SHASTEEN, Bobbie Scott, of Tullahoma, passed this life on Saturday, Jan. 7, 2017, at Life Care Center at the age of 85. She was born in Lincoln County to the late George and Grace Allen Scott. Miss Bobbie, as she was often referred to, worked as a court reporter early in her career, then went on to work in several law offices in Tullahoma and Manchester. She loved being a legal secretary and was very good at what she did. Also, in earlier years, she was very active in the Community Playhouse, Business and Professional Women's Club and was often seen campaigning for her favorite candidate in local and statewide elections. Miss Bobbie always loved entertaining friends and family and enjoyed having her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren over for large holiday meals. She was a very good cook and inspired several of her granddaughters to follow in her love of cooking. She was a very independent woman and usually spoke her mind, but she also had a great sense of humor that her grandchildren especially loved. In addition to her parents, Miss Bobbie was preceded in death by her husband of 53 years, Clifford Shasteen Jr.; one brother, Donald Scott; and one sister, Brenda Wichman. She is survived by one sister, Kay Fowler, of Hagerstown, Maryland; four children, Gaye Felts and her husband Mark, of Tullahoma, Deanna Ellis and her husband David, of Hendersonville, North Carolina, Scott Shasteen and his wife Jamie, of Tullahoma, and Richard Shas-teen and his wife Pam, of Tullahoma; eight grandchildren, Korie Felts Mattasits, Craig Felts, Anderson Ellis, Lauren Ellis Keplinger, Caroline Ellis, Jackie Shasteen, Alivia Shasteen, and Jackson Shasteen; 10 great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.
