husband of 59 years, Bill Corrin, sons Bill (Jr.) Corrin of Long Beach and Gary Corrin of Toronto and daughters Janet (Gary) Sears of Pleasanton and Lyn (Terry) Aaker of Long Beach. She is also survived by two sisters, four grandchildren, and nine nephews and nieces. The Corrin family moved from Salinas to Pleasanton in 1969. The center of their new life was the Pleasanton Presbyterian Church and its social activities. Barbara taught for fourteen years at Alisal School and was always thrilled when former students and parents recognized her. While in her 60s she took tap dancing and piano lessons, loved playing tennis and bridge, and was well known for her award-winning pies and jams. After her 1986 retirement, Barbara volunteered at Alisal and Mohr Schools, where Janet was teaching. She also enjoyed her Community Bible Study group, practicing Jin Shin Jyutsu Japanese healing arts, volunteering at ValleyCare Hospital, and performing at piano workshops. Her dear friendships with water exercise classmates brought her particular joy. Please join us for a Celebration of Life service to be held at CenterPointe Presbyterian Church, 3410 Cornerstone Ct., Pleasanton, on April 21, 2012, at 2:00 p.m. with a reception immediately following. In lieu of flowers, Barbara’s family has requested that donations be made to Hope Hospice.
