Bobbie was a life time homemaker, a stay at home mom who did upholstery work in her basement for many years. She will be remembered as a friend and "Momma" to many. Proverbs 31: Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
