April 19, 1924 - February 24, 2019
Our sweet Mama, Nola Roberta Grizzle – Bobbie – passed away February 24, 2019 at the age of 94. She was born in Post, Texas to Joseph and Augusta Tipton. She moved to Lubbock, Texas where she met the love of her life, C.G. Grizzle. She and C.G. enjoyed a loving marriage of 50 years until he passed away in 1995. Bobbie always enjoyed music. She had an affinity for classical music in any form, mixed with an occasional Tennessee Ernie Ford or big band record. One of her greatest treasures was an upright piano that she loved to play and sing hymns. She loved mystery novels, crossword puzzles and all types of crafts, but especially crochet and knitting. Numerous doilies now adorn the tables and furniture of much of her immediate family and extended family. And more still is packed away, because no one could bear to get rid of something she had touched and worked on and loved. Granny Grizzle always said her biggest talent was her cooking. And she did make a mean batch of biscuits and gravy! But while she was an excellent cook, her biggest talent was her ability to love unconditionally and never be afraid to show it. She treated everyone with dignity and respect and didn’t have a mean bone in her body. Her family always came first, and it is that family who is now heartbroken. The family takes comfort in knowing that she is in heaven with Daddy and Helen, and that she will never suffer pain, loss, or nursing home food again. Best Mom ever! Mama was preceded in death by her husband C.G. Grizzle of League City, Texas and her daughter Helen Cast, also of League City. She is survived by her son Charles Grizzle and wife Nancy of Fairfield, Texas, her son Bruce Grizzle and wife Jane of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, her daughter Barbara Grizzle of Tomball, Texas, eight grandchildren and ten great grandchildren. Pallbearers will be her five grandsons, Brett Grizzle of Flower Mound, Texas, Brian Grizzle of Lake Dallas, Texas, David Grizzle of Austin, Texas, Stuart Medack of Angleton, Texas, Joshua Cast, of Seabrook Texas, and her great grandson Gavin Grizzle of Flower Mound, Texas. The family received friends 9:00am - 10:00am on Thursday, February 28, 2019 at Forest Park East Funeral Home, 21620 Gulf Freeway, Webster, Texas, 77598. A Celebration of Life was held at 10:00am, followed by a committal service in Forest Park East Cemetery.
