Dear Penny and Brad,
I had the pleasure of working with your Mom at the E.C.C. She was a delightful and loving person. She will be missed dearly. I’m sure she and Mrs. Judy Wolfenbarger are laughing and sharing memories about the E.C.C.

Sincerely,

Susan Barker Forbes

Bobbie Parker affected many lives, particularly young lives, during her time on this earth. Her selfless, loyal dedication to children and her demonstrated love for others were always evident. Bobbie never had an unkind word and was always a gracious & humble Christian lady. Condolences and prayers are offered for the peace of God at this time of loss. Bobbie's life and work reflected the strength of her spirit and the surety of her Salvation. Pennye is so much like her and our prayers especially are offered for her & John, brothers Chan and Brad and families.
