Bobbi Pitcher: In Memoriam

In August Westchase lost Bobbi Pitcher, Village Green’s dedicated voting member.

Bobbi, a longtime resident of Village Green, passed away on Aug. 29, less than eight weeks after being diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. She spent the last two weeks of her life in home hospice, surrounded by family and friends.

Bobbi was a friendly and upbeat neighbor who was dedicated to the Westchase community. For the past several years, she volunteered as Village Green’s voting member and kept the neighborhood appraised of its day-to-day issues. Village Green residents might remember Bobbi from her evening bike rides around the neighborhood with her husband Dave and their boxer named Bogie.

Bobbi and her family moved to Village Green in 2001. She worked as an occupational therapy assistant, initially at clinics with children and later branching out into home health care for adults. She also volunteered with Canines for Christ and brought her dog for visits to Suncoast Kid’s Place, where children receive support following the death of someone significant in their lives.

Bobbi grew up in the Maryland/Washington D.C. region. She moved to the Gulf Coast of Mississippi in the late 1970s and worked as a technical writer for the U.S. Geological Survey. In 1990 she married David Pitcher and they moved to the Tampa area four years later. She and Dave loved visiting Dunedin, listening to live music, and taking Bogie to the dog beaches at Honeymoon Island and Fort DeSoto State Park.

Bobbi is survived by her husband Dave, her two children, Danielle, who lives in Mississippi, and Aaron, who has been living in the Ocala area managing and training race horses. She is also survived by her mother, Lucile Creel, who lives in Delaware. Bobbi was a great friend and neighbor to those who knew her. She will be missed.
