She was born April 30, 1932, in a little log cabin in Jaroso, Colo., to Frank and Mary (Altolf) Barker. She met her husband and lifelong friend E.V. (Vern) Heinbaugh at Campion Academy in Loveland. They were married on March 30, 1952.
After their marriage, they moved to the Heinbaugh family dairy and grain farm in Ridgeview, S.D., where she raised five children and cooked for her family, visitors, neighbors, friends, hired help and in the public elementary school.
The family farm was sold in 1968 to make it possible for the children to have a Christian education. She started her employment for the Seventh-day Adventist educational system at Maplewood Academy in Hutchinson, Minn., in 1968 and continued her dedication to the church and the schools working in many facets until 1996, when she moved to Greeley.
