Bobbie came from a large family and being one of the youngest of 12 siblings, and losing her mother at a young age, she learned how to be resilient and dedicated to family. She worked many years at Pike County Community Action and retired from there. She enjoyed helping others and had a love for her community and the people in it. She was a former Girl Scout Leader, 4-H advisor and she enjoyed travel, sewing, quilting and being outdoors. She enjoyed her last few years living in Bristol Village Retirement Community where she enjoyed the beautiful community, people, activities and attending church. Above all, she enjoyed spending time with family which was most important to her. Bobbie was determined, independent, kind and loving.
