Annie Roberta “Bobbie” Bjarnason

March 10, 1929 ~ October 5, 2014

Bobbie passed away on October 5, 2014 after battling an array of ailments that would have laid a lesser mortal low years ago.

Annie Roberta “Bobbie” Bjarnason was born to Robert and Clara Millner on March 10, 1929 at Camp Lister, BC. Bobbie attended high school in Creston where she learned the skills to become an office manager. She worked for the Department of Social Welfare in Prince George where she met her husband. After living and working around the province, Bobbie and Don were able to return to the Creston Valley where they raised their children. Bobbie was ever active in group activities, especially serving with the Anglican Women’s Guild wherever she lived. She also enjoyed bowling, crocheting with her “Stitch and Bitch” group and meeting for lunch with the classmates of ’47.

She was predeceased by her husband Orion Don, with whom she raised four children, Frank, Richard (Robin), Robert (Stephanie) and Louise (Ken). She will be remembered fondly by her grandchildren Rowan, Ian, Vaughn, Jessica, Peter, Richard, Nicholas, Natalie and Amy, as well as her sisters, Dorothy, Isabel, Elizabeth, Laura (Alan) and brother Tom.

She was predeceased by her parents Robert and Clara Millner and her siblings Mary, Catherine, Richard and Jim.

Bobbie was a helpful daughter, loving sister, loyal wife and a strong and good-hearted mother. She has “gone the way of the worry free.”

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Canadian Cancer Society, organizations which Bobbie supported for many years.

The family would like to thank Dr. Griffioen for his years of care for Bobbie, the wonderful home support and nursing staff at CGH and the paramedics.

Mom appreciated your kindness.
