The second of three children, she is preceded in death by her parents, sister, Nancy Fosnow, and brother, Robert Narzinsky. Bobbie was a member of the First United Methodist Church for over 50 years. A graduate of the University of Colorado, Bobbie taught Spanish briefly at both Bremen and Central City High Schools.
