Bobbie Ray Threlkeld Fields

Mrs. Bobbie Ray Threlkeld Fields, age 90, of Magnolia Estates, Elberton, GA, passed away on Monday, November 14, 2022, at the home of her son.


Bobbie was born in Madison County, GA on April 1, 1932, daughter of the late Henry Thomas Threlkeld and Ossie Oneita Scoggins Threlkeld. In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by an infant brother, Huel Edwin Threlkeld; and her husband, Clarence Lee Fields, Jr. They were married on January 18, 1947, and enjoyed 48 years of marriage.


Bobbie worked at Elberton Manufacturing Company for over 40 years until she retired to care of her husband as his health declined. She enjoyed working in her yard and gardening as long as her health allowed. Bobbie was most proud of being “Memama” to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was a lifelong member of New Hope Presbyterian Church in the Paoli Community of Madison County, and attended Calvary Presbyterian Church with her son in later years.


She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Tommy and Deborah Fields of Elberton, GA; grandchildren: Whitney and Josh Geiger of Anderson, SC and Aaron and Bayli Fields of Athens, GA; great-grandchildren: Rhett Geiger, Evelyn Fields, and Ridge Geiger; sister, Merle Fields of Elberton, GA; and brother, Howard T. And Yvonia Threlkeld of Comer, GA.


The family would like to extend their deepest appreciation to the staff of Magnolia Estates for the love and wonderful care they provided during the later years of Bobbie’s life. They would also like to thank the Gentiva Hospice Team for helping with Bobbie’s transition and the comforted they provided to the family.


Funeral services celebrating Bobbie’s life will be held on Saturday, November 19, at 2 o’clock in the Memorial Chapel of Berry Funeral Home with the Rev. Jeff Cain officiating. Interment will follow in Forest Hills Memorial Park. The family will greet friends immediately following the service at the funeral home.
