In her retirement, she began taking trips with Elderhostel Travel Tours, but managed to always extend her trips beyond the scheduled tour dates. She managed to travel to the ‘not so well traveled’ parts of the world to learn about culture and experience sites many have not seen. Trips to places like Puru, Guam, Hungary, Turkey, Tanzania, Cambodia & Thailand, as many other places were a big part of who Barbara was in life.

Survivors include her children: Roger (Ilene) Gault, Bruce (Carol) Gault, Craig (Carol) Gault; 7 grandchildren; and 12 great grandchildren. She is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; her sister and all her in laws.
