Barbara Jean "Bobbi" Dees Obituary
Dees, Barbara Bobbi Jean lived a full life and passed away on July 15, 2014. She is survived by her loving husband, Bill Dees; daughter, Mary Jo Metzger Pace (Dennis); sons, Gregory Dees and Thomas Dees (Michelle); grandchildren, Heidi Hardcastle (Ray), William Metzger, Johanna Mayes (John), Alison Hartman (Adrian), Bradley Dees, Michael Dees and Colleen Dees; great-grandchildren Maxwell and William Hardcastle and Julianna Mayes; sister, Lillian Mahler and many nieces and nephews. Bobbi was preceded in death by her son-in-law, Scott Metzger and great-granddaughter, Josie Mayes. Bobbi was born on October 26, 1928, in Bonne Terre, Missouri, and grew up in Desloge, Missouri, where her love of books began while serving on the Library Board. After the war, she met and married Bill on August 31, 1946. After moving to St. Louis, Bobbi worked at St. Louis Country Club and the County Government Center. In addition to being an avid reader, Bobbi enjoyed playing Bridge, fishing and traveling with Bill, including all parts of the United States, Canada, Europe, Mexico and China. She was also an enthusiastic Cardinals' fan and rarely missed a game. Bobbi was a wonderful grandmother and took great pride in her grandchildren's activities and achievements. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends, and certainly all her Bridge ladies!
