Barbara (Buchta) Burwick was born on March 8th, 1948 in Dayton Hospital, in Dayton, Texas. She was a lifelong resident of the Dayton area, residing in the Eastgate community for most of her life.

Barbara was married to Charles Burwick Sr. and to Stewart Shipman. While married to Stewart, she was very proud to have helped raise his three children, Jolynn, Brandon, and Brady Shipman.
Barbara dedicated her life to being a fantastic and wonderful mother. Barbara was passionate about her Astros and Texans and when she wasn’t filling her shopping lists, she could be found in her recliner watching sports. Also, Barbara and her siblings were very close, they talked on the phone almost every day. She loved talking to her grandchildren as well, even if it was FaceTime or calls that really had her talking about it for days. Recently, she was a member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Liberty but had been a long-time parishioner at St Annes Catholic Church in Eastgate, Texas. For several years, she enjoyed being part of the Shepherds Club. We will miss her greatly.
Prior to her passing, Barbara worked at U.S. Steel in Baytown, U.S. Postal service in Dayton, and for Liberty County, where she worked as a permit clerk for many years until retirement in 2010.
