Bobbie was a sweet and loving person. I remember the special times together when we were neighbors.

I just heard my banking partner Bobbie passed away! I am heartbroken as I did not know she was ill. Bobbie has been my wire transfer buddy for many years and I have counted on her kindness, her laughter, and our discussions about our travels and our grandchildren to be on the other end of the phone when I call to send money around the world. We have shared pictures of our grandbabies and stories of our vacations together, we could tell just by our voices when one of us wasn't feeling well, always with genuine concern for each other. The last time we spoke was Dec 16th at 2:00 and we were both excited about the holidays approaching, seeing all of our families and the joy of Christmas. ... I will never forget her precious voice when she answered the phone, "This is Bobbie" and I would usually say in response, "Good, because that's who I was calling!" We'd always laugh about it and catch up on life since we last spoke. I'm sure all of her other customers felt the same way I do, we will all miss her!

I'm saddened to hear of Bobbie's passing. I live in Chattanooga but do banking at FSB talking to Bobbie often. My sincere sympathies go out to her immediate family and her banking family. She will be missed.
