Bobbie Ann is survived by her children; Michael (Sue) Speno, Janet (Steve) Bodner, her grandchildren Michael Gauthier, Michele (Chris) Whipple, Matthew Gauthier, Mary Bodner, Stephanie Speno, Nicholas Speno, James (Melinda) DeChick,  Greg DeChick, Sara (Spencer) Layton; Great Children; Jordan, Gavin, Nicholas, Lucas, Jeffery, Connor, Jax, Hadley, Makenzie and Everett;  a niece  Terri Casbarro, nephew James (Tina) Casbarro several great nieces, nephews and cousins.
