Bobbie Jo (Hill) Hammons-Cowart was born on April 1, 1948, in Stuttgart, Ark., the daughter of Robert Franklin and Stella Beatrice (Berry) Hill. She attended Bradley High School, graduating in 1967.

After graduation, she married Clifford “Tip” Hammons. Together they traveled nationwide building their family as Tip built powerlines.

This union was blessed with three children, Janet, Chuck and James Russell.

Tip passed from this life in 1992, and Bobbie Jo finished raising the children. It was at this time she met and married, Charles Edwin Cowart in Keys on Sept. 3, 1999.

Bobbie was first and foremost a wife, mother, and grandmother. She was spunky and had a delightful sense of humor. She loved people and it showed.

Bobbie enjoyed cooking for her family and friends and made memories with her banana pudding, turkey and dressing, and wonderful cakes.

The light of her eyes were her grandchildren. Anything they accomplished was wonderful to Bobbie. Everyone of her grandbabies were wonderful to her.

She was a Christian by faith and a proud member of the First Baptist Church of Hulbert.

 The people of her church were also family to Bobbie. She worked in the nursery, helped with dinners, and was there every Sunday and Wednesday without fail.

The Lord called his good and faithful servant home on March 15 in Hulbert. Bobbie was 65 years old. She will be greatly missed by her many friends and her loving family.

Preceding Bobbie in her journey home are her parents, Frank Hill, Bea Hill; two brothers, Johnny Hill and Jerry Hill; and her first husband, Tip Hammons.

Bobbie’s survivors include her husband, Charles Cowart of the home in Hulbert; her three adored children, Janet Farmer and husband Roger of Hulbert, Chuck Hammons and wife Lauri of Hulbert, and James Russell Hammons and wife Sabrina of Malone, N.Y.; and her stepchildren, Marvin Cowart of Chouteau, and Jackie Cowart of Washington.

Her legacy lives on in her 14 grandchildren: Justin Farmer and wife Joann, Pamela Farmer, Candice Faglie and husband Jerry, Jake Hammons and wife Stephaney, Kody Hammons and wife Jessica, Brandon Hammons and wife Rashelle, Regan Hammons, Garrett Hammons, Kylyn Hammons, Blake Hammons, Natasha Newton, Phelicia Mouse, Brittany Cowart and Megan Cowart.

She lives on in her 13 great-grandchildren, Lacy, Kenleigh, Ava, J.J., Chance, Joshua, Kaden, Aubri, Garrett, Cody, Isaac, Luke and Maddy; her seven brothers and sisters, Kenneth Hill of North Little Rock, Ark., Jimmy Hill of Anchorage, Alaska, Faye Dyer of Washington, Ill., Ronny and Anita Hill of Alma, Ark., Penny and Dean Terrell of Mena, Ark., Sandy and Jerry Booth of Magnolia, Ark., Mike and Jan Hill of Reserve, La., one sister-in-law, Chyrel and Gary Pelfrey of Amarillo, Texas; all of her church family at Hulbert First Baptist Church; as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and a host of friends and loved ones.
