Bobbie Joyce Lee Sample, age 89, of Hoover, Alabama went to be with the Lord on March 31, 2023. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and will be greatly missed.
Bobbie was married to Donald (Don) Sample for 69 years. Together they established a home rooted in faith with their 3 children. They were members at South Roebuck Baptist Church where Bobbie spent many years teaching 5-year-old Sunday School. In their later years, she and Don were members at Green Valley Baptist Church and spent countless hours quietly serving in the Clothes Closet Ministry.
Bobbie was a stay-at-home mom who treasured this responsibility. She was an excellent cook who always had dinner and a homemade dessert waiting in the kitchen. She was a constant supporter of any activity that involved her children or grandchildren. Bobbie and Don were inseparable and set a great example of what a happy marriage and happy family should look like. They loved their frequent trips to the beach and occasional trips to the mountains.
Bobbie, also known as Mimi, will be greatly missed by her devoted husband, three children, four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Bobbie is preceded in death by her parents, Robert Lee and Dura Lee. She is survived by her husband, Don Sample, children, Donny (Allison) Sample, Kathy (Hal) Wadsworth and David (Lisa) Sample, her grandchildren, Chris (Megan) Wadsworth, Michael (Madison) Wadsworth, Clay Jones and Abby Jones, and her great-grandchildren, Camille Wadsworth, Mason Wadsworth and Daniel Wadsworth.
The family will be holding a private service.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Green Valley Baptist Church Food Bank Ministry in her name.
