Barbara Jean Keiser Hopkins was born on September 30, 1950, to Alma Lehi Keiser and Lois Mary Ridd Keiser in Salt Lake City, Utah. During her childhood she began to take piano lessons which led to a future as an award winning pianist. Barbara studied for two years at the University of Utah as a piano performance major and then transferred to Brigham Young University to continue her studies. One of her professors at BYU was Yoshie Akimoto Eldredge. Barbara studied piano with her privately, until Yoshie moved to Southern California. In 1972 Barbara decided to move to California to continue her studies with Yoshie. It was while in California, she met and married her husband, James Lewis Hopkins, M.D., on December 27, 1974. In 1996, Barbara's husband suffered a health issue which made her become the family's primary provider and caregiver. Despite many challenges in her life, Barbara's determination and faith helped her overcome many difficulties and to raise four children.
Barbara is a Daughter of Utah Pioneers and an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
