Barbra's mother, Mae Redington, was born on January 4, 1905 in Iowa. Mae married Leonard and they had three daughters: Francis, Juanita, and Barbra.
Barbra was born in 1930 in Mason City, Iowa. Barbra was married for a short period of time in Mason City and had one son, Michael. Barbra, Michael, Mae, and Juanita moved to California about 1950. There, Barbra met Donald, they married, and lived in Alameda, California.
Barbra loved to play piano. She became active as one of Jehovah's Witnesses. Donald started the Eldridge Electric Company and was successful in his business ventures. The growing family needed more space and in 1966, they moved to Castro Valley, California where they raised five children: Darrell, Douglas, Rhonda, Teresa, and Richard. After most of the children had grown up and moved out, Barbra moved to Hayward, California in 1984.
Barbra passed away on April 18, 2012 in Oakland, California.
