Roberta Harriet "Bobbi" Rasey Stockdale
Birth: Jun. 13, 1921
Summit County
Ohio, USA
Death: Dec. 1, 1980
Orange County
Florida, USA

Roberta ('Bobbi' as her friends knew her) was working as a waitress when she met her second husband and soulmate, James Stockdale. According to their stories, she would sneak him a banana at the restaurant from time to time. They were married January 18, 1948 in Fort Monmouth, New Jersey. The family traveled extensively, taking military duty in Okinawa, PA, FL, AK, IL, WI and then back to AK. She became very adept at packing and unpacking. When her husband retired in 1963, they moved back to Alaska, where she worked for the Army Corps of Engineers and was active in the American Legion Auxiliary for Jack Henry Post #1 in Anchorage, where she held many posts (see pictures).

She crossed over following a lenthy fight with cancer originated in her spine.

Her last wish was that her ashes be scattered with that of her husband, who preceded her in crossing over the previous year. They were scattered in Seward Bay, Alaska where they enjoyed participating in the Seward Silver Salmon Derby. Their ashes were scattered by their daughter, Laura and two of their grandchildren, Tanya and James Bates. Officials, along with the chaplain, from their American Legion Post were also present.
