Barbara and her husband were married for 53 years.

She was a member of Annunciation Catholic Church in Altamonte Springs for over 40 years. She was an active member of the Council of Catholic Women and Saint Patrick's Circle through the church. She was an enthusiastic volunteer through that circle for their many charities. Nearest to her heart was the Learning Center of Apopka that served the children of migrant workers. At the church she also joined the Italian American Club which she served as President in 2003 (with not a bit of Italian in her!!). Barbara had volunteerism in her heart. She was always the home room mother, Brownie leader, Red Cross volunteer and surrogate mother to any of her children's friends who needed a mom at any point every now and then.
