  1. My thoughts and prayers are with Kenneth and Eric and Roberta. Being from a large family it is amazing she could make gifts for all her nieces and nephews. Roberta had a great sense of humor and was a great story teller. I miss the family get-togethers we used to have.

  2. Such a talented and giving person. Christmas was always exciting as she always made a little gift for everyone. And she taught me to make the best blackberry cobbler ever.

  3. I always will remember the wonderful rhubarb/strawberry pies Bobbie made.
    She always made me feel welcome at her home. Linda Hammer
