Barb grew up in the Ida Grove and Battle Creek area where she attended school.  On February 19, 1971, Barb married Joe Stan, Sr. and to this union two children were born Brenda and Joe, Jr. “Joey”. The couple later parted ways.

Barb enjoyed working as a CNA in the Odebolt Specialty Care Center until her health began to decline and she later became a resident.  She enjoyed listening to music, watching television, spending time with her family and had a soft spot for cats.

Barb was preceded in death by her parents Byrl and Stella Johnson; sisters Rosemary Lasko, Dorothy Kyle, Mattie Williams, Wilma Johnson, Lavon Marrow and Mony Marrow; brothers Richard Johnson, Edison Johnson and Lyle Marrow; niece Darla Johnson; nephew Doug Vitzoski; and brother-in-law Ronald Murr.
