Bobbie Louise Moen passed away February 26, 2014 just weeks after being diagnosed with cancer. She spent her last days under the watchful care of Riza and Carlito of Cactus Star Assisted Living care home and Hospice of the Valley.
Bobbie was born on July 4th, 1944. She loved the fact that the whole country celebrated her birthday every year.
She was born in Glendale, California, but had the chance to live and travel to locations all around the country, mostly in California, Colorado, and Arizona.
Bobbie had a wide variety of interests. She graduated from Paradise Valley High School, and enjoyed getting together with the other alumni whenever possible. She graduated from dental assisting school, was an accomplished cake decorator, and an avid crafter. She was tireless in her love of games: board games, card games, and especially dominoes!
She met the love of her life, Kermit, on a blind date in 1969 and they were inseparable from that time on. Whether it was driving trucks across the country or escorting kids to the neighborhood schools as proud members of the Paradise Valley School District’s transportation team. Married 40 years, Bobbie and Kerm were most happy when they were together.
Bobbie had a passion for people. She studied American Sign Language at the community college. She and Kerm spent many years organizing and delivering items for a Christmas Angel program for Native American Communities in Northern Arizona.
She loved the Lord Jesus and was an active member of Phoenix First Church of the Nazarene. After Kerm passed away unexpectedly in August 2009, Bobbie realized the need to rally others who had lost their spouses as well so she started a widow’s ministry.
Preceding her in death are her parents Cora and Sheldon Fifield, Sr. and her devoted husband Kerm.
Bobbie is survived by her daughter Endra Moen (Anthony Battista), and grandchildren Tyler Turk (Lauren), Teagan Turk, and Felicia Montgomery, and great-grandson Tommy. She will also be lovingly missed by her brother Sheldon “Bud” Fifield Jr. (Sandy), and sister Antoinette Bordonaro, as well as her nieces and nephews Shelly Woods (David) and Leonard Fifield (Jina) Clark Tatum (Lori), Beth Robbins (Ed) and eleven grand-nieces and nephews.
Services were held at Phoenix First Church of the Nazarene. Interment was at the National Memorial Cemetery in Phoenix, AZ with her husband Kermit, a United States Air Force veteran.
“But when the goodness and the loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” Titus 3:4-7Print Obituary & Condolences
