Barbara Ann Constantine, age 67, of Pioche, Nevada, passed away after a battle with cancer Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2016, in her home in Pioche. She was born on March 15, 1949, in Waterloo, Iowa. Her career included moving to Las Vegas, Nevada, and working for the Del Webb Corporation as an executive secretary to the president until retirement, at which time she relocated with her husband, Kenzie, to Pioche, Nevada, and became actively involved in the Chamber of Commerce there.
She was preceded in death by her father, Carroll Beane, and brother, Dan Beane.
She is survived by her husband, Kenzie Constantine of Pioche, Nevada; her mother, Bernadine Beane of Caliente, Nevada; her step-children, Dawn Ward of Las Vegas, Jamie Detrano of Lawrence, Kansas, and Travis Constantine of Las Vegas, and their spouses. She is also survived by six loving grandchildren, Kyle, Matthew, and Jadyn Ward, and Robbie, Nick, and Joseph Detrano, as well as cousins and relatives in Iowa. Barbara was a generous, kind, and loving wife, daughter, grandmother, and friend who was always willing to help in any way she could. She had many talents including sewing, upholstery, doll making, ceramics, and baking. Her grandkids insist she made the best sugar cookies they ever tasted.
A memorial service has been scheduled for Barbara at Holy Child Catholic Church on Culverwell St. in Caliente, Nevada, on Saturday, Nov. 12, 2016 at 11 a.m. Arrangements were handled by Southern Nevada Mortuary. Online condolences can be made at www.snmortuary.com
