Barbara was born on March 31, 1931 in Long Branch, NJ, to Fredrick and Gladys (Grant) Schoeneberg. She briefly attended grade school in Edgartown before her family moved to Barnegat, N.J. Upon her graduation from high school, she enlisted in the Air Force as a first class airman. After her honorable discharge she moved to California and worked for Chevron until her retirement in 1979.
