During her high school years while attending West Seneca HS Bobbie was a cheerleader. She began working early on as a waitress and on the grill at Dubell’s in Gardenville.

One chance day while crossing the street began a love affair that would last a lifetime. On that fateful day Raymond Bilski saw Bobbie and said “I am going to marry you” Bobbies eye was caught as was Ray’s.

Ray & Bobbie were eventually married at Fourteen Holy Helpers church and the two went on to have two daughters, Cheryl Ann & Lynn Marie.
Bobbie’s family meant the world to her. Christmas & Easter were her favorite time of the year to spend with family. She was a big kid at heart and playing with and spending time supporting her grandkids gave her much joy.

In her spare time Bobbie enjoyed: sewing, quilting cooking and bowling. She enjoyed making quilts for her family. Her sewing talents found her making tea towels for the church craft fair. Bobbie could cook most anything and enjoyed sharing her cooking talents with family especially, her famous soups. For many years she was a member of a bowling league with friends.

Bobbie was very social. She had an array of friends. In recent years she was quick to jump in the car with her daughters and share fun times spent with their friends.

Bobbie was very smart, she was not easily fooled. One of her favorite sayings was “be dumb like a fox.”

Her music taste included Swing, Polka, and Neil Diamond.
She will be remembered for being: feisty, loving caring, intelligent, matriarchal, honest, out spoken, having a sense of humor.
