On Monday, Jan. 21, we lost a loved one who touched and enriched so many of our lives.

Bobby Gene Brookshier was born on May 7, 1929 in Panhandle, Texas to Homer and Violet Durham. She was the fourth of their eight children.

She married William Loyd Brookshier on March 16, 1946. They were blessed with four children: Loyd, Ronnie, Lois and Joyce. She was a proud grandmother of 12 grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren, and 9 great-great-grandchildren.

Bobby was a longtime resident of Moab. She retired from the National Park Service where she was a park ranger who enjoyed sharing her knowledge of the area she loved. After retirement, she maintained a very active lifestyle including travel and doubling the size of her home to accommodate all her family and friends.

We will miss her, and the cherished memories each of us have of her will live on in all of our hearts.

Funeral services were held Monday, Jan. 28, 2019 at 1 p.m. at the Assembly of God Church followed by burial at Sunset Memorial Gardens Cemetery.
