Nothing is known about Barbara's life before or as the outbreak began. It is unknown if she lived in or near Alexandria before the outbreak began.
Barbara is first seen at the house party that Douglas holds to introduce Rick's survivor group into the Community. She gossips with the other women of the Alexandria Safe-Zone that Spencer was homosexual like Eric and Aaron. She is seemingly friendly to Olivia and Michonne and urged Michonne to find someone to date, suggesting Heath as he was single.
Like the other Community residents, Barbara seems to block out the factor of the zombie crisis outside their walls. The nature of the party irritates Michonne, who lashes out at Barbara when the latter asks her what type of cake she would like for her to make.
Alexandria Safe-Zone ChaosEdit
Barbara, like many other residents, has not appeared for a while because of the Alexandria Safe-Zone chaos.
Alexandria Safe-Zone AftermathEdit
Barbara hasn't shown herself until Issue 90, where she is seen briefly in the background. Barbara was also seen in Issue 97 inside of the church on the front row with Abraham, Holly, and Spencer while Gabriel Stokes was asking God to keep Rick, Carl, Michonne, Andrea, and Glenn safe while they are in the Hilltop Colony.

Barbara and Olivia appear to be friends and are known to gossip a little, more recently about how Douglas Monroe was flirting with all the new, young, female survivors, such as Andrea. They are not seen together all the time, but still seem to have many things to chat and gossip about.
- "WORRIED?! This is what you worry about?!"
- —Michonne to Barbara.[src]
Michonne and Barbara seemed to have a good relationship at the welcome party, but when Barbara said she was worried about what to cook Michonne, it angered Michonne because they were worried about what food she would like when there are hundreds of walkers outside of the Alexandria Safe-Zone. Michonne left the party early and her and Barbara have never talked since.
