She was born October 23, 1931, in Eden, Idaho to Neil and Edna Whitney. She married her Hollister High School sweetheart Charlie R Shepherd on Aug. 25, 1949. Together they had five children. Barbara devoted her life to her husband and children. After retirement Barbara and her husband moved to Filer. They built a home. They enjoyed planting garden vegetables and fruit.

Her greatest pastime of all was being around her children and grandchildren.
