Barbara Miller Asher was grew up in Marshfield, Wisconsin, and graduated from Sophie Newcomb College (now a part of Tulane University) in New Orleans, Louisiana. After college, she married Norman Asher and moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where she became active in community and civic causes.

She served as President of the National Council of Jewish Women and Vice President of the United Way, Southern District.

In 1977, she was elected to serve on the Atlanta City Council, on which she served until her untimely death in 1995. In 1997, the City Council dedicated a statue of her on Marietta street in Downtown Atlanta, and renamed the area "Barbara Asher Square."
