Bobbie, as she was known, was born in Winston-Salem on November 4, 1930 to James Winfred and Elvin Jeannette Pfaff. She attended Reynolds High School, received a bachelor of arts from Salem College and master of social work from Tulane University. Her kind and generous nature led her to a professional career in service to others in the field of social work. She concluded her career as senior supervisor at the Rowan County Department of Social Services. Bobbie was a lifetime member of Christ Moravian Church and a descendant of founding members. She loved music and played in the Moravian Brass Band alongside her father, sister and many other family members.
