Bobbie Hamer Gardner
March 6, 1934 – December 17, 2021
…Life is sweet if you look about
Just beyond the wind and the rain.
The clouds will lift, the flowers will bloom
And the birds will sing again.
- Josephine Terry Bullock
Bobbie Hamer Gardner, 87, of Bella Vista, Arkansas died Friday, December 17, 2021, at Florence Home Healthcare in Omaha, Nebraska. Bobbie was born March 6, 1934, in Terlton, Oklahoma to Raymond Daniel Hamer and Josephine Alice Bullock.
Bobbie was a loving daughter, wife, and mother. She devoted her life to family and creating a home full of love and joy. Bobbie spent countless hours selflessly serving others and making life-long happy memories and traditions within the home. She strived to inspire all those around her with hard work and words of encouragement.
It can be said that Bobbie was never fully recognized by the world for all her accomplishments. She didn’t want or need that. Bobbie understood she is a daughter of a loving Heavenly Father and knew the importance of her central role in her family.
An avid actress and performer, Bobbie had a flare for the arts and routinely volunteered to perform in community theater performances throughout her life. In more intimate settings, she performed bedtime lullabies, played the piano, and was always willing to spend time putting puzzles together, playing cards, baking, or attending family activities.
Bobbie is survived by one daughter, Terrie Busacker of Omaha, Nebraska; two sons, Michael Edwin Gardner (Belinda) of Bentonville, Arkansas, and James Philip Gardner (Cheryl) of Leesburg, Virginia; ten grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren.
