Roberta was known to her Florida friends as Bobbie, and also know to her California family as "Tug", (short for Tugger, as she couldn't say Sugar, which is what her immediate family called her when she was a baby, "and it stuck", for life). She was married to Timothy V. Sinkwich, in August, 1966 and they resided in Baldwin Park, CA. She worked at her husband's family business, Viking Distributors, as a receptionist and bookkeeper until they divorced in 1972. She remained single throughout life, until her passing. Bobbie had no children, but had a wonderful love and affection for her nieces and nephews. She loved animals very much and while living in Southern California embraced life with her friendly beagle "Renway" (aka "ReRe"). Later in Brooksville she shared her home with her large and zany housemate hounds, "Bear & Roxie", a chow mix. Her beside cat, Jack, was with her during some of her difficult moments. In her youth, Bobbie was very active and loved riding motorcycles in Southern California. From her Brooksville home, she enjoyed weekend "rides" with Tim and friends. In the early evenings friends could find her enjoying a time on her porch sharing the evening breeze and stories with friends and neighbors. In reflection, Bobbie's friends often commented that she was a very giving and caring person and the 1st to volunteer to help out a friend in need, at times pushing herself beyond her physical limitations "to do" for others. In lieu of flowers, donations in Bobbie's name to the local Chapter of the Humane Society and/or the ASPCA are encouraged. A memorial service and spreading of ashes will be scheduled at a date/time/location TBD. Rest in Peace Roberta Sue Sinkwich.
