Bobbie's Obituary was the first obituary I located when I first started my genealogical journey. I was at first unsure if she was a relative of mine, since the last name was spelled different from my own. I emailed my dad a copy of this email and he said, "that until the family moved to California in the early 1940s; they spelled out surname with an e."
