Bobbie was born in Neshoba County on January 27, 1935, to Alonzo and Sally Ferguson Copeland. She was a member of Zion Chapel Pentecostal Church.

Bobbie is survived by two daughters, Kathy Rogers and husband, Keith; and Kimberly Hamm Fulcher (Jeramy Price); and her son, Ronny Hamm all of Louisville. One of her greatest joys was being “MawMaw” to her two grandsons, Brandon Rogers (Julie); and Jamie McAdory and wife, Jeanie, with whom she enjoyed spending much of her time; as well as seven great-grandchildren: Jade and J. D. Chandler; Kayla, Hayley, Sydney, and Deuce Rogers; and Parker and Hannah Moffett. Also left to mourn her passing is her sister, Hays Kelly; and two sisters-in-law, Allene Peters and Wanda Hamm. She was preceded in death by her husband, Marion Hamm; her parents; two brothers and two sisters.
