She was born and raised in Limestone County (Athens), Alabama.  Bobbie was a retired elementary school teacher from the Lawrence County School System.  At the age of 36, she decided to go to college and pursue a degree in Education thus receiving a Bachelor and Master’s Degree, teaching mostly in the elementary school system, along with a Plus 45 supervision education (one year).  With only one semester left to have her doctorate degree, she lost interest after the passing of her first husband.  She volunteered her time at NHC Scott Nursing Home for many years and delivered Meals on Wheels for several years.  She was also known as “Nana” to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
