Bobbie Ruth Forman
Bobbie Ruth Forman of Mexia, cherished mother and aunt, passed away Saturday, May 3, 2014 in Waco. By her request no funeral services will be held. The family will have a private ceremony at a later date.
Ms. Bobbie was born April 20, 1937, at home in Teague, to Robert Henry Forman Sr. and Martha Ruth (nee Hayes). She graduated from John H. Reagan High School in Houston in 1955, and shortly after married Daniel Thomas Courteau and moved to Los Angeles. Many years later she felt the tug of her native soil and returned to Texas, first to Dallas where she worked for the schools as an office lady, before retiring full-time in Mexia.
She is survived by a brother, Gerald, of Houston; nieces, Dorothea Forman of Corsicana and JoAnna (Stephen) Studebaker of Mexia; son, Michael David Courteau of Mexia, and daughter, Suzanne Courteau of Arcata, Calif.
The family extends its thanks to Mexia LTC for mom’s final month of care, and the city of Mexia for many wonderful memories. Rest in peace, Mom.
