Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Barbara Sommer, (Bobbi) age 91, mother, daughter, wife, lover, friend, author, artist, teacher, and comedian, graduated from this earthly plane on September 8, 2023, with dignity, grace, and a smile on her face. She was surrounded by her family and loved ones and among her final words were “I wouldn’t change a thing.” She left us laughing and crying.

She leaves behind three grateful sons, Guy Lichty (Suzanne Zur), Jay Lichty (Corrie Woods), and George Sommer (Vicki Sommer), and too many friends to list. She also leaves gratitude and love to those who took care of her in her final years. Thank You, Steve and Marie. She will be remembered with love, laughter and smiles. May we all be so blessed.
