Bobbie Frances McCullough “Mama” Baine, 78, of Warner Robins, GA, entered into eternal rest on Saturday, September 18, 2010, after a tough fight due to a stroke. Bobbie was born in Newton County, Covington, GA, to the late Thurman and Oma Allen McCullough. She lived and worked most of her adult life in Hendersonville, NC, until her retirement from the Henderson County Clerk of Court in 1994. After her retirement, she moved to Warner Robins to live with her daughter.
Bobbie is survived by her only child, Taletha Diane Capps and her husband Charles W. “Bill” Capps; granddaughter, Jamie Elizabeth Lenz, and grandson, Jordan Edward Lenz, all of Warner Robins, GA. She also leaves behind several nieces and nephews; close “family” friends, Scott and Cheryl Gunn; her “adopted daughter”, Sherry Aytes Meserve; her “adopted sons”, Dr. Ray Greer, Kenny Aytes, and Lance Watson; and her canine companions, Harley and Buster. Bobbie was preceded in death by her brother, Ralph McCullough, and her sister, Betty “Lou” Thompson. She was married for 25 years to the late James “Jim” Baine. They remained close friends after their divorce, until his untimely death in May of this year. “Mama” Bobbie was known for her love of family, being a protective grandmother, her sweet smile, doing her puzzle books, watching her “stories”, and cheering for the Atlanta Braves. She was a Southern Baptist and devoted to her Christian faith.
A tribute memorial service to celebrate her life will be held on top of Mount Pisgah, NC on Saturday, September 25, 2010, at 2:00 p.m. Memorial contributions may be made in her honor to the National Stroke Foundation or Four Seasons Compassion for Life, 571 S. Allen Road, Flat Rock, NC 28731.
