Barbara Ellen Korte

KORTE, Barbara Ellen, (80), a long-time resident of the Brandon area, passed away on Wednesday, February 25, 2015 surrounded by her family at Melech Hospice House in Tampa, FL. Born January 4, 1935 in Normal, IL. Barbara met the love of her life as a teenager and married him July 17, 1954, celebrating 60 years last summer. They have four sons and moved to Brandon in 1972 where they established a business that still remains in the family. Barbara loved spending time with her family at their monthly Korte Family Fun Night that continues today, decorating for holidays, evening walks, traveling, playing cards, gardening, playing the piano, and according to her husband, just piddling around. She was always a busy hostess when entertaining friends and family, the last to sit and the first to leave the table. A member of First United Methodist Church of Brandon for over 40 years, Barbara loved the Lord and was an incredible wife and mother of great faith. She was active in the United Methodist Women's Group for many years. She is survived by her adoring husband, Donald Allen Korte; sons, David Korte (Sharon), Greg Korte (Lori), Bruce Korte (Lynne), Steve Korte; grandchildren, Teresa Bullard (Tony), Chris Korte (Laura), Beth Gray (Matt), Stephanie Korte, Katrina Korte, Kelly Cabina (Nick), Suzanne Korte, Mary Gray (David), Kayla Korte; 9 great-grandchildren; brother, William McQueen, and 2 nieces. Nearly all of whom live in Brandon, FL, and brought great joy to her all her life.
