Barbara graduated from a high school in the Milwaukee area and continued her education by attending UW-Madison, where she began her nursing education and was affiliated with the Chi Omega sorority.

She was a member of the Women’s Association of the Daughters of Isabella and St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Beaver Dam. She was also a Girl Scout troop leader and Boy Scout Den Mother.
Barb’s focus in life was family. More than anything, she loved raising her three children and playing outdoors. She loved water sports and introduced her family to boating, water skiing, sailing and swimming. She enjoyed camping with her family and dancing with her husband, Marty.
