She was a military child, so she moved to several places but found her footing in Las Vegas Nevada where she met her soul mate R. Blair Hirzel and was married in 1987 and raised 3 wonderful children together.

Barbara had the privilege to travel more as Blair was in the military. She met countless friends that were added to her military family that started as a child with her father’s military service, which she cherished.

Dogs, oh she loved her dogs. She adopted several senior pugs that nobody else wanted; she had a sweet soul and lovely heart. She also loved to crochet and watch her reality television shows and the color pink.

Barbara had a few jobs as she moved from Base to Base with her family, but her main job was
taking care of the ones she loved.
