The daughter of the late Melrose and Estelle Epley Conner, she was born in Rutherford County, North Carolina on April 06, 1937. She was preceded in death by her husband, Floyd Wilson.

Barbara enjoyed playing the piano, was an avid gardener, working with flowers, and had a special place in her heart for animals, especially wild and domesticated birds.
