Nov 22, 1931- Jan 20, 2013 EDMOND Bobbye Jolene Fancher, also known as "Mamo," passed away on January 20, 2013, at the age of 81 years young. She was a resident of Edmond, Oklahoma. She was youngest of three children born to Tom and Bertha Price in Haskell County, Texas, and is survived by her brother, Delmas (Dick) Price, of Gatesville, Texas. Bobbye was married to Frank Deppe Fancher for 51 years before his passing. One of her many accomplishments was her 25 years of employment at Dillard's Quail Springs. She had an extended family with those she worked with and her many customers that she considered friends. She is survived by her five children: Kathryn of Long Beach, CA; Bill and his wife Dena, of Costa Mesa, CA; Larri, of Edmond; Daniel, of Aspen, CO; and LesLea, of The Village. Her pride was her grandchildren: Nathan and Lindsay Kyle, of Edmond; Skyler Fancher, of Seattle; and Madison Fancher, of Costa Mesa, CA; her great-grandson, Carter Kyle; along with Tanner Wood and Jessie Deason, of Yukon; and Jason Kyle, of Pasadena; her niece, Charlotte Ann Baker and her husband Don, of Waco, TX, and her two children, Stacy and Scott; and her dear friend, Jackie Wood. Mom's spirit runs through the veins of those she loved and who loved her, and we pray that she can hear the wonderful words of encouragement that have been conveyed to her family. She would be proud that she meant that much to so many. "Though our mother from us has gone and a voice we loved so much is still, within our hearts sweet hope does sing, for we know our loss is Heaven's gain." Memorial services for Bobbye will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, January 25, 2013, at the Matthews Funeral Home Chapel. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Paws For Life, P.O. Box 3211 Edmond, OK 73083; or the Edmond HOPE Center, 1251 N Broadway, Edmond, OK 73034.
