Roberta “Bobbie” Grover

August 23, 1924 - May 26, 2012

Age 87, of Hunt, NY, died May 26, 2012 at her home in the company of her family.

She was born August 23, 1924 in Perry, daughter of the late Raymond G. and Lillian Craig Shores. She grew up in Hunt, NY and was valedictorian of her class at Nunda Central School. Bobbie married Paul L. Grover, Sr. on September 5, 1942. After World War II, Bobbie and her husband built their house on Short Tract Road. Her sons would always joke with her about living in a construction project for the first ten years of their life.

Bobbie was school secretary at Nunda Central School for 28 years and took great joy in seeing all the students grow and progress. After retirement, Bobbie held court on her side porch enjoying her flowers and watching the birds in her feeder. She was an avid New York Yankees fan.

She was predeceased by her husband, Paul L. Grover, Sr. and her sister, Helen Reynolds. The family would like to thank the network of neighbors and friends who have helped Bobbie over the years including Patti and John Spring, George and Karen Lucas, Patti Galbraith, Bob and Marjorie Reynolds and Donny Claude.
