A memorial service to celebrate her life will be held at 11 a.m. Sunday, March 8, at The United Center, 1440 Colorado Blvd., Idaho Springs, CO 80452. A luncheon reception will follow at the Idaho Springs Elks Lodge.
Bobbi was born in Ainsworth, Neb., to Robert and Beverly Moody on April 4, 1954. She was one of eight children. The family moved to Colorado in 1958, and they settled in Idaho Springs in 1961.
She attended Carlson Elementary and graduated from Clear Creek Secondary School in 1972. She worked for the National Forest Service for 28 years and weekends at the Chicago Creek Clinic.
Bobbi was an incredible mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, daughter and friend. Her laugh and smile were contagious! Her love for her family was deep, unconditional and without end. She truly brought joy and happiness with her wherever she went.
Her love for purple, puppies, long drives, swimming, reading, Coke, pickles, cheeseburgers and chocolate never wavered, and will always make us think of her. We were so blessed to have her in our lives. She will be missed every second of every day!
Bobbi is preceded in death by her parents, Robert and Beverly Moody, her oldest brother Roger Moody and her brother-in-law Robert Bechtel.
Bobbi is survived by her sons Cory King (Kelly) and Andy King (Bethany); her siblings Jerrie Schurr, Sheila McAuliffe, Susan Sharpe, Becky Moody (Pete Albrecht), Dona New and Michael Moody (Debbie); her grandchildren Wyatt, Cody, Cooper, Nathan, Norah and Kyle King; nine nieces and nephews; and many great-nieces and nephews.
