Obituary of Barbara "Bobbie" Gomila Donnelly

Barbara "Bobbie" Gomila Donnelly passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on November, 4 2020 at the age of 73.  She was born on October 24, 1947 in New Orleans, Louisiana, was a graduate of St. Joseph's Academy, and a resident of Slidell, Louisiana.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Lawrence Gomila Sr. and Hazel Gomila and her siblings Dorothy "Dotty" Daboval, Lawrence "Tubby" Gomila Jr., Marilyn "Nookie" Marine, James "J.C." Gomila, Francis "Boogie" Gomila, and Patricia "Pat" Pratt. 

Bobbie is survived by her husband of 47 years, Harold, and their children, Brian, Shannon, Sean (Kelcey), and Brandon (Erin) Donnelly. She was a beloved MeMe to her six grandchildren: Brandon Jr., Mary, Katie, Sawyer, Penelope, and Quinn Donnelly. She also is survived by several nieces and nephews.

Before retiring, Bobbie had been a longtime employee of St. Margaret School as Assistant Cafeteria Manager and the Supervisor of the Before and After School Care program.

She enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren, who were her world. When Bobbie was not going out to eat and indulging her sweet tooth, she enjoyed her root beer floats and building puzzles. Even though she was rarely ever on time for an event, Bobbie always made time for those that she loved and she will be missed dearly.

A Memorial Mass will be celebrated at a later date.  Memories and condolences may be expressed at
