Barbara Estella Hause Prowant, 86, of Wellsboro, left the life she loved here on earth to be with her Lord and Savior in Heaven on Jan. 4, 2017.
She was born Sept. 12, 1930, a daughter of the late Willis and Pauline (Hoffman) Hause. She was married for 66 years to John J. Prowant who survives.
Barbara attended First Christian Church of Haines City when living as a snowbird at Lake Region Village in Florida and Whitneyville United Methodist Church when in Wellsboro.
Anyone who knew Barbara became her friend. She loved to share her life with others and was always baking wonderful goodies for her family and friends. She was also a "hugger". Her love of music filled her heart with joy as she had led many choirs, played the saxaphone, organ and keyboard, and was herself in many choirs and singing groups, "Glorified" where she ministered in churches and nursing homes. She loved making people happy.
She will be greatly missed by all who knew her and her memory will always be in our hearts.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by four children, Cynthia Prowant Hampton, John Prowant Jr., Laurie Prowant Derr and Thomas Prowant; nine grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; two sisters and one brother.
A celebration memorial service will be held at a later date in Pennsylvania.
