She has two children and three step children who all live in the area. The two youngest, Tommy and Angie, love to hear Grandma's stories about working at an asylum. To them, these stories seem like bigger fantasies than anything at the cinema. Barbara believes her time spent at Danvers State Hospital has helped her immensely in her current job.
