McShane, Barbara Corines August 6, 1949 - February 20, 2024

Barbara Corines McShane, born on August 6, 1949, in Bronx, NY, departed this world surrounded by the love of her family and friends.

Barbara is survived by her beloved husband, Owen Patrick, for whom she was married to for 47 years. They shared a beautiful life together, and are absolutely adored by their children, Owen Michael (Elizabeth Casey) and Katherine (Owen Christensen). The foundation they built for their family shines through in the remarkable bond their children share. She welcomed and loved Elizabeth and Owen, like her own, and the family enjoyed years of wonderful memories. Born to Stella and Peter Corines (both deceased), Barbara loved and cherished her sister, Karen, and was like a sister to her McShane brother in-laws, John (previously deceased), Joseph and Thomas Aquinas (Kitley). She was a favorite to her nieces and nephews, Alexis (previously deceased), Brooke, Maxwell, Sarah and John. She adored her cousin, George (Sallie), always reminiscing about their childhood growing up together. Her presence will be deeply missed by all who were fortunate enough to know her.

Upon graduating from Hunter College, Barbara enjoyed a successful career in the retail industry, making her mark at Bloomingdale’s and Tiffany & Co. Her impeccable taste shone through in all her endeavors.

Beyond her professional achievements, Barbara was renowned for her culinary prowess, delighting her loved ones with her famously delicious dishes and baked treats. Her annual Christmas luncheon was a beloved tradition, and Barbara was the glue that held her circle of lifelong friends together.

Described as smart, tenacious, beautiful, and feisty, Barbara brought light and vitality wherever she went. Her fashion sense, adventurous spirit and love for travel, music, performing arts and Parisian culture leaves an indelible mark on all who knew her.

Though Barbara may have left this world, she will live on in the hearts of all who were touched by her remarkable spirit. May our beloved Babs rest in peace.
