Bobbie Dunlap passed away peacefully in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, on May 29, 2017, at the age of 93. Bobbie was the widow of George William Dunlap of Versailles, Kentucky. Born in Lexington, Kentucky, on May 5, 1924, to Robert and Ruby Foster, Bobbie was a 1942 graduate of Lafayette High School in Lexington. For many years Bobbie lived in Versailles and retired from The Woodford Bank and Trust Company, and she was an active member of the First Christian Church. Married in 1952, Bobbie and George enjoyed many years working hard and raising their children on Caneland Farm on Paynes Mill Road in Versailles. She moved to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, after George's death to be near her children and grandchildren but her heart never left Kentucky. She never missed a chance to watch her Kentucky basketball and the Kentucky Derby. One of her greatest pleasures was cooking and entertaining for family and friends and she self-published a cookbook of her favorite recipes for each of her grandchildren. All her grandchildren agreed that "Nana Bobbie" turned the most mundane things into stories that were spun with magic. She was full of life and had the best one-liners. She was also the perfect amount of sass and was never afraid to speak her mind." Bobbie is survived by her son, David Dunlap (Nancy), of Jackson, WY, and daughter Sami Robinson (Steve), of Jackson, WY; grandchildren Anne Barrans (Tim) of Bend, OR, Taylor Robinson (Anna) of Bend, OR, Carson Dunlap (Katie) of Corvallis, OR, and Calee Dunlap of Monterey, CA, and great-granddaughters Annalisa and Charlotte Grace Barrans of Bend, OR. She was preceded in death by her husband, George William Dunlap, her sisters, Evelyn Valette and Edith Denison, and brothers Robert Foster Jr., Fred Foster and John Foster. A graveside service will be held on Saturday, June 3, at 11 a.m. at Pisgah Cemetery in Versailles. There will be light refreshments following the service. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to First Christian Church of Versailles, KY. (Paid obituary)
