  1. Bobbie had a fun-loving spirit and a warmth and friendliness that spread to all around her.
    She helped me “learn the ropes” when I was a new teacher. She was a good friend to me. I will miss her.
    How many students who benefited through the years from that warmth and caring must have fond memories of their first grade with Mrs. Bounds!
    My love and prayers go out to the family. It is a hard, sad time to get through.
