She was the “Avon lady of Champlain Park” for over 30 years. Bobbie was also a tireless volunteer in the community for many different organizations. She will be greatly missed by everyone whose life she touched.
Her hobbies included crossword puzzles, reading, walking and bowling. She was proud to be able to say she threw a bowling ball on her 85th birthday!
Bobbie is survived by her daughter, Lynnette Nicholl and her partner Bradley Conklin of Gouverneur, 2 grandsons, Tyler (Becky) of Gouverneur and Trevor of Denver, CO, a great grandson, Wyatt and a sister, Beverly O’Connor of Keene. A marriage to David Scales ended in divorce.
