Born and raised in the Midwest, Barbara had lived on the East Coast, the Southwest, and the Pacific Northwest. A world traveler, first with Don, then with her boys, too, and later, even more travel with Don. Together they enjoyed annual tours and cruises, visiting destinations across North America and Europe, even reaching destinations in Asia and Africa. While home and family came first, Barbara remained active with her interests in art, education, antiques, travel, and especially as an avid quilter.
