Barbara was born on March 14, 1933 in Durham, North Carolina, one of seven children. Barbara was an active woman always busy raising five children. She had many talents: painting, drawing, sewing, needlework, cooking, and baking. Growing up we were always busy helping Mom and Dad with the garden, canning and freezing vegetables and fruits. Barbara could do anything she wanted. Barbara loved flowers, she and Dad always had many beds of flowers. Barbara and Ben loved to go camping, traveling from Pennsylvania to the Florida Keys. She especially loved the Outer Banks and Tennessee areas. Our mom loved Christmas and enjoyed decorating her home for the season.
