Obituary for Roberta Hermine Burckhartt

On May 19, 2020 Roberta Hermine Burckhartt, loving mother, grandmother and friend passed away peacefully at the age of 90 in Mobile, AL. Roberta, known to all as Bobbie, was born on September 28, 1929 in Baltimore, Maryland. She was preceded in death by her husband, Merton, whom she was married to for over 58 years. They were married on June 3, 1951 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Bobbie and Merton then moved from Minnesota to Lafayette, Louisiana in 1959. And in 2004 they made their final move to Mobile, AL.

Bobbie had only one brother, Gordon McGregor, who just recently preceded her in death.

Bobbie is survived by her five children: Robbie Hayes, Barbara Burckhartt, David Burckhartt and his wife Beth, Karen Viator and her husband Bob, and James Burckhartt and his wife Sherry. She had 12 grandchildren: Jennifer Elkins, Brandon Hayes, Michelle Hayes, Matthew Hayes, Allison Trail, Melissa Davis, Bradley Harris, Hannah Burckhartt, Alexis Burckhartt, Madison Burckhartt, Zac Sims, and Riley Sims. She also had 10 great grandchildren: Jeffrey Elkins, Lauren Elkins, Julianna Elkins, Graham Elkins, Abbigail Hayes, Jacob Hayes, Colin Hayes, Liam Hayes, Isaac Harris and Jackson Harris.

Bobbie was a strong, independent woman. She was one of the most intelligent and hard-working individuals you could ever meet. She started her career as an Administrative Assistant for Petroleum Helicopters and then as a Head Start Teacher. She moved on to become a self-taught Petroleum Landman establishing and running her own company for several years and was the first woman in Lafayette, Louisiana to be accepted as a member of the Independent Petroleum Landman’s Association. She eventually went to work as a Landman and General Manager for WPM Exploration, Inc. in Lafayette for 12 years before retiring. She loved playing piano, fishing, skiing, cross stitch, cooking, reading books, crossword word puzzles and especially spending time with her family. She was known to most as being headstrong, a “force to be dealt with”, and was someone that was deeply committed to family and friends.

The family will receive visitors on May 22, 2020 at Ascension Funeral Home on Hillcrest Road between 5:00pm and 7:00 pm. Bobbie will be laid to rest on May 23, 2020 at 11:00 am at Pine Crest Cemetery West, on Snow Rd. S. Arrangements by Ascension Funeral Home, 1016 Hillcrest Road, Mobile, Alabama 36695.
