Barbara was born October 5, 1934 in Toledo, Ohio to Olen V. and Agnes T. McDaniel. She graduated from Central Catholic High School in 1952.

Barbara married her husband Andy in 1953 and shortly after that they were stationed at Ellsworth AFB in South Dakota, where their daughters Kathy and Jeanne were born. In 1958 they were transferred to Vandenberg AFB where their daughter Pat and son Andy were born. Barbara and Andy moved to Lompoc in 1960 and began making many lifetime friends and memories.

Barbara was a life-time member of the Catholic Daughters of America for over 40 years and held many leadership positions within the group. Over the years, she was involved in other numerous community organizations including Catholic Charities, Women in Chamber, Campfire Girls, and was on the Lompoc Hospital Foundation which helped establish the Lompoc Valley Medical Center Convalescent Care facility. In 1989, Barbara was named Woman of the Year by the Lompoc Valley Chamber of Commerce.
