Born to Walter Johnson Crowe and Audrey Nation Crowe in Cartersville, GA on February 25, 1930, she graduated from Cartersville High School, and then worked for Atlanta Hospital Supply and Georgia Power and Light before moving to Eau Gallie, FL in 1957, after a number of moves as an Army Lt.’s wife. 
 
Bobbie’s career continued as Assistant City Clerk for the City of Eau Gallie, FL before the merger with the City of Melbourne, FL.  Her love for flowers led her to become a floral designer, assisting with the opening of Petals Florist, where she was senior designer until her retirement at age 70.
