Bobbie was a caring and generous lady. She opened her home and her heart to all. Her home was always filled with family, laughter, and love. Bobbie was a great cook and cooked enough to feed an army every time that she made a meal. Bobbie loved children and nurtured many throughout her lifetime.

She was born May 13, 1932, in Boothspoint, Tennessee, to Fred B. and Lottie Lucas Tubbs (both deceased). She was one of six children. Her siblings are Tom Tubbs (Spokane, WA), Dickie "Grassie" Tubbs (Ridgely, TN), Jane Cherry (Dyersburg, TN), Martha Tubbs (deceased), and Andorell Tubbs (deceased).

Bobbie graduated from Dyersburg High School. She was a hard worker. She raised four children - J.P. Berkley, married to Donna, of Jackson, TN; Mark Berkley, fiancÚ Sandy, of Milan, TN; Lana B. Wood, married to Joe, of Dyersburg, TN; and Sherri B. Teeter, married to Dean, of Dyersburg, TN. She cared for and loved her seven grandchildren - Berk Berkley, Jamie Kay Berkley, Tristan Berkley, Zach Berkley, Ryan Wood, Gage Teeter, Cort Teeter; and her three great-grandchildren - Josh Berkley, Kadence Berkley, and Brody Berkley.

Bobbie enjoyed working in jobs that allowed her to nurture and serve others. She retired as a cook from Dyersburg Middle School where she loved seeing and serving all of the children. She also worked as an associate at Wal-Mart in Dyersburg for many years. Bobbie was a member of the Lenox Baptist Church until she moved to "town." She was a member of the First Baptist Church of Dyersburg, TN. She formed many, many strong friendships over the course of her lifetime and spent many hours laughing with her friends Mrs. Hanna, Mrs. Reba, Dardis, Peaches, Mrs. Marry and many others.

Bobbie Tubbs Berkley will be missed.
