Bobbi Watkinson, beloved wife of Bob Watkinson, passed away on August 13, 2013 at her home in Mount Shasta. She was 68 years young.

Bobbi was born in Wisconsin, raised in southern California, and educated at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

She lived in the Bay Area for 30 years, working as a writer and editor of history textbooks.

She moved to Mount Shasta in 2007. While here, Bobbi volunteered at the library; and then discovered her true avocation – playing with the kitties at the Humane Society.

She leaves behind all those whose lives were brightened by her laugh, her smile, and her warmth.

In addition to her husband Bob, Bobbi is survived by her sister Diane and her husband Glen McLean of Hammond Ranch; and Dudley the wonder lab.

A celebration of Bobbi’s life will be held at her home on a date to be arranged.
