She grew up in Wichita Falls, where she met and married her high school sweetheart, Barton Lockhart, on January 30, 1953. Together they had four children, Debbie, Cindy, Bart and Chris. While living in Ardmore, Oklahoma, she and Barton started a family business, Chem Clean, which manufactured car wash products. After moving to Corsicana, Bobbie owned Toyland Hobby and Craft. She enjoyed helping customers with their crafts, gift selections, and picture framing. After selling the business, she and Barton started another car wash products company, Blendco, where she was an integral part of management. Bobbie loved designing magnificent flower beds, buying and selling antiques, walking for her health, and spending time at Cedar Creek Lake with her family. She spent many hours in her greenhouse caring for the beautiful orchids she so loved.
Bobbie was preceded in death by her parents; Jewel D. Martin and Peter Mason Martin, and her sisters; JoAnn Lewis, and Mary Lou Lees. She is survived by her husband, Barton, and her children; Debbie Kelley (Leslie) of Trinidad, Cindy Jorgenson, Bart Lockhart, and Chris Lockhart all of Corsicana.
