Bobbie was the sister to the late Wayne Pierce of Melbourne, the late Linda Kay Wilson of Batesville, Patsy Branscum of Batesville, and Duran Page of Batesville.
Bobbie was a dedicated mother first and foremost. She treasured her children, and she especially loved her role as “YaYa” to her granddaughter. Bobbie also was a dedicated Registered Nurse for many years at Unity Health Hospital in Searcy on 3 South floor. She got to spend her last days on that same floor and she was taken amazing care of by her dedicated former co-worker nurse friends. She had a smile on her face and was holding hands with both of her children when she passed away. “Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory” – Dr Seuss
