Barbara Tabor Greenwell

November 17, 1921 ~ July 26, 2019 (age 97)

 

Bobbie was born in Florida November 17, 1921 to Archie and Mabel Tabor. She lived there until she married Ray J. Greenwell in 1942 and moved to San Francisco, California. She and Ray had two children, Teine Rae and Thomas (Skip).

Ray worked on cargo ships and eventually became a captain. His job overseas required him to be gone from home a lot, thereby Bobbie was left to manage the home front alone.

Ray died in 1987 and Bobbie moved from their home in Indiana, CA. in 1999 to Centralia to be close to her children.

Bobbie enjoyed travelling, sketching, sewing, cooking, and spending time with her family. She started coming to Mt. View at first just to Heritage Club, then later to church services. She enjoyed helping set up for the Heritage Club potlucks and did so till she couldn’t walk anymore.

Her final month and a half, she lived in a local Centralia adult family home. She passed away there peacefully on Friday, July 26th, 2019.
