Roberta Grace Womer, “Bobbie”, age 87 of Clermont, FL, passed away on June 6, 2023 at home. Born on April 7, 1936, in Philadelphia, PA to Waldo and Beatrice (Consul) Ellis. Bobbie lived a life of humility, gratitude, and respect for all of creation, and her passing is mourned by all who knew her.
Bobbie was preceded in death by her husband, John W. Womer, daughters Laura Jean Womer and Johnetta Marie Womer, son William Wayne Womer, her parents, sister Marilynn Joan Ellis and brother Clifford Waldo Ellis. Though her loved ones grieve her loss, they take comfort in knowing that she is now reunited with her loved ones in the presence of the Lord.
Bobbie left home at age 16 for work in NYC. At 17 Bobbie married John on Dec. 21, 1953 in Halifax County, N.C. Married 57 yrs (22 yrs as a military wife), she started her career with the Federal Civil Service as a mess hall attendant in Alaska in 1963 and after 23 yrs retired in 1996 with the Defense Finance and Accounting Service as a Payroll Clerk in San Diego, CA.
In 1999, Bobbie and John moved to Leesburg, FL where they made many friends, traveled and cruised a lot. Upon the death of her husband, Bobbie moved to Clermont, FL where she was very active within her community. Bobbie had many hobbies throughout her life, including needlework, ceramics, painting, and cooking. But above all, she cherished spending time with her family and friends, who meant everything to her. Bobbie was a Brownie and Girl Scout leader. She loved to cruise, play cards and do various activities and outings throughout her retirement years.
Bobbie's life was marked by a deep faith in God, which sustained her throughout her life. She worshipped at First Baptist Clermont, where she found strength and comfort in the community of believers.

As we say goodbye to Bobbie, we give thanks for her life and her legacy of love, kindness, and faith. We take comfort in knowing that she is now in the presence of the Lord, reunited with her loved ones who have gone before her. May her memory be a blessing to all who knew her, and may God's grace and peace be with her family and friends during this difficult time.
Bobbie will be interned with her husband John at Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell, FL.
