She was preceded in death by her parents. Roberta “Bobbi” Jean Klein was born July 26, 1954 in St. Paul to Ivan and Jean (Bousquet) Klein. She was a 1972 graduate from St. Agnes High School in St. Paul and later attained her degree in business from the University of Texas in Austin. Bobbi diligently worked her 30 plus year career with 3M eventually retiring from New Ulm in 2012. Besides her work there was a variety of hobbies that Bobbi dearly enjoyed in life. To relax, she enjoyed curling up with a good book or spending time tending to the flowers in the garden. She also enjoyed working with her hands, knitting and crocheting many wonderful items that her family will cherish forever. Bobbi made many wonderful friends over her lifetime and loved spending time with them as well. She truly enjoyed her retirement going on countless trips to visit family in Texas, camping trips with David, and little get aways with her friends. To give back to her community, Bobbi served on the New Sweden Township board for many years. Besides all of the work she did over the years, what Bobbi took the most pride in was always her family. She truly loved getting to see her grandchildren grow, and every moment she got to spend with them. Although Bobbi’s passing seems sudden, countless cherished memories will forever stay in the hearts and minds of all who knew and loved her. Blessed be those memories. In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to the donor’s choice.
