Bobbie Buck

Bobbie Lou Martin Byrd Buck went to her Heavenly home on Friday, December 8, 2023.  A celebration of her beautiful life will be Saturday, December 16, 2023, at First Baptist Church Diana, Texas at 12:00 pm. She will be buried at Mattox Cemetery in Diana, Texas assisted by Croley Funeral Home in Gilmer, TX. 
 
Bobbie was born on February 4, 1935, in Upshur County to Harrison Shearl and Effie Lou Martin. She graduated from New Diana High School in 1952 before attending Kilgore College, UT Tyler and graduating Summa Cum Laude from the University of Louisiana Monroe.  She was the accountant for Louisiana Technical College, West Monroe, and retired in June 1999. 
 
She was preceded in death by parents, Harrison Shearl Martin and Effie Lou Martin, brothers Rex Wayland Martin and Max Howell Martin, husbands, Dell Roy Byrd and Charles Richard Buck, granddaughter Rebekah Lee Byrd and stepdaughter Melinda Buck Hines.  She is survived by daughter Pamela (Frank) Cannon, sons Audis (Deborah) Byrd, Ronny (Amy) Byrd, sister Deborah Martin
Riddle, nine grandchildren, nineteen great grandchildren, and stepdaughter Kim (Phil) Curry. 
 
Honorary pall bearers will be her grandsons and the spouses of her granddaughters. 
 
Mimi, the name her family knew her by, was the essence of light, love, and positive encouragement for all that knew her.  She was fueled by her faith in Jesus Christ and was never too tired or too busy to speak truth and love to anyone that needed uplifting.  She was faithful to pray for her family and anyone else that had a need, and she loved to rejoice with us in all the happy moments of our lives.  She was the example of a life well lived.  She was our family’s treasure, and we will miss her. 
 
Memorials can be given to Seeker Springs Ministry in Eros, LA or Mattox Cemetery in Diana, TX.
