Barbara was a committed Catholic and joined the Dominican Sisters immediately after High School. After 18 months, she left the convent, returning to Champaign and married John Matheny, who died after a lengthy battle with cancer. She later married James Rohr at Holy Cross Catholic Church on Sept. 17, 1977. Jim died on July 24, 2022.

She is preceded in death by brothers-in-law, Jay Hettinger and James Gilroy.

Barbara and Jim were long time members of both St. Boniface and St. Matthews Catholic Churches.  She was an avid collector of both teddy bears and roosters and was locally famous for her large collection of nativity scenes.
