Lombardi and The Wives

Vince Lombardi believed that behind every great football player was a great woman. Evidence of his philosophy was provided by these gorgeous mink stoles that the Packers Hall of Fame coach gave to each of the players’ wives (or significant “other”) after the Packers' 1961 NFL Championship victory. This photo was featured in a November 1962 issue of LIFE Magazine with the coach and the wives and girlfriends showing off their new gifts.

I just purchased the mink given to Jerry Kramer's wife at the time, Barbara, at the Super Bowl NFL auction. It included a 16x20 print of this photo. Does anyone know which lady in this photo is/was Barbara Kramer? Thanks
