Patricia Ann (Goulding) Bobo

March 20, 1933February 11, 2021

Patricia Ann Goulding Bobo, daughter of Reba and Harry R. Goulding, said farewell from her Punta Gorda home with her family near. She was a fourth generation Punta Gorda native. She enjoyed a wonderful childhood on Retta Esplanade in a house filled daily with fresh hibiscus grown by her father, the master hybridizer. She graduated from Charlotte High School in 1951. In the words of locals, she was “old Punta Gorda”. Mickey, her husband, departed peacefully from the same house years ago. She is survived by her daughter, Elta Gipson, her son, Allen Bobo, five grandchildren, four great grandchildren, a host of wonderful nieces and nephews from her late brothers Joe and Mike Goulding and many local friends who lovingly cared for her. A celebration of life will soon be announced.

Such a great loss. Patricia was such a breath of fresh air. Every time she came into the office she was happy and very thankful for everything we did for her. I loved hearing about her life and all the beautiful hibiscus her father started out on Boca Grande. She will forever be a thought when I see that beautiful flower. Rest in peace, Patricia.
