Barbara, an intelligent and spunky woman, was a proud member of the Pine Plains Fire Department for many years, and always eager to help anyone in need.  She happily shared her knowledge with anyone that she thought needed it, that is, unless NASCAR was on.  She was an avid fan that rarely missed "her" race.
