Bobbie’s greatest legacy and greatest joy was her family. A devoted wife, a loving and caring mom, and a fun and special grandma. She made every holiday special for us all. She inspired and loved each and every one of us. She was always there for us no matter where our journey took us. She was a safe harbor in all our lives. She showed us what a God-fearing woman looked like. Every memory she is in is a good memory. She made you feel peace in the middle of turmoil. She always showed love and patience when needed most. She was such a huge light in this world. It is an honor and a blessing to have known this beautiful woman. Her great grandchildren will know their Gramma – Gramma through the stories they will be told, memories that will be shared and pictures that will be shown. They will all know they were loved and cherished by their wonderful Gramma – Gramma.
