After graduating high school, Barbara attended Stratford Normal School and taught school in Brussels, Hensall and Ingersoll. Following the Second World War, she married Ross Anderson and together they operated the hardware store in Belgrave for 40 years. Barbara was actively involved in her community and church and enjoyed gardening, quilting, rug hooking, camping, and travel.
