At Stanford, she met and married her husband of forty-five years, Robert H. Volk. Settling in Rolling Hills, CA, they raised four children. The wife of a prominent Los Angeles lawyer and businessman, Barbara was adept at entertaining and very active in philanthropic endeavors, including raising funds for Children's Hospital Los Angeles, Banning House Museum, Marlborough School and the Bishop's School in La Jolla. She was active for many years in the Junior League of Los Angeles and the Bel Air Garden Club. Barbara is survived by her four children, Christopher, William, Lauren and Elisabeth, ten grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Private services will be held in both Los Gatos and Los Angeles.
