Obituary

Bobbie Jean Jones was born on September 13, 1931 in Daingerfield, TX. She was the second of four children born to Boston and Elsie Jones. Bobbie was an ambitious child who loved her family. She shared many stories of childhood memories and would smile the entire time. She grew up in the New Hope Baptist church where she accepted Christ as her savior. She remained faithful to the church and served as a choir member, usher, hospitality staff, and Sunday School teacher until her health failed. She was also a member of the Order of the Eastern Star.
​Bobbie graduated from J.J. Rhoads High School in 1949. However, she went into the workforce long before graduating. She often told of how she started working at 8 years old. “I was washing dishes and cleaning houses,” she would say. She continued to work in homes and helped several families to raise their children. One of those families, being the family of Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Crossland. She was also later employed by the J. J. Rhoads school in the cafeteria as a cook in 1960. She remained there until the school was integrated in 1968.
​In 1950 Bobbie married Charles E. Lee. To this union, 5 children were born. Bobbie loved Richard, Bobby, Karen, Howard, and Tony with her whole heart, and she taught them to love others as she extended her home to children from every area of the community. Bobbie was a nurturer and that spirit led her to welcome Robin Garrett into her home as an infant and raise her as her own child.
​Bobbie was a grandmother like no other. Her grandchildren affectionately called her “Grandmama.” She did not mind having them all at her house at any time. She would make pallets on the floor to have a place for them all to sleep and would make sure they all went to bed fed and could look forward to a hot breakfast in the morning.
​Bobbie was known in the community for her cooking skills and could be found in her home preparing a meal while humming those old church hymns. She offered loving advice and took pride in mending clothes for herself, her children, and her grandchildren. She could fix anything with a needle and thread or duct tape.
​On August 10, 2020 Bobbie slipped away to join her loved ones who preceded her in death, her parents, her husband, her siblings Corrie Shellingbird, Robert Jones, and Charles Jones, her son Bobby Lee, and her grandsons Callen Watson and Brandon Lee, her great grandson Tyrus Smith, and a special sister in law, Zettie Jones. She will be missed by those left behind. Her children: Richard Lee (Charlotte), Karen Key (Alfred Jr), Howard Lee (Cheryl), Tony Lee (Erma), and Robin Peterson (Caranza), daughter in law Georgette Lee, 23 grandchildren, 46 great grandchildren, 4 great- great grandchildren, a special friend Azilee Brown of Lindale, TX, a host of brothers and sisters in law, nieces, nephews, friends, her favorite nurse: Tameker Taylor, RN, and the entire student body of J.J. Rhoads High School.

Condolences to the family on the loss of your loved one. I knew Bobbie from my days of living in Daingerfield, and from my years of attending Rhoads High School. My brother Raymond, his wife, and I stopped by to visit with her a few years ago. She was as friendly as ever. May she rest peacefully in the arms of our Heavenly Father.
