    Bobbie was a wonderful lady. She was very giving. The last 20 years she has been buying Koeze Nuts for her complete family and friends. She package and shipped them all over the country. She purchased the nuts through Daughters of the Nile Annual Nut fundraiser that we have every year to raise money. Bobbie was a large supporter of Daughters of the Nile. Bobbie will be missed. My prayers go out to the family that lost a lovely lady.

  2. Mark & Dina Hanstad

    I cannot imagine what my life would have been like without the support of this precious lady. She resides in my early memories as a caregiver and friend. In my adult life she was a supportive friend. She was at every major event in my life. We loved her dearly. She treated my husband like a son. Her memory will be a blessing. Our thoughts are with you, Pat and family. She loved you all so much.
