Roberta "Bobbie" Lewis peacefully left her home and entered into eternity early Saturday morning on Nov. 7, 2015.
She was born July 9, 1936 in Silver City, New Mexico. Her parents Delmar and Vivian lived and worked on the Alamo Hueco ranch in New Mexico, where her grandfather was foreman. Those who went on before her include her infant son, Roy Lee Morrison, father Delmar Smart, brother Thomas Smart, mother Vivian Moorhead Sharp, stepfather "WC" Clyde Sharp and sister Virginia DeConter. Those left behind to feel the emptiness of her absence include her three children: Diana Buckley, Kellie Holsey and Thomas Burkhart, and grandchildren Anikkia, Jessica, Jamie, Angela, and Ashley. She also leaves be-hind a sister, Clydene Rowe, and brother, Robert Sharp, as well as many other family and friends too numerous to count.
Bobbie was known for her love of horses, brought about by her time on the ranch. As a child she would beg her uncles to take her along with them on their long working days. She never complained, despite the long days, for fear of not being included the next time. When the time came for her to put away the saddle, she took up collecting horse statues and other western artwork. Her home was filled with collectibles she obtained over countless years of treasure-hunting trips. She was also known for her quick wit and her way with words that resulted in much laughter.
No service will be held since her desire was to donate her body to "Science Care" to possibly help others who suffer as she had with chronic widespread pain.
