October 20, 1942 — March 18, 2023

Bobbie Deanna Wilkerson Owens, of Clyde Texas, passed into the arms of her Lord and Savior on March 18, 2023 in Abilene, Texas. Visitation for the family and friends will be held Monday, March 20, 2023 at Elmwood Funeral Home, 5750 Highway 277 South, in Abilene, Texas from 6-8 PM.

Bobbie was born on October 20, 1942, in Bloomfield, Missouri to Robert and Goldie Pry. She married Donald M. Wilkerson on August 18, 1962. They were married for 40 wonderful years, until his passing on August 30, 2002. During her marriage to Don, they lived in Missouri, Louisiana, Germany, and back to Missouri, before settling in Abilene, Texas. She and Don were faithful members of Trinity Baptist Church, where they taught Sunday School, Childrens Church, and worked in the nursery, as well as running the van/bus ministry.
Bobbie loved her family, and enjoyed hosting holiday meals at her house, which always lasted well into the night, and sometimes even early morning, and resulted in the grandkids passing out around the house, especially if Yahtzee! or Phase 10 were brought out.
She married James "Jim" Owens on July 14, 2005. They were faithful members of Hillcrest Church of Christ, and resided in Clyde, Texas. They were both members of Central Texas Gem and Mineral Society, where Bobbie really enjoyed making earrings and necklaces and going to the Rock and Gem shows.
Bobbie is preceded in death by her parents, Robert and Goldie Pry; her husband, Don Wilkerson; her mother-in-law, Faye Wilkerson; and her granddaughter, Laura Wilkerson.
She is survived by her husband, James "Jim" Owens; her son, Gaylon Wilkerson and wife Angie; her son, Darrin Wilkerson and wife Brenda; her granddaughter, Kayla Vaughan and husband Toby; her grandson, Ethan Wilkerson; her granddaughter, Becca McCann and husband Brad; her grandson, Cole Wilkerson and wife Emily; her grandsons, Levi Bidwell and Colton Marshall; her granddaughter, Carly Tucker; 5 great-grandchildren; as well as many cousins, nieces, nephews, and her bonus children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren from her marriage to Jim Owens.
A special thanks to Clyde Nursing Home and Northern Oaks Nursing Home staff for their care during Bobbie's last few months on this Earth.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Volunteer Fire Department in Clyde, Texas.
