As long as I remember, Bobbie Ruth was there. In my mind, she was one of the prettiest, sweetest girl / woman I knew. I know she will be missed so very much. Until we meet in that place, that time, rest peacefully. I love you. Your cousin, RosaLee.

Sending prayers from the Gillespie family. We all remember Bobbie Ruth for the sweet beautiful lady she was. We knew growng up to go to Papa Folgers if Bobbie Ruth would be cooking anything!!! Every time she saw one of our family, she also asked about our Mom and said she wanted to go see her. We will keep you all in our prayers!
