Bobbie worked all of her life but spent many years working for the US Postal Service as a letter carrier in League City. After the death of her beloved husband, Pat, she retired to spend more time with her family.
Bobbie leaves behind to cherish her memory daughters Darlene Dobos (Paul), Patti Freudenberg (Rodney), Peggy Semmler, and Cindy Morse (Wade), numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren, as well as lifelong friends Verna Lawrence, Sherrill Sunday, and Pat Chase. She is preceded in death by her husband, Pat, and grandson, Justin Wade Morse.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Safe Project to provide information on overdose awareness in honor of her grandson.
