Barbara Ann Coman

Barbara Ann Dzielinski Coman, 82 passed peacefully in her home on June 30, 2022 after a prolonged illness. She is preceded in death by her parents, Henry and Genevieve Dzielinski, two sisters, Diane S. Morrissey and Gail Dzielinski, and her niece Laurie Morrissey Richmond.

 She was born on October 22, 1939 in Port Washington, LI, New York and lived on Long Island until her marriage in July 1960. Barbara attended Paul Schreiber High School in Port Washington. She was very athletic, both as a gymnast and cheerleader.  After high school Barbara worked as a secretary at the Navy Training Device center in Sands Point, NY

 

 Barbara met her husband to be, Bob, in Washington DC in 1957. They were married in 1960 after Bob returned from overseas with the US Air Force. They settled in Los Angeles, California where Bob attended college.  They moved to Connecticut in 1964 and after two years moved to Fort Worth Texas, then St James NY before finally settling in Savannah in 1974 with Grumman/Gulfstream Aerospace.

 

  Barbara worked as an executive secretary before returning to school to pursue a career in nursing. She graduated from Armstrong State University with a degree in Nursing and then worked at Memorial Medical Center until retirement.   

 

 Barbara was a member of the Community Bible Church in Savannah and participated in Bible Studies for many years. She always took comfort knowing that she will be with God in Heaven, free from pain and suffering, and reunited with family that predeceased her and those that will eventually follow her.

 

 Barbara had a passion for tennis, and was on the original Wilmington Island tennis team. She was also an outstanding artist and her paintings and princess dolls are world class. Her talents were legendary and her family and friends will have these classic treasures as a testimonial of her artistic skills forever.

 

 Above all, Barbara was a dedicated and loving wife and a devoted mother and grandmother. Her most treasured time was spent doting on, making gifts, and loving her four grandchildren.  There are no words to describe how much she will be missed.

 

 She is survived by her Husband of 62 years, Robert (Bob) Coman, a daughter, Pamela D. Gaudry (Dana), a son, Robert Alan Coman (Ann), four grandchildren, Ryan Elizabeth Szymula (Nick), Zoe Alise Coman, Savanna Gallup Walker (Ryan) Robert Jonathan Gallup (Abrianna), and one great-grandchild, Rowan D.

My heartfelt condolences go out to Pam, Dana and her kids, her brother Bobby and her Dad. The last time I saw Mrs. Coman was at Pam's office a number of years back. She was working and helping Pam as she opened her new office. She was just as beautiful and kind as I remember her when Pam & I were young and in high school. A beautiful lady inside and out, with her daughter following in her foot steps. Hugs to my sweet friend Pam until I see you in person. Much love, Pam

My husband, Bob & I were neighbors with Bob & Barbara at Pecan Park Resort in FL during her medical visits to Mayo. I know that they were put into our path for some reason and we were so honored to have spent time with them. She was so very kind, and I loved her attitude thru her treatments. Such a strong woman! I will forever remember the night we shared stories, wine & buntinis around a fire. Sending our thoughts & prayers to Bob & his family during this time.
