I was blessed to have met this wonderful, bubbly lady on the SSHF with her father, Max. Second time at the Field of Honor Celebration. Sending lots of love and hugs your way. I could see through the years on FB how truly loved she was. God Speed Bobbie.

Bobbie was my neighbor for 16 years. We had a lot of fun raising our kids together. She treated my kids like her own. During her illness she never lost hope that she would get well again. She had an infectious laugh and got a kick out of things. RIP dear friend. See you on the other side…

You ask for a memory, I have many, but what comes to mind first is her smile and of course what comes next is her laugh. When Bobbie was laughing you couldn’t help but laugh along. Time spent with Bobbie just made me feel happy. I think she did that for most people she encountered. If you were the check-in person at the desk, the waitress at a frequented restaurant, the beverage girl on the golf course, she had to know your name, it was important to her to address you that way. She took notice of the people around her, I think we could all learn a lesson there. I asked my husband Gerry for his memory, of course his is from golfing. Bobbie would always walk up to the tee with two balls in hand. She would place the first ball behind her on the ground and the other on on the tee. She was always ready to take that second shot if necessary. Gerry said it just made him smile every time.
I know I’m a better person for having met Bobbie and so sad that the time has been cut short. So all I can say is “See You On The Other Side. Bobbie”
My husband and I want to extend our deepest sympathy to John and the rest of the family. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry to hear of Bobbie’s passing. I remember her from high school so many years ago. She was a very nice young lady and I am sure she stayed that way all the time she was here on earth. My condolences to her family and friends.
