Born in Lynchburg, and raised on Edgewood Farm in Louisa, Bobbie, or "Ma" as she was known to her family, attended Richmond Professional Institute where she met her husband, Dave.
A lifelong homemaker, Ma loved nothing more than to be with her family, telling stories, laughing, and cooking food for anyone who walked through her kitchen door. Her sweet tea was second to none.
Her fierce love for her family will be cherished by all of those who adored her, forever. A celebration of her life was held in the mausoleum at Westhampton Memorial Park on Feb. 1. Donations in her name may be made to Trinity United Methodist Church, 903 Forest Avenue, Henrico, VA 23229.
