On March 5, 2022, Earth lost an angel and heaven gained one. Bobbie Jo Carmen Lapee passed peacefully at home in her sleep.
March 3,1965 was the day she came into the world. She grew up around family. She had an intense passion for music, and she loved to sing. So, it’s fitting that in her early twenties she met a man playing music in a bar. On September 9, 1989, she married David Lapee, the very same musician. On July 17, 1996, their daughter, Lacie Lapee was born. Fast forward to 2016 and grandkids started coming. She loved nothing more than to take care and love her three living grandchildren. Bobbie Jo was synonymous with laughter. She wanted everyone to be happy, always. She was a real caregiver. She thrived in a nursing setting. Anyone could come to her, and she’d do whatever she could to heal them. Bo also had a love for her pets, she had many dogs over the years and loved each one with her whole heart. She wasn’t just known as Bobbie Jo. Those who love her recognize many of her nicknames including Bo, Mom, Gigi, Bo Diddle, and when she was feeling really silly, Helga.
Those who meet her in Heaven are her mother, Vera Brickles; father, Robert Eckert; stepfather, David Brickles; infant grandson, Ciel Cochran; and many loving aunts, uncles, and cousins. Her two dogs, Rascal and Princess also greet her.
The people waiting for the day we meet again are her husband of 33 years, David Lapee; daughter, Lacie Lapee; son-in-law, Denver Cochran; grandson, Gray Cochran; granddaughters, Rune and Mira Cochran; sisters, Sherry Bales Rhonda Lindsey; and her many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
Her celebration of life will be held Saturday, March 19,2022 at 2 p.m. at Lathrop Assembly of God Church.
Memorial contributions can be sent to Bross & Spidle Funeral Home in Lawson, Missouri. Flowers can be sent to the First Assembly of God in Lathrop, Missouri.
Our Sincere Condolences
Me and Lacie Lapee grew up in the same neighborhood and I would go over to their house everyday after school. I knew Bo Lapee for along time just like I knew Lacie. Bo was like a second Mom to me. I would even spend a whole summer at their house down in Lathrop. And we would also visit the other the families. My Prayers are with the family as they are dealing with the Loss of a Loved one. One Day I will see Bo in Heaven one Day when it’s my time.
