Barbara was born on August 28, 1932 in Wadsworth, Texas to Murray and Mary Louise Seerden. Her childhood was challenging. Her father's work caused the family to move several times a year. She lived in twenty-eight states but still managed to be an A+, straight A student. Her life changed after graduating from high school in Hobbs, New Mexico. She enrolled in college at Eastern New Mexico at Portallas. During her first year in college, she was elected "Sun Princess" and represented her college at a football game in El Paso. She married while in college at Eastern New Mexico. From this union, one son and daughter were born; Ronald and Cathy. This marriage ended and she met and married David C. Stubblefield on June 2, 1962 in Arlington, Texas.

Barbara was working as a legal secretary when she met David who was a salesman for I.B.M. Corp. in Midland, Texas. They lived there for seven years until David's transfer to Cheyenne, Wyoming. While there, she became active selling cosmetics for a Dallas based company. She took on the task as Director of this company and won several awards. She held sales meetings and recruited ladies to sell cosmetics. She continued this work for seven years until they moved to San Antonio. She then became a Real Estate Broker and was very successful in this business. She continued this business until they retired and moved to Colorado City in January of 2005.
