Sarah Vowell (Alex), Melissa Mackereth (Jacob), Lisa Boreland (fiancé Ryan Wright) and Abbie Boreland. She was so proud to be a great grandmother to Nolan, Jade and Julia. She loved her family dearly.
She was kind, loving and funny. Bobbi loved music and loved to dance. Boating on the Saint John River with Bob, and sometimes with family members aboard, made Bobbi extremely happy. She loved the river. Later in life, she discovered her love of watercolors and she painted some beautiful pictures. She was a proud member of the Legion Branch 4 for 45 years and she was honored to be a member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Police Veterans Association.
Due to the Pandemic, there will be a private family only memorial service, with interment to follow in the Fredericton Rural Cemetery.
We would like to thank the nursing staff and doctors of 3SW DECH who kept her as comfortable as possible during her stay. In lieu of flowers, should friends desire, donations can be made to the charity of their choice by the family.
