In appearance, she is basically an older version of Lois. In the episode titled Family Goy, it is revealed she is a Jewish survivor of the Holocaust. She only changed her religion so she and Carter could gain access to country clubs. In the episode Running Mates, she is described as passive aggressive. Barbara Pewterschmidt is also the ex-wife of billionaire Ted Turner. She left Carter in "Welcome Back Carter" after learning he had an affair. However, she does eventually forgive him after deeming herself too old to remarry.
