Bobbie lived a full life. She loved living and working hard on the family farm with John. In her fifties she returned to her passion, nursing, and worked as a PSW for ten years at North Lambton Lodge until her retirement. Bobbie was a longtime member of Forest United Church and enjoyed her years of teaching Sunday School. In her retirement Bobbie and her husband John appreciated their time volunteering with the Canadian Cancer Society as drivers.
In her later years, despite her struggles with dementia, she would find joy in the little things. She loved her cat, looking out the window at the birds and squirrels, and eating out at restaurants! Her last years were spent at Watford Quality Care where she enjoyed the music programs, church, and art class. Bobbie’s family would like to express their appreciation to the staff who lovingly cared for her these past four years.
