Bobby White Rollins, born in February 1935, went to be with her Lord and Savior on January 15, 2020. She was born in Damascus, AL to Gid and Gurtha White, the oldest of 4 children, and graduated from Neal High School in Brewton, AL. She met and married Jay Rollins in 1953, and began her life as a Naval officer’s wife. Her travels took her far beyond the small town of Damascus, to places she never dreamed of living. She was a devoted daughter, sister, wife, mother, and friend, but her most beloved title was that of “Mawmaw”, and she wore it well. She was predeceased by her mother and father, her endearing husband of 62 years, and a sister-in-love Dot White. She will forever be missed by her four sons: Ken (Marcia), Bob (Rhonda), Pat (Patsy) and T.J. (Trish); nine grandchildren: Kevin (Tara), Kelli, Scott (Mariah), Stephanie (Ricky) Riley of Lakeland, FL, Tiffany, Eric, Tyler, Jay of Lakeland, FL, and Lili; 4 great grandchildren: Kade, Knox, Madison and McKenzie; three siblings Rex (Marie) White, Pat (Roy) Williamson, Jack (Joan) White; a life-long friend Emily White; numerous nieces, nephews and cousins; and a dear sweet family she loved as her own – Heidi Thompson and her two “little cuties” Owen and Isabel. Throughout her life and unto her death, she loved and cared for most everyone she came across, always quick with a smile and loved to laugh at even the worst jokes told by her grandchildren for the 100th time. In the last few years throughout her battle with Alzheimers, she continued to love and was loved by several people who stepped in to give special care and attention to our mom. A heartfelt thanks to these wonderful people without whom we would have been lost: Beth Cooper, Angela Wise, Pam Holsing, Brigett & Raven Valier, Roxanne Smith, TJ Ackenhausen, Holly, and the wonderful staff at The Blake Pensacola – especially Amy. Thank you all for loving our mom as your own. A celebration of her life will be held on Sunday, January 19, 2020 at Eastern Gate Memorial Gardens, 1985 West Nine Mile Road, Pensacola, FL with visitation at 1:00 p.m., service at 2:00 p.m., followed by a time of fellowship at Ensley Alliance Church, 512 W. Detroit Blvd., Pensacola, FL.
