Over the years, she served faithfully in the Hollansburg Ladderettes, Hollansburg Cemetery Board, Hollansburg Sesquicentennial Committee and would often help at the Pot Pie dinners at Hollansburg American Legion. When she was younger, Barbara enjoyed collecting antiques and working in her flowerbeds and mowing. She and Gene would often enjoy a meal at Sam's Place.
