Bobbie was such a sweet and caring person. My heart is so heavy with losing her here on earth. I’m comforted to know that there are angels in heaven singing and rejoicing to welcome her to her heavenly home and that God has taken away all her pain and burdens. I was honored to grow up with Bobbie. She always treated me well and she never once said an unkind word. We had fun playing beauty shop when we were kids. Bobbie had a way of making simple things fun. She will be remembered for her unwavering faith in God and her care and love for her family. I look forward to meeting Bobbie again in Heaven!

John and l were very sad to hear of the passing of our niece Bobbie. We hadn't seen her in quite some time but the last time was when we lived at Lake Brownwood. She and the girls had a nice visit with us. They loved our Collie Manly and he loved them right away. So much so that he went home with them! It is a very sad time for everyone but we look forward to seeing her again in the future paradise. Love to all

Bobbie always had a sweet spirit about her. We were co-workers for several years. She always had a genuine care about people, a very sincere person. It was an honor to have known her. I know she is walking streets of gold now. Blessings to the family.

I’m gonna miss aunt Bobbie so much! 😔 I love how she always welcomed me into the family like I was her own. I would always love it when she would come down and visit because she didn’t alway come because of work but when she did I always made sure I came and seen you all. I will never forget the love she always gave me. I will miss her so much.
Praying for you all and your family in this time of loss ❤️
