What I remember most about Aunt Bobbie is her warmth, her faith and her kindness. Her hugs warmed your heart, made you feel loved and accepted no matter who you were. Her steadfast faith was inspiring! Will always remember her love!!!

Oh, Grandma Bobbi, I have so many wonderful memories I could share. A couple of my favorites. Getting a phone call at work and being invited for lunch many times. And my best memory was coming home from a weeks vacation after she’d watched the kids for us, and finding she had reorganized my entire kitchen. ☺️😂 She was always so kind and generous and thoughtful and loving..Our family was truly blessed to have known her. Hugs to Dee and Jim and Chris and the whole family.

Words can’t express what this amazing woman meant to me. She was an Angel for all. Her heart out measured anyone’s and her love even more. She made all those that came into her home feel like family and I was one of those people lucky enough to receive her love. My deepest sympathies to all her girls and all their children . RIP mom. Say hi to Dr Paul for me.🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

I will always remember Mrs T as a loving Mother and wife. Always had a four course dinner and shared the leftovers (Judi and I would love to stop by around that time lol) I think I spent more time at your house then mine. She was generous and kind. I will never forget her. Rest In Peace.

With my deepest sympathies, I extend my condolences to the Turner Family for the loss of your mother.

Dee and Family,

I'm sorry to hear this and pray for all of you in the days to come.
The earth has lost a beautiful soul. Your Mom was by far the sweetest person I have ever met. She welcomed ALL of us extra teenage bodies in her home as if we belonged there.
So many great memories. Thank you for sharing her with us.
Much, much love!
Jamie
