Barbara was born in Middletown, CT December 2, 1946. She grew up on a dairy farm in Cromwell, CT. Following high school, she attended Becker Jr. College, graduating with two different degrees in 1966 and 1986.

Her favorite destination was the island of Maui which she visited every year. She was also a 50-year member of the Connecticut Grange. More than anything, however, she enjoyed spending time and playing games with her grandchildren.
