God is getting a big hug from Bobbi!! She was an awesome counselor at VCHS & really cared for each student. As our daughter Steffie was going into heart surgery, Bobbi was the first one on the phone to pray with her & then welcome her back to school. Blessings & Love to her family. The Lucchesi family

Mrs. Hoekstra was the type of person that saw the good in everybody. I would usually never right a message for something like this but felt compelled to do it because she really was a genuine and honest soul. I shed real tears of joy knowing she is in heaven! Because if she doesnt make it in nobody will! May God Bless the Hoekstra Family thru this hard time remember always, what the devil intends for evil God uses for good.

Bobbie was one of those very special people that every so often cross our paths. After looking at all the photos it is apparent that she enjoyed all those special moments with her friends and family. She will be missed and may you find peace and comfort in all your happy memories with her.

Bobbi was an incredibly joyful and godly woman. It was an honor to know her and a blessing to have her as a member of Grace Chapel Castle Rock.

One of the most genuinely kind and God-fearing people I have had the pleasure of knowing in my life. She has been a blessing to so many! The world is poorer for having lost her. The heavenly choir are singing as a saint has come home!
