Bobbie Hartman

Bobbie Fountain Hartman was born in Jasper County, Texas to Garland and Viola Curry on January 25, 1935. She passed away Monday, May 29, 2017 at home surrounded by family.

Bobbie was a telephone operator for Southwestern Bell for many years until her retirement. Bobbie enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, especially the “Golden Girls”, Joyce Quevedo, Patsy Ceccacci, Bettie Donaldson and Mary Alexander (who preceded her in death). The family will always remember Bobbie’s home cooking and fun holidays gatherings she hosted throughout the years. She unselfishly welcomed and loved all unconditionally.

The family would like to thank Michelle Whitfield, Jennifer Cole and A-Med Hospice for their exceptional care and being her guardian angels through this difficult time. Bobbie was truly blessed by her family and friends. She touched so many people and made a difference in their lives just by knowing her.
