Obituary for Bobbi Jo McPherson Evers

Bobbi Jo McPherson Evers, 71, of Fayetteville, GA passed away June 29, 2018 in her home surrounded by her family. Bobbi Jo was born on July 20, 1946 in Attapulgus, Georgia to the late Willie Wiles and Minnie Pauline McPherson.

Bobbi Jo is survived by her sister and her brother-in-law, Jean and Jimmy White of Fayetteville; children, Tanya Arrington and her husband William Ashley Arrington, Misty Dawn Rutcosky, and Randall Glenn Evers all of Fayetteville; her grandchildren, Megan Arnold and her husband Lt. Stephen Arnold of McDonough, Dane Knopp of LaGrange, and Pierce Rutcosky of New Jersey; her nephews, Hal White and his wife Michelle of Brooks, along with their children Heather, Haleigh, Brittany and Hunter and nephew Jim White of Fayetteville; her sister-in-law, Celine McPherson and her children Destiny, Melanie, Lacey and Bert Paul McPherson of McDonough; and many more nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews across the country.

Bobbi Jo was the youngest of nine children. She attended high school in Oviedo, FL and Stephen County High School in Toccoa, Georgia and graduated in 1964. She attended college at Georgia Southwestern College in Americus, Georgia where she studied Early Childhood Education. Bobbi Jo moved to Fayetteville in 1980 with her three children. She has been a member of the Fayetteville First Baptist church for over 30 years. She made sure that not only were her children raised in the church, but also her grandchildren. She considered her Sunday School Group as a second family. There is no doubt that she is now in the presence of God, wrapped in His loving arms.

Bobbi worked for the Department of Justice for 29 years. Her first position was a contract typist and then quickly landed a full-time position with the United States Parole Commission. After leaving the Parole Commission when the organization was dissolved, she secured a position as a Group Assistant for the Drug Enforcement Administration. Her years at the DEA were some of the best of her professional life. During her tenure at the DEA, her group was responsible for apprehending countless numbers of “bad guys”. She was passionate about her career and thoroughly enjoyed those she worked with. Everyone who knew her spoke highly of her. She retired from the DEA in 2008 after sixteen years of service, leaving behind a remarkable group of co-workers she loved dearly.

The visitation and service will be held at Mowell Funeral Home. The immediate family will receive family and friends on Monday, July 2, 2018 from 6:00-8:00 PM. The funeral service will be held the following day, July 3, 2018 at 10:00 AM. Bobbi Jo will be laid to rest following the service at Camp Memorial Park, Fayetteville, GA.
