Bobbie E. Sullivan
By Eva Jimenez, Reserve Book Room

I don't know if there is anyone around that remembers Bobbie. I worked with her, but then again I’ve been at the library since the age of 10....

Bobbie Edeline Sullivan died on September 20, 2004, of rheumatoid arthritis. Her last months were at the Quiburi Mission Samaritan Center in Benson, Arizona. Bobbie worked at the old library (Lassen Hall) hiring and placing student assistants in the different departments of the library. At that time student assistant employment was part of the Circulation Department. Bobbie met Bill Sullivan while working night shift in Circulation; were married and moved to Prescott, Arizona and later to Tucson. After Bill's death, Bobbie remained in Tucson but later moved to Wilcox, AZ to be near her son, Robert, who has cancer. She is survived by her son, his wife Diana, and her granddaughter, Claire.
