Our mother Barbra (Bobbie) Munter passed away peacefully on November 24, 2022 in Sun Lakes, Az. surrounded by her family.
Mom grew up in Philadelphia, Pa. where during her high school years she was a standout basketball player. Her athleticism included a love for bowling, a passion she shared with our father Bernie. She was talented enough to be a semi-professional bowler with her career getting derailed by having four children. Mom always put us children first.
In the late 1970’s Mom and Dad made a bold decision to leave the East Coast and begin on a new adventure in perpetually sunny and warm Arizona. It was here that Mom rediscovered the outdoors and a new passion; namely golf. She told us she was a shitty golfer (her words) but she loved the game and she loved the competition. Mom was always fiercely competitive whether it was golf, poker, mah-jong or scrabble. As her fellow card playing “girls” will tell you, winning was important to our Mother.
Mom could be stubborn and direct at times but she was always loving when it came to her 4 kids, Rob (Sharon), Andy (Julie), Susan (Darrell) and Joel (Sandy), her 11 grandkids, and her 8 great grandchildren.
Mom was always a rock in our family and supported and loved each and every one of us throughout her 90 years. She touched many people in her lifetime and was caring and thoughtful when it came to others. Her desire was to have a very small family get-together following her cremation. There will not be a service and Mom’s wish in lieu of flowers, if you were so moved, was to make a donation to the St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital in her name. Thank you.
Mom, we love you, we will miss you and we will continue to hold you in our hearts everyday.
Rob & Sharon, Andy & Julie, Susan & Darrell and Joel & Sandy.
