Camp saddened by recent passing of Barbara Miller

Camp Courageous was saddened by the recent passing of Camper, Barbara Ann Miller, 57, of Iowa City. Barbara attended camp 14 times, going back to 1988. She also had the opportunity to go on three trips with camp including Florida/Sea World in 2007, Turk & Caicos in 2008, and Chicago in 2009.  Barbara is the sister of Board Member Jan Short.  It has always been a joy hearing Jan and Phil visit about Barbara, and what a huge role she played in their family and to so many others. Barbara’s sense of humor, gentle smile, love of chocolate and zeal for life embodied who she was all her life. Her mother often said, “There is a saint among us.”  She was so right.  Barbara was a delight to all who knew her and will be dearly missed.
