Barbara Cowne


Barbara Cowne, 64, of Safety Harbor in Florida passed away on July 25th.

The funeral service will be held at 10:30am on July 31st at Espiritu Santo Catholic Church.  Father Anthony Ustick of Espiritu Santo will be officiating.  Visitation will be held from 6-8pm on July 30th at Veterans Funeral Care.  Burial will follow the funeral at Cavalry Catholic Cemetery.

Barbara was born in Sanford, Maine on February 19th, 1956.  She graduated from Sanford High School and continued on to receive a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from the University of Southern Maine.

Barbara was married to C. Thomas Cowne on April 15th, 2000.  They were married 20 years.

Barbara worked as a Nurse for various health organizations over the course of nearly 30 years.  She went on to work with Catholic Charities as an ultrasound nurse at the pregnancy centers in the diocese of St. Petersburg, Florida.  Barbara’s work with the pregnancy centers allowed her to act on her very strong right to life beliefs.

She was a gifted guitarist, song writer, and singer of Christian music and recorded two CDs of her own creation.  Barbara has a few of her songs uploaded to YouTube under Barbara Cowne Music.  Her songs can also be found on various other internet sites such as Napster, Spotify, and iTunes.

Barbara was a loving, dedicated wife and mother.  She loved to record music with her husband during her spare time.  Spending quality time with her children and grandchildren was very precious to her.

Barbara is survived by her husband, three children, and eight grandchildren.
