Bobbie was a wonderful lady whom the Schoppa family had a pleasure of knowing and sharing life's memories with during our entire childhood. She opened her door and heart to my parents, my siblings and our children. Every time we visited WF and mother/dad we spent a moment with Bobbie too. She was like family to us. Numerous memories over 30 something years on Ashgrove. God Bless each of you during this time.

Sweet Bobbie was my neighbor for my entire childhood. She and Bill would allow all the kids in the neighborhood to roller skate in their driveways because they had the smoothest concrete. My mother and Bobbie were dear friends til the bitter end. We loved them both dearly and heaven sure gained a great lady.
