I am so sorry to hear of Bobbie's death !  Bobbie did so much in her lifetime, it's hard to put it all down !! We went to South Pasadena JHS, HS, and UC Santa Barbara together and majored in PE.

Bobbie worked hard to redo the CA girls PE specifications ! She also worked hard and long to help remedy the Camarillo Scool District  problems. As is usual there were many views as to how to solve the problems facing Camarillo, and Bobbie "hung in there" long after I would have quit in disgust ! She really made a big difference in everything she did ! If she saw something wrong, she stepped in to fix it!

She worked w the Girl Scouts, and Singing Pines Girl Scout Camp for longer than I can remember !

Bobbie was also very involved w the love of her life - her Spaniels ! She bred, raised, and showed her dogs all over, and won much acclaim for her efforts!

Bobbie made a huge difference for so many people, in so many places !! Bobbie has friends, upon friends, upon friends ! She will be especially  missed by in the CA. P.E. world, the Girl Scouting world, and the dog world - not to mention her SP teachers, and classmates !
