Barbara Rickles is a former actress, but she is famous for being the late actor Don Rickles's wife. The pair celebrated the golden jubilee of their marriage. Unfortunately, her husband died at the age of 90 due to kidney failure in April 2017 after a week of celebrating their 52nd marriage anniversary.
Barbara Rickles met Don Rickles for the first after she was selected as the secretary for him. After working together, they started developing feelings for each other and went out on a few dates before admitting it. After some years of relationship, they got married on March 14, 1965.
However, their relationship took a sad ending after Don Rickles died in April 2017 due to kidney failure. He passed away just after a week of celebrating their 52nd wedding anniversary. Also, he took to his Twitter post to wish his wife a happy anniversary.
Together they share two kids: Larry and Mindy. She is also the grandmother to Ethan and Harrison from her daughter Mindy's marriage with Ed Mann (well-renowned Jazz musician).
Before getting married, she used to do some administrative works, including a personal assistant to her husband.
Apart from this, she has also been featured in some of the short-lived TV shows, such as Don's documentary, My Life on the D-list, Mr. Warmth: The Rickles Project, and George Burns Celebrated 80 Years in Shoe Business.
Barbara Rickles, who worked as a Personal assistant to her late husband for more than three decades and also has some acting credits, has earned a decent amount. However, her exact net worth is missing, as she has never mentioned it.
But her late husband, who passed away in 2017, left her with $30 million worth of fortune, which he made from his acting career.
Once Barbara escaped death when two vehicles crashed along the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. She was driving a 2014 BMW 740LI. A 1999 International 4900 stopped on the right side of the highway, but surprisingly, it stuck the right side of Rickles' car. Well, she got out with minor damage to her car.
