Affectionately known as "Bobcat," Bobbie ran several local restaurants and bars in East Nashville throughout the years including Vaden's, Hudson's, The Pot Belly, Farmers' Market Café, and Edgefield Restaurant at 11th and Woodland. During those years, she also worked at the Tennessee State Prison in a "job training" role for the inmates. She made it a point to become personal friends with all of her patrons, and always made sure that anyone who came into her bar, or her home, had plenty to eat and drink! Bobbie was known for her colorful personality and loved to be of help to those in need.

The family has planned to gather with friends to celebrate, visit and share their memories of Bobbie's life at Eastland Funeral Home on Saturday, the 11th of April 2015 beginning at eleven o'clock and continuing up until the time of service at one o'clock.
