Barbara A. Whidden Chatham, 76, of Boca Grande, died on Wednesday, March 21, 2012.
One of the island’s daughters passed away late Wednesday, March 21. She was 76 and was well-loved in Boca Grande.
Barbara Ann (Whidden) Chatham was the daughter of Sam and Leslie Whidden, born in 1935. Her surviving children include a son, Capt. Dave Chatham (Jill) of Boca Grande and a daughter, Jane Allen. Her sister, Isabelle, also survives her.
Christine Minshall Haynes, 92, passed away quietly on Monday, Jan. 9, 2012, surrounded by all of her children, at her home in Boca Grande.
This was as it should be. Recently asked her preference regarding her obituary, she said that she wanted it to state, simply, “She be gone...” This is classic Chris. However, dissuaded from this course by friends and family, who were convinced that a mere three words would not suffice:
Jane E. Michael of Boca Grande, and formerly of Marion, OH passed away on Dec. 23, 2011, after a brief illness. She was 87-years-old.
