She is survived by her husband Tom of Colfax, daughter Tommi Terpstra, son-in-law Joey Terpstra and granddaughter Oaklee Terpstra all of Prairie City.

I was Tom and Bobbi's best man at their wedding in 1987. When I attended their daughter Tommi's wedding 2 years ago, I noticed the compassion and gentleness Bobbi had for her beloved Gracie. Bobbi was blessed to experience her daughter's wedding and the birth of her granddaughter recently. We are keeping Tom and Bobbi's family in our prayers.

Bobbi was special anyway but when I discovered she too wanted an irish wolfhound we bonded over our love of this unique dog. Instead of just wishing she jumped in and adopted Gracie. When we finally adopted our wolfhound, Bobbi gave me all the tips and tricks to owning a monster dog. I will be forever grateful to her for leading the way and showing me I could have my dream dog.

So Sorry to hear of Bobbi's passing. Rather than waiting for the storm to pass, Bobbi learned to dance in the rain and she did a very fine job of it!
