Her favorite pastime was bragging on her seven grandchildren, twenty great-grandchildren, and six great-great-grandchildren. The family shares fond memories of Mamaw's Sunday lunches, especially her pot roasts, hot rolls, corn casserole and yummy desserts. Bobbie Sue was the ultimate homemaker in the eyes of her family.

J. W. and Bobbie and Peggy and I were neighbors for 46 years. And they were such good neighbors. J. W. left us in January, and Bobbie has now followed. We will miss them, but they are together again in eternal repose. We give thanks for their lives, and extend our heartfelt sympathy to their family.
My hearts goes out to the Nicholson’s Family during this difficult time.
