RICHMAN, BARBARA DeLYNN: On Friday, May 4, 2018. Beloved wife of the late Howard Richman and adored by her children and grandchildren: Gary Richman and Gail Wood of Chapel Hill, NC and children Michael (Portland, OR) and Elise (Washington, DC); Ann Richman and Mark Kelman of Palo Alto, CA and sons Nick (Redwood City, CA) and Jake (Palo Alto, CA); and John Richman of Kigali, Rwanda and daughters Eliza (Kigali, Rwanda) and Tess (Washington, DC). She is also survived by cherished nieces Harriet Baum and her husband Raymond, Anne Fontanesi, Gwen Gilbert and her husband Doug Toews and nephew Alan Davidson and wife Nance. Barbara was born in Morgantown, WV in 1926 but was a fervent Pittsburgher for more than 70 years. She attended Ohio State University and in later years graduated from the University of Pittsburgh and went on to earn a Masters in Social Work from Pitt. She was a loving and caring mother and devoted to her six grandchildren to whom she wrote creatively decorated letters that are still treasured memories of their childhoods. She was an accomplished quilter; her hand-sewn original designs are now beautifully gracing the beds of her children, nieces and nephews, grandchildren and grandnieces and grandnephews across the country. Services at Ralph Schugar Chapel, Inc., 5509 Centre Avenue, Shadyside on Monday, May 7, 2018 at 3 PM. Visitation one hour prior to services, (2 - 3 PM). Interment West View Cemetery of Rodef Shalom Congregation. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Carnegie Museum of Art, 4400 Forbes Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15213.
