Roberta Lois Okie Newman "Bunny" Pomar Obituary
Roberta "Bunny" Lois Okie Newman Pomar, age 73, died in her home in St. Augustine on Jan. 9, 2019. Born in Jacksonville, N.C. to predeceased Marvin and Diane Okie, she spent most of her childhood and early adult life in the Philadelphia area before moving to Florida in 1992 following the death of her first husband, Gilbert Newman.

Moving first to Jacksonville, Fla. where she met her second husband, James (Jim) E. Pomar and finally settling in St. Augustine for the last 15 years of her life, Bunny is survived by three children, five stepchildren and sixteen grand and great grandchildren.

Described by many as the strongest person they have ever known, Bunny overcame breast cancer in 2000 and continuously fought back against scleroderma from the time of her diagnosis in 1989. Although Bunny loved driving her big truck, riding her fat boy and being with her dog Lil' Bit, her greatest love was spending time with family. Bunny has touched the lives of many and has inspired those who have never met her. Most remembered as loving, fair, stubborn, positive and strong.

A celebration of Bunny's life will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Community Hospice and Palliative Care Foundation.

St. Johns Family Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
