Newspaper Clipping about Barbara CorlNovember 18, 1926 - February 18, 2015

My mother's name was Barbara Hershberger at the time she was in the Corps, in the last class of 1948. Her married name is Corl. My mother just passed away yesterday, February 18 at the age of 88 from Alzheimer's. In 1949, she traveled to Puerto Rico to volunteer as a nurse in the tiny mountain village of Castaner for two years, where she met my father, who was also a volunteer there. After their marriage, she worked for over 30 years as RN in Bremen Community Hospital in Bremen, Indiana. She took early retirement several years ago, but remained active at our local blood center and in our county Right-to-Life association.

I only learned of her enrollment in the Corps yesterday when I saw a newspaper clipping. I would like to hear from anyone who knew her.
