She was a member of the PTA, and served as an Election Polling Official for her neighborhood Precinct for many years. Barbara was also involved in coordinating the first "Arts and Crafts Fair" of Albuquerque that was originated in the Old Town Area. She was actively involved in purebred dog obedience training since the early 1960's, breeding and exhibiting Belgian Sheepdogs, which she dearly loved, for many years. She held lifetime memberships in both the Rio Grande Kennel Club and Sandia Dog Obedience Club, serving as president of the Rio Grande Kennel Club for many years and in practically every other office and position in each organization over the past several decades.
