Barbara worked in the grocery business as a Customer Service Manager at Kroger for many years. She was an excellent cook (famous for her hot sauce) and loved to collect a variety of cookbooks. She was creative outside the kitchen as well, creating floral arrangements and designing and making bracelets.
