Barbara “Bobbi” Holycross
September 18, 1946 - June 29, 2017
Barbara “Bobbi” Holycross, 70, went to be with the Lord on Thursday, June 29, 2017 surrounded by her family.
Bobbi was born September 18, 1946 in Crawfordsville, Indiana to Joe and Helen Amos of Lafayette, Indiana.
Bobbi was known as Memaw to all that had the pleasure of being part of her life. Memaw truly was the most selfless and giving person with a soul as beautiful as her. To know and love Memaw was the greatest gift.
Memaw loved her family, traveling, and cooking. She was fortunate to take several cruises with her husband and family and travel across the country. She was known for her famous eclairs and spent her free time making blankets and crocheting for her loved ones.
Memaw will be deeply missed by her loving husband of 34 years, Charles Holycross; Her three children, son, Mike Hesler (Sheri) of Crawfordsville, IN, and daughters, Tami Hesler and Kelly Cooper of San Antonio, TX; Her sisters, Faith Robbins (Peter) and Pat McClure (Jerry); Her several grandchildren including Joshua Hesler (Maria), Taylor Hesler, Josie Whittinghill, Tory Hesler, Sean Hesler, Ashley Jones (Matthew), Zachery Holycross, Jeffrey Cooper, Caden Cooper, Breanna Holycross, Trevor Holycross; Her great grandchildren are Harper, Damien, Jayda, Kyler, Brooklyn, Lacey, Eden, and Haven; She also had three stepsons, Greg, Dan, and David.
In honoring Memaw’s wishes, no funeral service will take place. In her last selfless request, Memaw wanted a celebration of life cookout at the lake, with friends and family and hotdogs over an open fire, reminiscing fond memories of her loving life.
Our Hearts are heavy losing Bobbie as She & Chuck were our neighbors for some years & we dearly loved Both of them! It was such a shock to get that sad call from Chuck on Last Sun afternoon!! Bless the Whole Family n we will be keeping everyone in our prayers.
