She graduated from Fortier High School in New Orleans in 1955, attended Lindenwood College in St. Charles, MO for two years and graduated from the University of Iowa. She married Neil Martin Anderson on June 11, 1960 in New Orleans and moved to Nashville, Tennessee where they raised their two children. Barbara was an active member of the Nashville community, serving as the Tennessee State President of the PEO Sisterhood from 1984-1985. Barbara was a Founding Member of the Nashville Hospital Hospitality House and also served on the Board of the Atlanta Hospital Hospitality House when she and Neil moved there in 1985.

Barbara was a proud member of the Georgia Society of Mayflower Descendants.

Barbara – or Bam as she was called by her family – loved Jesus, spoke her mind, and was the happiest person every day despite many physical illnesses. She loved spending time at their cabin on Lake Burton and on Madeline Island, Wisconsin at her family’s 110-year-old cottage. Bam was a fighter and is survived by her husband of 55 years, Neil; son, Keith Anderson, daughter Sally Anderson Rosenlund (Brad), former daughter-in-law Debbie Anderson, and grandchildren: Stacey Rosenlund Stephens (Patrick), Erin Rosenlund, Sarah Anderson and William Anderson.

The family thanks Betty Jones for her friendship and the great care she has provided.
