She also leaves behind her beloved niece Tara Devine and nephews Peter Zimmerman, Max Zimmerman, Matt Devine and Ty Zimmerman. Bobbie worked as a Senior Paralegal for Maquet Cardiovascular in San Jose. She was a valued employee who always made time to stay connected with her family and friends. She enjoyed knitting, sewing and making beautiful jewelry that she loved to wear as much as give as gifts. She was known for her kind and generous heart, big smile and contagious laugh. She will be deeply missed by all who were lucky to have known her. Family and friends are invited to attend a private 1:30pm Celebration of Her Life on Saturday, July 26, 2014 at Campanella restaurant; one of Bobbie's favorite restaurants to dine and connect with good friends.

Memories Timeline


  1. I still hear her laugh when I think about my sister. No matter what your mood, her laugh would always lift your spirits. As much as I want to cry now, I can’t because her laugh is in my head.
    I know what she is saying to us all right now…”DON’T make a big deal about this!”
    No matter what your faith is, there is NO way she went anyplace but a happy, peaceful destination. She deserved it as much as anyone. She always had a smile for us all.

    I love you Bobbie and will miss you so much…Mike

  2. I know that Bobbie is with the Lord the one time I met her she was full of life she had a great laugh she will be missed .God bless her family and friends .Sal.xoxo

  3. Bobbie ~ so witty, generous and always happy. The Zimmerman family reunions were started as her idea and each year we had a wonderful gathering. She was also a joyful addition to our Southern California Christmas celebrations. Bobbie…we will miss you and think of you every day. Thank you for making all of our lives a little more special and a whole lot more fun. Heaven has gained a beautiful soul. Love your ‘older sister’, Lori

  4. It was impossible not to be happy when Bobbie was around. She was the kind of person who raised everyone’s spirits, so full of fun, laughter and wit. I see her big smile even now in my mind’s eye. It is so hard to believe that her big, loving heart has been stilled forever. But in a very real sense, it has not been stilled at all, because her warmth and generosity live on in the hearts and minds of those of us who love her so much. Bobby, you will be remembered and missed.

  7. Bobbie, you left us too soon. Words cannot express how deeply saddened I am about your passing. But if you were here you would tell me to move on and enjoy life. I know you are an angel in Heaven watching over everyone. My prayers and thoughts I extend to your family and friends. May God bless you and those you have left behind. Thank you for the memories and for being a friend.


  8. My deepest sympathy to the Zimmerman family. I remember when I first met Bobbie when we were students at Marquette – I thought she was so interesting and fun. We had been friends ever since that day in the student union. She had the best laugh! Bobbie was very proud of her family, especially her niece and nephews. And she loved her crafts – thank you Bobbie for teaching me how to knit! I have many fun memories of Bobbie and will miss her.
