Barbara loved playing Bridge with her group she met with once a month. She also loved fishing, though her style of fishing consisted of letting the line float in the water while she enjoyed a book on the pontoon. Earlier in life, she loved to play piano. She was also involved in her church and her faith was very important to her. Most importantly, she loved her family and her family loved her.
