SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
Barbara Ann (Thompson) Gorman born March 9, 1939 in Santa Ana, California to Walter Marshall Thompson and Anna Mae (Hendrix) Thompson. Barbara went to be
with the Lord on September 3, 2016 in Sanger, Texas.
Barbara married Daniel Drake Gorman, Sr. on June 24, 1961 in San Bernardino, California. They were married nearly 55 years as Dan preceded her in death on May 20, 2016. In 1968 they moved to San Clemente, California where they raised their three children: Daniel Drake Gorman, Jr., Dana Gorman Stephens, and Christie Gorman McClary.
Barbara enjoyed her five grandkids, being actively involved in San Clemente Presbyterian church, San Clemente Garden Club, and playing with her Canasta group.
After relocating to Texas nine years ago, Barbara enjoyed meeting new friends in her neighborhood and church, gardening, and riding horses.
Barbara’s trust in the Lord shone through her radiant smile as she gracefully navigated through the challenges of ovarian cancer. She had a great desire for her family and friends to know how much she has loved and appreciated them.
