Barb was born February 11, 1947 in Wayne, NE, the daughter of Lloyd and Marilou (Cook) McQuistan.  She graduated from Wakefield High School in 1965.  After moving to California, Barb met Joe and the couple eloped to Las Vegas on April 6, 1970.  To this union, two sons were born. 

Barb and Joe operated the Feed Bunk for many years and Barb worked as the head cook for Pender Public Schools and the Pender Community Hospital. She enjoyed cooking, baking, playing BINGO and word finds, but her greatest love was spending time with her grandchildren and attending their activities.  She was a member of the Eastern Star.
