Born December 9, 1936, in Austin, Texas, Bobbie Lou Fennell departed this life on June 30, 2010. The youngest child of Roy and Johnnie Mae Bacon, Bobbie met the love of her life, Larry, at an early age. They were married over 57 years, and to this union were born two daughters, Brenda King and Linda Edwards (Charles) and three grandchildren: Meika Sherrer, Jarrett King and Brittany Edwards. She also leaves to mourn two sisters, Roy Jean Lee (James) and Billie Alexander (Castimel), and several nieces and nephews.

Family was everything to Bobbie as she was a devoted wife and mother who delayed her career to be a stay at home mom during her daughters' early years. During this time, she taught herself to type and took the civil service examination which landed her an entry level job as a keypunch operator at the Internal Revenue Service. After several promotions throughout her career, she retired in 1990 from IRS as the EEO Director after 28 years of service. After retirement, she volunteered at the soup kitchen one of her favorite community service activities. "Min-Min" as she was lovingly known by her family, filled her days with Larry as they nurtured their grandkids and pet Yorkie, Nia (NeNe).

A lifetime member of Ebenezer Baptist Church, she professed her faith at a young age. She was a member of Mission II Sarah Circle.

Bobbie attended Austin Public Schools and participated in various clubs and activities. She particularly enjoyed being a twirler at L. C. Anderson High School. A Lifelong learner, Bobbie was a current events enthusiast and enjoyed her favorite "program" The View; she enjoyed debating the topics discussed with anyone who dared. She was a lifelong friend and mentor to many who valued her opinions and advice.

The family extends their gratitude to the staff of South Austin Medical Center, DaVita South Austin Dialysis Center, Dr. Douglas Salmon and the staff of Life Oak Cardiology. Donations to American Heart Association in Bobbie's name are encouraged.
