Bobbie Weiser (Tulia)

Tulia, Texas—Bobbie Weiser, 91, died on Friday, January 22, 2021. A graveside service will be held at 2:00 pm Tuesday, January 26, 2021 in Rose Hill Cemetery in Tulia. Arrangements are under the care of Kornerstone Funeral Directors of Tulia. 

Bobbie was born on April 17, 1929 in Waurika, Oklahoma to William Austin and Hanora Caroline Wilfong. She was the youngest and last surviving of their 9 children. She grew up in Dodson, Texas and attended Dodson schools. While she was a child, she spent her days working in the fields with her family, often picking cotton.  Especially later in life, she would tell her stories about the cotton fields and living through the Depression with anyone she struck up conversation with.  She often spoke of going into town in her horse and buggy and going to brush arbor revivals.  Her faith always remained a big part of her life.   

She married J. A. Weiser in Childress. They moved around a few times before ending up in Tulia where they raised their family. They lived in their home in Tulia for over 40 years.  A.D. worked at Taylor Evans Seed Company for just as long, so much of their married life centered around his work there.  Bobbie worked as a bookkeeper for the local grocery store and she worked in the TISD cafeteria for several years. She lived in Canyon a few years before she moved to Amarillo in 2018. 

She loved crocheting and working outside and always kept the most beautiful yard at her big corner lot on 5th street.  If not at work or in her yard, you could find her at her weekly appointment with the beautician, always keen on keeping her hair and nails looking nice.   

She was known to her grandkids as Grannie Bobbie, and was always willing to play dominos, Yahtzee, and badminton.  Her yard was perfect for climbing trees, picking blueberries, and running through the sprinkler.  She was happy to make their favorite breakfast whether it was cinnamon toast or just Kellogg’s corn flakes with lots of sugar. For lunch she would happily make everyone a wonderful, scrambled egg sandwich. And if you just wanted a snack, you knew you could always find a box of Little Debbie’s in the special “Grannie Drawer” under the microwave.  She made the best potato salad and was the designated giblet gravy maker for all our big holiday meals.    

When her grandkids were in school, she would sneak away from cafeteria work to give them a Dr Pepper or maybe candy bar to have with their lunch.  Everyone wished they had a Granny working in the cafeteria!  

After the grandkids grew and married, she would travel all over Texas to be at the births and birthdays of her Great Grandchildren, who all knew her as Me-Me.  She loved celebrating all holidays and always made Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving special for us! Later when she could no longer travel, she would always join the family gatherings in Canyon and Amarillo, which have gotten bigger and bigger every year and brought her so much joy.  She will be dearly missed by her family and all those who knew her.    

She is preceded in death by her parents, her eight siblings and a son-in-law: Dale Starnes. 

She is survived by her two daughters: Donna Starnes of Oakland, Tennessee and Carolyn Kirkpatrick and husband Jim of Canyon; five grandchildren: Doug Starnes of Oakland, Tennessee, Darren Starnes of Oakland, Tennessee, Sheila Price and husband Jason of Montgomery, Texas, Denise West and husband Joseph of Amarillo and Karla McCall and husband Andy of Abilene; her great grandchildren: Elizabeth Zuniga, Lauren Zuniga, April West, Amy West, Ethan Price, Audrey Price, Allison McCall and James McCall; her brother-in-law: David Weiser and wife Pat of Tulia and several nieces and nephews. 

Memorials may be made to the American Diabetes Association, Alzheimer’s Association or to the BSA Hospice of the Southwest.
