Friends and family are invited to visitation on Thursday, October 13, 2016 from 5:00 pm â€" 7:00 pm at Cason Monk-Metcalf Funeral Directors. Bobbie lived in Nacogdoches all her life. She was a devoted Congregational Methodist and enjoyed taking care of others. In her younger years she worked for 16 years at the Peanut Shack which she often referred to as the Nut House! When she retired she enjoyed her grandchildren and great grandchildren, and they loved her too. During her free time she could be found making quilts for her family, baking desserts, gardening or planting flowers. It seems like she was given a green thumb to make things grow, and she found pleasure in that. She had a wit about her that kept everyone in her family smiling. They will miss her, but they look forward to seeing her again. Bobbie is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Billy Ray Harris; son, James "Bubba" Harris; two brothers. She is survived by her daughter, Jeannie Harris; granddaughter, Jennifer Quinn and husband Terry; grandson, Jeffrey Harris and wife Brenda; great grandchildren, Brandon Harris, Preston Harris, Brooke Harris, Landan Harris, Christopher Quinn, T.J. Quinn, Caleb James Quinn; great-great grandson, Karson Harris; three sisters; one brother; and many other family members.
