In 1966, Barb married John Wilbur. From this marriage came 3 children, Jeanna, Jeff, and Jen. In March of 1985, she married Burryl Campbell. Burryl and Barb purchased a house in Hartley, Iowa in 1993 and that is where she resided until her death.
Barb enjoyed many things through the years. Some of her favorites were crafting. She loved to make anything and everything. She crocheted, created projects on plastic canvas, painted ceramics, collected stamps, sewed, made candles, scrapbooked, collected Elvis memorabilia and so much more. In her later years when crafting became difficult, Barb found the internet. She took her tablet with her everywhere.
