Barbara was born on August 21, 1941 in Valley Stream, New York to the late Vincent and Adelaide (Nilsen) Donaruma.

She was a BA graduate of Davis & Elkins College, where she was an active member of Phi Mu. She later received a Masters of Education from Central Connecticut State University. Barbara was a teacher at the Harwinton Consolidated School for 23 years until her retirement in 2002, when she became a private educational tutor and author of several children’s books.
