MATTHEWS - Mrs. Bob­bie Small Bur­ris, 81, of Matthews, North Carolina, passed awayMarch 28, 2019 in Or­lando, Florida.

She was born in Loris, South Carolina on May

15, 1937. Bob­bie grad­u­ated from Green Sea High School in Horry County. She was mar­ried to the late Bill Bur­ris on De­cem­ber 22, 1962. They lived in Char­lotte and were hap­pily mar­ried un­til his death in 1989.

Bob­bie was a lov­ing and de­voted grand­mother, mother and wife. She worked for a while in re­tail, but she will be re­mem­bered as an amaz­ing homemaker, an im­mensely tal­ented dec­o­ra­tor and an artis­tic crafter. Her chil­dren and grand­chil­dren have a life­time of mem­o­ries and homes full of her beau­ti­ful de­coupage, macrame, cro­chet and cross stitch creations. She also made beau­ti­ful cakes with in­tri­cate dec­o­ra­tions and an awe­some broc­coli casse­role. She loved to nur­ture her four grand­daugh­ters and her beau­ti­ful plants. The girls loved and re­spected their Nana, but it could be ar­gued that her plants did so even more.

She was a mem­ber of Wil­son Grove Bap­tist Church for over fifty years. She was ac­tive with her Sun­day School class and she sang in the choir. She es­pe­cially en­joyed re­hears­ing for Christ­mas and Easter can­tatas.

In ad­di­tion to her hus­band, she is pre­ceded in death by her par­ents Wil­bur Small and Dessie Jane Collins Small of Horry County, and her 9 sib­lings - Al­ton Small, Edna Cur­rie, Ernest Small, Fur­man Small, Alice Paul, Huger Small, Ber­nice King, Way­lon Small and Neu­zon Small.

She is sur­vived by her daugh­ter An­gela Sci­chilone and grand­daugh­ters Mon­ica Jolie and Ava Mia of Cler­mont, Florida and her son Alex Bur­ris ( Julie) and grand­daugh­ters Micah Caro­line and Skyler Elis­a­beth of Char­lotte.
