Barbara Worman Obituary

Barbara Worman, 86, passed away peacefully on February 6, 2024 at Rossville Healthcare & Rehabilitation Center in Rossville, KS with her daughter and granddaughter by her side. Barbara was born on September 29, 1937 in Bremerton, Washington, to Charles and Dorothy (Heine) Bryant. Barbara graduated from Ellinwood High School in 1955 and attended St. John’s College in Winfield. She married Richard Worman on October 7, 1958 in Ellinwood. They were married 2 months shy of 55 years before Richard passed away in August of 2013. Barbara was a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Ellinwood, VFW Auxiliary and American Legion Auxiliary. She lived most of her life in Ellinwood, until moving to Wichita in 2019 and then to Lecompton, KS in November of 2021. She was a homemaker while her children were growing up and then she worked part-time at Gannaway Hardware. Barbara was very fond of children. She was a 4-H leader, Sunday School Teacher and youth bowling coach for many years. If it involved children, she was a part of it. Barbara and Richard enjoyed traveling with their local camping club after Richard retired and were able to attend many gatherings of Richard’s USS Idaho BattleShip group at various locations across the country. After moving to Lecompton, she was able to spend time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Whenever the little great grands were around, she lit up. She loved reading to and playing with them. She was happiest when one of them was on her lap or in the room! Survivors include sons, Robert (Marti) Worman, Bruce Worman, daughter, Ruth Amerine, 4 grandchildren, 5 great-grandchildren, sister, Phyllis Gannaway, brother Martin Bryant, nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, Richard Worman, her parents, brothers, Allen, Eldon and Phillip Bryant, sister-in-law, Teresa Bryant, son-in-law, Randall Amerine.
