Bobbie, known to many as “Bobbie Jean” was born Feb. 27, 1953, in Fort Worth, Texas to Steve and Betty Kemp. She wasted no time as she began making her mark on the world. As a little girl, Bobbie and her brother, Bubba spent many care free days with their father, Steve, at the family business, the Fort Worth Horse and Mule Commission. Bobbie inherited her gift for gab from her father, Steve, who was quite possibly the world’s greatest horse trader and her head for business from her mother Betty, who was the Director of Finance at Harris Hospital.
?
Bobbie was a proud Class of ’71 Northside High School alumnus and the consummate social butterfly. She was very outgoing and never met a stranger, so naturally, her high school years were spent forging friendships that would last her a lifetime. Bobbie’s commitment to Northside High School never wavered after graduation; she was instrumental in the planning of her high school class reunions and kept in touch with many of her classmates that she lovingly referred to as her “peeps”.
?
After graduating from high school, Bobbie enrolled at Texas Woman’s University where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Education. Bobbie then furthered her education by earning a Master’s Degree, and ultimately her Administrators Certification from Texas Christian University. Her love for the Horned Frogs ran deep as she was a 20 plus year football season ticket holder, attended numerous sporting and alumni events, and never missed a chance to profess her love or provide unwavering support to her alma mater.
?
Bobbie’s passion for education manifested itself in a 43-year career as a special education teacher, school counselor, and college professor. Bobbie was a positive influence and shaped the lives of countless students. [She was counselor at Kennedale High School working under Principal Ed Farmer, later becoming an adjunct professor with TCC]
?
Bobbie’s devotion to her students was only eclipsed by her steadfast devotion to her daughter Mechele. Bobbie was always Mechele’s biggest fan and supported her in any activity or endeavor she participated in. Despite all of Bobbie’s impressive professional accomplishments, she considered her greatest accomplishment to be the woman and mother Mechele became. Lord knows Bobbie loved Mechele but she may have loved her grandsons more. Burke and Wyatt were her pride and joy and she faithfully attended all their school and sporting events, boasting about their accomplishments.
?
It may sound like a cliche, but in Bobbie’s case it was the truth; her smile lit up the room, her laugh was contagious, and even at 65 years old, she still had a mischievous twinkle in her eye that made her the life of the party. To know Bobbie was to love Bobbie. She will be missed by all of those that had the pleasure and privilege to know her.?

Bobbie Jean Kemp Sposato was preceded in death by her father, Steve B. Kemp.

Johnson; brother, Steve T. “Bubba” Kemp and wife, Teresa; nephews, Brady Kemp and wife, Kristi and Patrick Kemp; as well as numerous relatives and countless friends.
