    Bobbi was a person of great joy and everyone loved working with her. She was like a mother to us all. She was so generous and kind. Also a very unique person, strong, funny and direct. She will be greatly missed but always remembered.

    Martha, I am so sorry for your loss. I loved painting with Bobbie at Trinity Respite. She was great to be with. She made me laugh and smile many times. We shared memories of our childhood in Newfane. I hold memories of her very dear in my heart. I will pray for your family at this time.

    Dear Martha and Bobbie’s Family. We were sorry to hear of Bobbie’s passing. We enjoyed getting to know her for her honesty, wit, and the gifts she brought and shared with us. We know that in her time back in Lockport she was loved and supported by her family and those she came in contact with. Our prayers are with you.

    Bobbi was great to work with and would always have your back. She was very caring and giving. We enjoyed visiting her home and yard where she shared fruit from her incredible citrus trees.
