Bobbie Lynn Delaney
Bobbie Lynn Delaney, 61, formerly of Dallas, TX and St. Paul, MN, passed away Saturday, October 12, 2019 at her beloved home in Cape Coral, FL where she has enjoyed every day since 2015. She was born in New Orleans, LA on August 21, 1958. She is survived by her loving husband, Dave Delaney of Cape Coral, FL; daughters, Kelly Alexander of Cleveland, TN, Anngel Delaney and Delia Yarrow of Ithaca, NY; as well as a granddaughter, Leora Yarrow of Ithaca, NY.
Bobbie’s legacy entails her courage and strength through life’s struggles and dark moments while continuing to blaze her own trail like a firecracker. There was never a question of Bobbie’s love – it poured out of her heart through her words and actions – you could see it in her eyes and you felt it in your soul. Being in her world meant you were cherished, accepted and celebrated exactly as you were.
Basking in retired life with her knight in shining armor, “Wednesday Warriors” time, soul sister connections, visits from her adult “kids,” granddaughter, and lifelong friends filled her days. She was genuinely happy, content and loved the life she and Dave built together.
Bobbie’s contagious laughter, twinkle in her eyes and talking to anyone who will listen – are already missed beyond words. She graciously shared her joy so many ways. Her dancing and singing in public despite sometimes not being able to carry a tune. The uncanny ability to look absolutely adorable at all times, even in her pajamas. Her quick wit and bantering with the best of them. The sense of humor that would have you snorting, holding your belly and trying not to pee yourself all at once. Her impartial kindness, empathy, and love. Bobbie embodied the gifts of thoughtfulness and ability to make others feel special. The world is forever changed by her beautiful, kind soul that touched everyone she came in contact with.
Bobbie’s most precious pastime was “Making Memories” with her loved ones, so in remembrance of the love, laughter, and joy she shared – please, go after those.
Celebrations of Life for Bobbie will be held in both Cape Coral, FL and Rochester, MN.
Mullins Memorial Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Cape Coral, is entrusted with final care.
