About Barbara Eldridge (Culbertson) (Walden) Buckholder

After graduation from high school, Barbara went on to Pomona College, receiving her BA in 1935. She then studied accounting at UCLA for summer, and took some business courses at Sawyer’s Business School.

Barbara worked for Pomona College in the Alumni and President’s Offices, and then for an investment banking firm in Los Angeles for three years.

Barbara married Keith Walden in 1938 and they had two sons. When her sons were young, Barbara was a stay-at-home mom. In later years she did bookkeeping for her husband’s business, the Farmers Investment Company.

Barbara was always active in volunteer work, as an office manager for the Republican Party and a delegate for the party in Arizona. She also worked with the Tucson Medical Center Auxiliary, and was on the Board of Directors for the Medical Center.

After her 30-year marriage ended to Keith, Barbara married Robert Burkholder, a World War II veteran. At this time they lived in San Francisco, CA. Bob was interested in classic cars, and this interest led them on numerous trips to England and Australia.

After an eight-year bout with Alzheimer’s, Barbara lost Bob. She then moved to Green Valley, Arizona near her son Richard and brother Warren “Toops" Culbertson.
