Barbara Ann Bridges Terry, 60, of Bushnell, Fla., passed away Dec. 14, 2013, at the Lane Purcell Hospice House in Sumterville. She was born in Leesburg to Robert and Edwina Bridges in 1953 and went to Groveland High School and Lake Vo-Tech. Bobbie, as the family called her, was preceded in death by her parents, Robert and Edwina Bridges, and by her sons, Robert N. Shane Bridges and Jack Allen Terry. She is survived by Billy Simpson; daughter, Rebecca D. Terry; sisters, Robin Jane Bridges, and Bonnie Bridges Wells (Tony); nephew, Adam Wells (Lauren); and niece, Wendy Wells Davenport and children. Bobbie had many jobs over her lifetime and a couple caused serious head injuries, and she saved someone from being hit by a car and was hit herself, instead. She always stood up for herself and would take on anyone if she thought they were going to harm someone she loved. She will be missed, but she is now in a better place. A visitation will be at the Purcell Funeral Home Chapel, 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 19, 2013. Services will be at the Purcell Funeral Home Chapel, 11 a.m. Friday, Dec. 20, 2013, with Mr. Wayne Young presiding. Online condolences may be left at www.purcellfuneralhome.com.
