The family attended church at the Gilliam Baptist Church. Living on a farm in Gilliam, she and her 3 brothers were always up to some mischief.

Her friends remember her as strong-willed, faithful and a true-blue friend. She was married to Carl Edward Morrison in July 1969. Driven to succeed, she attended Nursing School in Boonville, MO and graduated with her LPN degree and enjoyed many years as an LPN in local nursing homes and at the Cooper County Hospital.

She took a cruise to Alaska with her son and his wife, road tripped with her daughter, Marsha to Mexico, Colorado, and a train ride to Colorado, then Kansas City with her family. Barbara visited her son in Texas with her daughter, Sherry several times and enjoyed the warm weather there. Branson was a favorite vacation spot of hers, enjoying the music shows and comedies there with Carl. She was also an avid quilt maker, enjoyed knitting and sewing, often teaching her friends to crochet. Barbara had a green thumb. Her house always included African violets, peonies, and roses. She enjoyed the quiet peacefulness of her back deck where she enjoyed time while taking care of her father at her home. Time with her kids, grandkids and great-grandkids, was a favorite past time for her and Carl. Always a caretaker, she could diagnose aliments and showed deep concern for anyone in her life.
