Obituary of Bobbie Bullard Gray
Bobbie Bullard Gray (Boo to her loving, surrounding family) passed away on January 1, 2022 at home after a courageous two year struggle with Brain Cancer. Bobbie was born on January 11, 1943 to her late and supporting parents, George Edmund Sr. and Margaret Edge Bullard of the Four Points Community of Wade in Cumberland County, NC. She grew up on the family tobacco farm, driving the red tractor and attending the local schools with friends in the community and Center Baptist Church. Bobbie was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother. She enjoyed spending summers at Topsail Beach; attending Clemson Football games plus children’s and grandchildren’s sporting events; and cooking for and socializing with her many lifelong friends and family.
Bobbie was a graduate of Campbell University with a degree in education. From third grade teacher to director of a Graduate Program at Fort Jackson, SC, she was a proud and dedicated educator and professional. Bobbie was always an active member of her community, wherever her life took her and whatever the task that needed to be done. As a member of Asbury United Methodist Church, she particularly enjoyed the fellowship of the Women’s Circle #5, of which she was a 40 year member. She was a help and a friend to everyone she met throughout her life. Bobbie was GOOD and will be remembered forever as such.
Bobbie is survived by a family she adored, Nash (Pete) Gray, Husband of 55 years; Daughters Margaret Bunger of Savannah, GA and Elizabeth Gray of Raleigh, NC; Granddaughters Anna, Jacqueline, and Hillary Bunger; and Grandson Joseph Gray Angello. She is also survived by a brother, George Edmund Bullard Jr., as well as cousins, nephews, and friends, too many to name.
