I was a homebound minister from St. Pat's to her and her husband, Jack. I would visit with them after I gave them the sacrament. I enjoyed our visits.

I didn't know Bobby well but surely she was never a stranger to anyone. She made friends wherever she was. May her soul rest in peace and may your memories bring you comfort.

I'm sorry for your loss. Bobbie wasn't a shy person at all if she felt it she said it. Couple of things I will miss about Bobbie is her smile, her always telling me she loves my singing lol, her asking me why am I always so happy & nice, & the her love for Jack and knowing what it is he needing and/or wanting most of the time. It was a pleasure getting to know & care for you this past year.
