Bobbie Bemis

August 31, 1925 - October 27, 2013

Bobbie Bemis Passed on October 27, 2013 after a short battle with gallbladder cancer.

Originally born in Ontario, California, in 1925, Bobbie grew up in Los Angeles the youngest of three children: James (deceased) and surviving sister, Virginia.

Bobbie was a great homemaker and loving mother leaving a legacy of wonderful family memories.

A trailblazer to the end, Bobbie relocated to the Pacific Northwest in her Seventies to start her final adventure.

She leaves behind her three children Stephen (Dominique) of Bainbridge Island, Randa (Otis) Smith of Hacienda Heights, California, and Cheryl (Larry) Lander of Santa Barbara, California, along with six grandchildren and three great grandchildren. Bobbie grew up during lean times, and continued to exhibit those hard learned lessons her entire life. She will be greatly missed but will be remembered though fond memories of the beautiful Virgo she was.
