Roberta "Bobbie" Ann Boyd, age 68, died on Tuesday, January 11, 2022, at Ascension St. John Hospital in Detroit, Michigan. She was born on March 5, 1953, in Detroit, Michigan to the late Van and the late Virginia (nee: Legeret) Ryskewicz.

Bobbie grew up in Detroit and attended Warren High for High School. After obtaining her GED, she went on to work for the State of Michigan for over 10 years in various agencies. In 1992, she began her career as a homemaker.

In her free time, Bobbie enjoyed painting, gardening, and crafting. She was Room Mom when the kids were in school. Her family will remember her as a bargain hunter who loved shopping for deals.

Bobbie loved animals. She leaves behind 6 cats and 2 dogs. If she was out on the road and saw a stray, she would stop, pick them up, and take them to the local police station or vet.

She loved anywhere near or on the water and enjoyed her vacations to the Bahamas and Charleston. Although the vacations were memorable, her favorite trips were the yearly camping ones with her beloved family and her trips to the family farm in Charlotte. Bobbies favorite place to visit was Mackinaw Island where she travelled yearly for over 30 years with her husband and family.

Bobbie was the loving wife of Mark. Dear mother of Jessica Boyd and Tracy Naimish. Beloved stepmother of Emily (Mikael) Rubio and Ian Boyd. Devoted grandmother of Gabriel Farley, Anthony Manino, Aiden Martinez, and Christopher Martinez. Cherished step-grandmother of Sebastian Rubio and Lukas Rubio. Adoring sister of Dennis (Joann) Ryzkewicz and sister-in-law of Sue (Tom) Lacy. She is further survived by many nieces and nephews.

Visitation for Bobbie will take place on Monday, January 17, 2022, from 10 am until the time of her Funeral Service at 12 noon at Chas. Verheyden, Inc., 16300 Mack Ave., Grosse Pointe Park, MI 48230. Interment will immediately follow at Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Detroit, MI.

Memorial contributions can be made in Bobbie's name to the Michigan Humane Society, michiganhumane.org/donate
