Barbara retired from the Human Resources department at Baptist Hospital in Pensacola. While working she obtained her bachelor’s degree and was always proud of higher education. She was able to see her children and grandchildren all obtain degrees.
After retirement she put all her efforts into genealogy research. She was exceptionally proud of establishing her Irish lineage. She was also able to document her descendant's ability to prove Mayflower lineage. She spent numerous hours of volunteer work helping others trace their roots at various libraries and through private research.
At Barbara's request there will be no services and her ashes will be later interred at Serenity Gardens in Milton.
