She was born to the late Burl Bates and Edna Pearl Wagnon of Brownwood, Texas, on Jan. 9, 1941, in Brownwood, Texas.

She also received her Masters Degree in Counseling from Amberton University. She was married to the late Bill Huey on Sept. 18, 1971, and they lived together in Kaufman County, Texas.

She had a private practice and taught high school for one year in Big Lake, Texas.
Barbara attended and loved worshipping at her church, First Assembly of God in Kaufman, Texas. She loved to give and bless others, and was very generous. She supported many children through various organizations.
