Barbara was born on February 24, 1945 in Brooklyn, NY. She was the second of three children to Ben and Rose Kramer. She attended Tilden High School, went on to graduate from Barnard College and subsequently became a licensed clinical social worker.

Barbara was a wonderfully kind and compassionate person, often putting the needs of others before herself, and was always willing to listen and offer advice. She loved spending time with family and friends, especially her grandchildren, and working in her garden, which was her passion. She loved reading, mysteries, classical music, antiquing, tag sales, pottery and chocolate, and was an expert in knitting and crocheting.
