Barb was proud of her Swiss Heritage, which showed through her involvement as an actor and director of the Heidi Play, guide at the Chalet of the Golden Fleece, and her genealogy research. She was baptized and confirmed at the Swiss United Church of Christ in New Glarus, and was a member of the church choir and women's guild. Barb was devoted to her nieces and nephews.
