Bobbie was the loving wife to Mr. John Finley and was happily married for 45 years. The two met on a blind date that was set up by relatives. She was a loving, kind soul, that tried to always see the best in everyone. She was adventurous, quick to laugh, and adored animals. Bobbie had a love for fishing, cooking, watching Jeopardy, and The Price is Right. Bobbie attended high school at St. Joseph’s Academy and graduated from the University of Florida. Once out of college, she pursued a career in banking. Bobbie spent 16 years working for Atlantic National Bank in Jacksonville, Florida. After moving back to Columbia, she worked at First National Bank until retirement. In her free time, Bobbie enjoyed reading and crocheting. She donated hundreds of handmade baby hats to the MUSC Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and lap throws to residents in local nursing homes. She had a servant’s heart and cared deeply for others.

Wise (Russell); cousin, Dottie Crutchfield; dear friend, Rinthia Tyre; and many loving great-grandchildren. In addition to her husband and parents, she is preceded in death by brother, George F.
