After her father died in 1923, her mother moved the family to Beaver, Utah. Later, the family moved to Maplewood, New Jersey to live with her uncle. Barbara worked as an executive secretary in New York City before and after World War II. During World War II she was married to a pilot who was lost in the war. In 1951, she married Roy F.
