HEGE-Roberta E. "Bobbie" Hege' 84, passed with grace on June 20th, 2006 at her home in the company of her children.

Loving mother of Lynne Calkins, Encinitas; Leslie Rasmussen, Pasadena and Michael Hege', Topeka, KS, she will be missed by all of us forever. Bobbie pursued life with passion and took great pleasure in family, friends, golf, cooking and her plants and flowers. Our mother was a Lady, whose style and elegance was enjoyed by all who met her. Her conversations and humor were engaging, and her captivating blue eyes were as ever-changing as the hues of the oceans and lakes she loved. She is preceded by her Husband of 50 years, Henry, and their legacy shall continue through their 7 grandchildren; Todd Calkins, Tim Calkins, Molly Calkins, Kate Hege', Daniel Rasmussen, Julia Rasmussen and John Hege'; their 2 great-grandchildren; Mandy Calkins and Lynsey Calkins; and their great-great-grandchild Kevin Gendle.
