After graduating from Morgantown High School in 1953, she became a proud member of the US Air Force, serving as a Radio Repairman. Bobbie worked for many years at Quality Glass in Van Voorhis and later retired from Mylan Pharmaceuticals after 17 years of employment in Inspection.

Bobby Lee loved playing cards or games with family, a good bonfire, feeding her birds, and a picnic. Living a life of simple pleasures, she rejected material things as "just something else to dust".
