Born and raised in Beaumont, Barbara married Doyle Alexander and moved to Los Angeles, California where she worked as a ground stewardess for American Airlines and had the opportunity to meet famous celebrities and work with the public. They moved to the Dallas Metroplex in the early 1960s. Barbara worked for many years as an account manager in outside advertising sales and was a people person and absolutely loved getting to know people; she never met a stranger! She had tremendous faith, loved the Lord and was a member of Lavon Drive Baptist Church for decades–a loving and devoted mother and grandmother whom will be greatly missed. Her life revolved around spending time with her family and her little dog, Rusty.
