Obituary for Barbara D. Corriveau

Barbara Dorothy Corriveau, 88, passed away at Medilodge of Traverse City on Tuesday March 5, 2019. She was born to Edmond and Clara (Heron) Corriveau in Millersburg, Michigan. She graduated from Onaway High School in 1948 and attended County Normal to become a teacher. She later completed her teaching degree at Central Michigan University.

Teaching was Barbara’s passion and she especially enjoyed teaching Special Education. Often with her intense one-on-one attention the children could return to the regular classroom. She taught in the Saginaw area, the Thumb area, and retired from the Alpena area. Barbara also taught in South Korea for a period of time, enjoying learning the cultural differences and traveling in that area. She retired to Boyne City where she lived for many years.

Barbara is survived by sisters, Leo Coutts (Clayton) Ellsworth of Dunnellon, Florida and Helen Cryderman of Onaway; her sisters-in-law, Mary Corriveau of Anacortes, Washington and Virginia Corriveau of Farmington Hills. She was preceded in death by her mother, father, and two brothers, John and Peter Corriveau.

There will be a celebration of her life and a memorial mass at St. Paul’s Catholic Church in Onaway at 11:00 AM on Saturday June 8, 2019. Barb's final resting place will be in Millersburg at Riverside Cemetery. In lieu of flowers donation can be made to St. Paul’s Catholic Church or Hospice of Michigan Traverse City, 10850 East Traverse Hwy., Suite 1155, Traverse City, MI 49684.
