Memories Timeline


  1. Heaven gained another angel from our Pink Alliance Breast Cancer Support Group. Bobbie had a forever smile and was a proud breast cancer survivor of 9 years. Her effervescent, bubbly personality will be missed by all. May she rest in peace forever.

  2. I am going to miss you dearly, Aunt Bobbie. You are loved very much by your family and your friends. You were taken from us much too soon. I’m thankful that I got to see you in February at Granny’s birthday party. I had the pleasure of sitting at the table where you were sitting and got to speak with you. I would never have imagined that you would be leaving this earth almost seven months later. Now you are among the angels in Heaven. We shall meet again. Rest in peace.

  3. We are unable to attend, but please know that our prayers are with you. May our sweet sister-in-law Rest In Peace.
    Butch and Angie Lehmann

  4. Aunt Bobbie,
    When I first met you, I was a teenager. The LORD set our paths in two different directions. HE later crossed our path in May 2016 and most recently in February 2020. I Thank GOD HE gave me the opportunity to re-unite with you again before you flown to Heaven. Until we meet again.
    Love Jai

  5. Rest peacefully, Great-Aunt Bobbie. I’m grateful to have been able to see you at Granny’s birthday party back in February. It brings me peace to know you are no longer in pain.

  6. You’re an Angel called home. We’re deeply saddened by your absence but knowing, we’ll soon see you in YHVH’s glorious Kingdom.

  7. We are so sorry for the loss of your daughter, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. Cherish the fond memories in your hearts. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

  8. Bobbie was a member of the local vow post auxiliary with me. When I met her she was such a friendly person. She loved life and being friend to everyone. I am praying for the family and friends.

  9. Though we could not be with you for Bobbie’s service please know we were with you in spirit. When we think of Bobbie we remember the famous quote, “Until one has loved an animal, part of their soul remains unawakened.” Bobbie had a capacity to love every sweet animal she ever saw. Her soul was fully awakened by love not just for little animals but also for family, friends and basically for all mankind. She was always full of fun. We laughed and played together at all our gatherings. We will miss our sister-in-law. May God hold her in the palm of His hand.
