Barbara was inducted into the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). She was once active with Shelby County Civil Defense. Barbara was a long time member of the Henton Church of God. Barbara enjoyed making flower arrangements, spending time with family, and dining out. She was an incredible mother to two daughters and a loving wife and grandmother.
