Roberta A. œBobbie  McKinstry, 82, of Shreve passed away at LifeCare Hospice on May 21, 2015.
She was born at home in Sterling on September 3, 1932 to Rollin and Mabel Siders Wright.   Bobbie was a graduate of Apple Creek High School in 1950.
On September 5, 1959 she married William McKinstry, who survives.
She retired from Regalware and spent most of her life in Wayne County except for 10 years that were spent in Greenville, Texas.   Bobbie and William moved back to Shreve in 1990 and for the past 19 years spent winters in their 5th wheel camper in Largo, FL.
Bobbie was a loving wife and mother and said the very best times were the ones spent with her family, especially all of the little ones.   She loved watching and feeding the birds with her favorites being bluebirds and hummingbirds.   She also enjoyed reading and jigsaw puzzles (there was always one on the dining table to work on).
Along with her husband, Bobbie is survived by her children Nicki (Jeff) Drown, Michael (Marsha) Kendall both of Wooster, Richard (Gina) Kendall of Sterling, Bryan (Kim) McKinstry of Greenville, TX and Steven (Michelle) McKinstry of Monroe, MI; 17 grandchildren; 24 great-grandchildren and a sister Myrna Seigley.
She was preceded in death by her parents and a grandson Michael Kendall Carr.  
Funeral services will be held on Tuesday May 26, 2015 at 1:00 PM at McIntire, Bradham & Sleek Funeral Home, 216 E. Larwill St., Wooster with Chaplain Tom Michaels officiating.   Interment will follow in Sherwood Memorial Gardens.   Friends will be received at the funeral home on Tuesday from 12:00 Noon until the time of service.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to LifeCare Hospice, 1900 Akron Rd., Wooster, OH 44691.   The great team of so many wonderful caring people made the last year and final days with COPD comfortable for her until the end.
