- About Us
Bobbie Annie Humphryes, age 74, of Elwood, went to be with our Lord and Savior on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 at her residence in Elwood surrounded by her loving family.
She was born in Hale County Alabama on June 6, 1943, to the late William Edward and Annie Gillian (McCray) Phillips Sr. On April 12, 1960 she married Billy Jack Humphryes in Selma, Alabama and they shared over 57 years of marriage together. She was formerly a home health aide but her most treasured calling in her life was being a wife, momma, and mamaw to her family. Bobbie was currently a member of the Cornerstone Assembly of God and a former long time member of the 3rd Street Church of God. She loved to read, watching old movies, sewing, and was an avid viewer of "Day's of our Lives". Bobbie enjoyed watching baseball, all types of music, and formerly enjoyed riding horses. More than anything Bobbie loved her family and having family dinners and cookouts. Her family was her life and she will be greatly missed by her many loved ones.
