Following the service, the family welcomes everyone to come celebrate Bobbi’s life at Vincent’s School House (810 W. Snoqualmie Valley Road NE, Carnation). Bobbi is survived by her husband, Ray Haley; son, Raymond Haley; daughter, Robin Haley Lindsay; son-in-law, Michael Lindsay; granddaughters ,Haley and Addison Lindsay; mother, Alice Allen; sister, Terry Allen and brother Bill McClurg. She had been battling breast cancer for the past 14 years and died at home with Ray by her side.
Bobbi was born in Regina, Saskatchewan, to Robert and Lois McClurg. She was adopted by Wayne and Alice Allen at the age of 12, at which time she moved to the U.S. and attended Redmond Jr. High (where she first met Ray). Shortly after graduation from Redmond High School, they got married. Ray joined the service and moved to San Diego where they lived with his brother Joe and Shellie Haley. They then moved to Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, and became proud parents to Raymond and Robin Haley. They ended up settling in Duvall where they raised their family and built a home on Lake Margaret. Bobbi went to cosmetology school and became a hair dresser. She had an infectious personality which drew people to her. Ray and Bobbi were truly soul mates and along with her children, they all called her their best friend.
One of her favorite phrases was “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.”She lived an amazing life, always surrounded by family and friends. She loved to travel, hold her grandchildren, laughing until she cried, listening to music and going to the ocean. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy and undoubtedly kept her so strong and fighting for all of these years.
She was the most beautiful, caring, thoughtful, sensitive, strong, loving, giving, wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt we’ve ever known.She was truly an amazing person. Thank you for all of the wonderful memories.You will always and forever be LOVED and MISSED by all.
“Until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.”
