Ware - Bobbi (Thompson) Goudreau, passed away on Wednesday, November 16th 2022, at Baystate Wing Memorial Hospital.
Bobbi was most passionate about her family. She lived her life for her children – she was the utmost happiest surrounded by family. She taught her children that family was everything, if you have each other, you have everything you need in life.
Bobbi was best known for her ‘hugs’ and being ‘gram’ to everyone she met. In 2001 when D&D Fitness Factory opened its doors – Bobbi became the official greeter. When she met someone, she told them ‘I don’t shake hands – I’m a hugger!’. Her hugs is what D&D is known for. When patrons walked through the doors – the first one they looked for was Bobbi ‘Gram’. Once they got their hug – the day began!
Bobbi loved so many. Her heart was huge – and her smile was bright. She loved from her core, her soul. Her eyes lit up the room and everyone wanted to be near and to be loved by her.
