She was raised and received her education in West Allis and graduated from Central High School. After completing high school, Barbara went to work for Allis Chalmers in West Allis as a stenographer. It was there that she met M. Edward "Ed" Krultz and they were married on May 6, 1967, at the Church of St. Gregory the Great in Milwaukee. They moved to Greenwood and farmed. Barbara also worked as an office clerk for Adult Development Services, first in Willard, and later in Greenwood. She later attended technical college in Marshfield, and earned a degree as a medical transcriptionist. She worked out of her home as a transcriptionist until retiring in 2012. Barbara had many interests, but especially enjoyed gardening, studying and reading about plants, going on crop tour rides with her husband, and genealogy.
