Bobbie Marie Brackeen

Bobbie Marie Brackeen of Shawnee, Oklahoma, passed away on February 18, 2024. She was 80 years old. 

Bobbie was born on October 25, 1943, in Chickasha, Oklahoma, to Robert and Marie Roysden.  

She was preceded in death by her parents, Marie and Robert Roysden and her brother, Walt Roysden. 

Bobbie is survived by her husband, Dennis; children--Mike Burch, Zachary Burch and wife, Linda, Teddy Burch and wife, Dena, Geoffrey Burch and wife, Sandra, and Rhett Brackeen and wife, Meagan. Her grandchildren are Andrew Burch, Brendon Weaver, Jacob Weaver, Gabrielle Weaver, Destiny Howard, Maris Howard, Margo Brackeen, and Ruby Brackeen; great grandchildren are Adam Stroope, Aurora Stroope, Asher Stroope, and Ava Weaver.   

Bobbie was a people person. She was always quick to strike up a conversation and establish friendships with folks she had just met. She was eager to lend a hand and help others through any situation they faced, and this trait followed her into her career. Her first passion was nursing. She practiced as an RN for 20 years after receiving her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Oklahoma. Her second passion was her children. She left nursing to raise her five sons when she and Dennis moved to Shawnee.  

Bobbie was an avid reader as well as a connoisseur of all things British, specifically British television and print mysteries. She also loved to crochet afghans, work on crossword puzzles, collect dolls, and create outfits for them. She won many awards over the years for her hobbies. Bobbie also loved classic movies and the music of the 50s and 60s.  

Bobbie was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and was part of the congregation in Shawnee. Although her health limited her, she truly appreciated the love from those in her spiritual family. Her faith in Jehovah and His promises were the most important things in her life, and it brought her great strength and comfort even as her health worsened in recent years. She was confident in God’s promise of a new world to come when there will be no more anxiety, sickness or death. She loved to talk about what these promises meant to her and to help others to know that better times are ahead. 

She will be greatly missed by all who love her, but she would want all to know that she will only be gone for a little while. She knew that the fulfillment of John 5:28,29 which says: “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out...” is assured.
