Barbara was predeceased by her parents, William and Edith Dales, her husband of 58 years, George Hackney and her great grandson, Sean Latham. Barbara passed away on July 6, 2020 after a very long and happy life and the celebration of 101 birthdays.

She was honored to serve in the United States Navy during World War II as an instructor in the Navy Corps School. Barbara had experience in public health, hospital and school nursing. She retired from the Long Beach Unified School District as Chief of Nursing Services in 1985. Barbara maintained her nursing license well into her 80's "just in case nurses were needed". Barbara was a loving wife and mother. She sewed school dresses for her daughters, was an excellent cook and was never happier than when she could enjoy a party with her family. Barbara made sure family life included camping trips in the family travel trailer, Girl Scout adventures and CSULB football and basketball games.
