Bobbie loved to teach and be with children. She treasured her time at Rainbow Pre-School in Stillwater and at Ripley Public Schools, where she touched the lives of many children and families. Additionally, she was instrumental in the startup Boomer Laundry in Woodward, OK. Bobbie also enjoyed making sure all of the customers felt welcome.
Her passion was family and friends. She enjoyed keeping in touch with her friends from high school. She also enjoyed talking with family. Family defined by Bobbie was anyone that crossed her path. She loved people, and never met a stranger.
