Barbara attended the Fort Worth Public Schools and was a 1952 graduate of the historic I.M. Terrell High School. After graduating from high school, she pursued a career in the field of nursing, and worked for a hospital in Houston, Texas for many years.

She cared for many, but became like family to the William & Lise Cook Family, where she was a caregiver for over 20 years.

After retirement, her hobbies included hanging out with her baby sister, Lila Day, other family members, playing bingo, watching TV, and eating BBQ ribs.

 Her infectious smile and warm heart will forever live in the hearts of those whom she loved.
