Roberta (Bobbie) Agnes Green (nee Parsons)

February 7, 1940 to June 28, 2021


Bobbie will be remembered fondly as the kindest Mom, sister, grandmother and friend that we could ever hope for. She loved her family and friends dearly and always had a smile, an empathetic ear and a shoulder to cry on when needed.


An active member of the congregation at the Anglican Cathedral, her faith was strong and she drew so much joy from her many friendships and activities at church which included many years of Sunday School teaching, helping out at the Tea Room and as a member of the Altar Guild.

Bobbie also loved a good time – whether it be at card games, family get-togethers, travels abroad with friends and family, summers spent in Happy Adventure, church functions, or when racking up a high score at bowling. She was also a life-long watcher of Coronation Street, a lover of cats and word puzzles, and an avid Habs fan (whose playoff success gave her a much-needed “spark” during her illness). She loved Christmas time most of all (so many decorations and cookies!), when her family and friends could come and be together with her.

For Bobbie, her greatest love and joy was on display when visiting with her three grandchildren in Ottawa (Timothy, Douglas and Lucie), whom she absolutely adored. In turn, they deeply loved their “Grandma Green” and will miss her dearly.

Bobbie was predeceased by her husband Winston, mother Pearl and father Hector. Left to mourn and celebrate her life are her children Jennifer (Paul), Geoff (Katherine) and David, sisters Minnie (Lloyd, deceased), Shirley (Jim), Marina (Herbert, deceased), Patricia (David), Carol (David, deceased), brother Winston (Kay) and grandchildren Timothy, Douglas and Lucie. She was predeceased by sisters Lorraine, Theresa and brother Hector.

Ready to be reunited with Dad again, Mom passed away peacefully at her home of 52 years after a brief illness.

We were extremely lucky to have our dear Mom in our lives for her 81 years, and grateful for the joyful memories of her that we will always have.

She will be forever in our hearts.

Friends and family are invited to pay respects and celebrate her life at a visitation to be held at Carnell’s Funeral Home, 329 Freshwater Road on July 9th from 2-4pm and 7-9pm.

Much love and deepest condolences to Jennifer, Geoff, David and family. So sorry to hear of Bobbie’s sudden passing. I will forever cherish those Christmases playing Trivial Pursuit and the late night walk back to Pearson Street – once in an ice storm. Hugs to all in this difficult time.

Dear Geoff, Jennifer, David and families, we are so very sorry for your sudden loss. Through a long friendship with Geoff, your mom was present at every event and milestone, big and small, from early adolescence to adulthood, cheering you and the rest of us on with her loving spirit. She will be deeply missed. Please accept our deepest condolences.

We regret that we are unable to attend the funeral service today, but be assured of our thoughts and prayers at this time. We will miss Bobbie’s smile and greetings at Church. She often reminded me (Frank) that I had officiated at her marriage to Winston while I worked at the Cathedral with Canon Slade.
However, life goes on and we trust that you will be comforted by many happy memories and the hope of our faith. Blessings, Matilda and Frank Cluett.


We are deeply saddened by the loss of your Mom. She was a special person and meant alot to all of us. We will be thinking about you today and our prayers are with you.

Jennifer, Geoff, David and families,

We are deeply saddened to hear about the passing of your mother. Life without our fabulous Aunt Bobbie will never be the same. Her kindness, compassion and generous spirit touched us all. Throughout her life, Aunt Bobbie inspired us with her courage and grace, as she confronted many challenges. An adventurous spirit, and always ready to have a good laugh, Aunt Bobbie’s presence in our lives will be deeply missed.

Sending you our love, condolences, and hope that you find strength and peace in your loving memories of your mother..

Karen, Madeleine, and Elizabeth Tomala

Chris, Valerie, and family

Patsy,Carol and families , We are so sorry to hear of Bobbi’s passing.Please accept our sincere sympathy.

Jennifer, Geoff, David and families,
My condolences to you all on your loss. Bobbie was my second cousin by marriage. Your father Winston and my father Cluny were cousins. Over the years we lost contact but did on occasion see Bobbie out walking or shopping and always stopped for a brief chat. Lots of other memories over the years for which to be thankful. I am sure similar memories will help you during this difficult time.

You are all in our prayers.

Wayne and Donna

Jennifer, Geoff, David and families,

Words cannot express how saddened we are by the loss of Aunt Bobbie and our thoughts are with you all. She was a best friend and devoted sister to my Mom and a special Aunt who was there for so many important milestones in our lives. Aunt Bobbie meant a great deal to our family and the void she leaves behind is immeasurable.

She was a warm, caring and thoughtful person who always made you feel welcome and loved. I have countless memories of good times spent in the company of Aunt Bobbie and her beautiful smile and vivacious personality lifted everyone’s spirit. She was so much fun too – always ready for a good laugh and with her wonderful wry sense of humour she made sure everyone else was laughing too. She was also incredibly courageous and resilient – facing illness and other difficult obstacles in her life with unbelievable strength and resolve. For these and many more reasons we admired her immensely.

We will dearly miss our beloved Aunt Bobbie and cherish all the beautiful memories we shared together. May your loving memories bring you peace, comfort and strength in the difficult days ahead.

Our deepest condolences and love to you all.

David, Jen and Geoff and the Green Family,
We are so sorry for your loss of your wonderful and kind mom. Please accept our deepest sympathies.

David, Jennifer, Jeff and families…

We were all so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing and wish we could be closer by this weekend (we are on vacation on the Northern Peninsula). We all knew your mom so well, and really grew up knowing her and seeing her every week at the Cathedral. She was always so friendly, so positive and so encouraging to us and to our family as the years passed by, and she was such a pillar of the church.

We are thinking of you all at this difficult time, and wishing you peace. Our prayers are with you.

Take care,
Hugh, Valerie, Claire, Emmajane and Anthony Donnan

Jennifer, Geoff and David,

We were so saddened to hear of your mother’s passing. Our thoughts are with you and your families at this difficult time. We have many fond memories of Aunt Bobbie from over the years, and are going to miss her very much. Please accept our deepest condolences.

David Green and family,

We are so very sorry for the loss of you mother. Mrs. Green always had a smile and she was a joy to talk to anytime we met. We admired her for her dedication to the church and for the love she showed her family. We knew she especially loved visiting family in Ottawa, but it was surprising to learn that she was a fan of the Montreal Canadiens.

Deepest sympathy going out to the green family on the loss of a great funny person bobbie who will be missed dearly..RIP roberta. .. hugs

Jennifer, Geoff and David,

Thinking of you at this sad and difficult time. Your Mom was a very special person in my life. She was so caring, loving and supportive and was always there for me. Such am amazing strong woman.

I know you will miss her terribly. You were so blessed to have her as your Mom . I wish I could be there to give you big hugs. Sending you lots of love. My deepest condolences. xo

Our thoughts are with Jennifer, Geoff, David and all of Aunt Bobbie’s family and friends.

While we didn’t get to Newfoundland as often as we would have liked, we were always thrilled to hear when Aunt Bobbie was coming our way to see her much loved grandchildren, knowing that she would carve out some time to spend with us as well.

Aunt Bobbie had a unique ability to make everyone around her feel at ease and truly cared about. Generous with her time, she was easy to talk to and you always left a visit with her feeling better than when you started. Her warm smile, hearty laugh and genuine interest in all of us will stay with us forever.
We are very sad that she is no longer with us but so grateful to have been lucky enough to have known her.

Holding you all close in our hearts.

Heather, Stephen, Ryan, Matthew and Emily Miller

So very sorry to hear of Bobbie’s passing. She was a valued and delightful member of the St .James Ladies Bowling League for many years. She was a wonder to all of us the last couple of years that she bowled. Her failing eye sight didn’t deter her one bit from bowling better than most of us! If she didn’t get a strike, she would ask what was left standing (she couldn’t see the pins at the end of the alley), and once she knew what needed to be done for scoring, she usually did it.! She was a bright spark in our bowling group and will be greatly missed. Deepest sympathies to all the family.

Jennifer, Geoff and David,
I am so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. We were friends for over 65 years..and how do I say goodbye..we enjoyed so many adventures together..from our first trip on an airplane, bowling , card club, quartermasters at Girl Guide camp , university and teaching….and even though the miles separated us, we never lost contact.. your Mom was a true , loyal friend. I will miss her and especially our phone calls.
Thinking of you and all the Parsons family…
Love ,

To the Green Family

God has indeed taken another angel for his flock.

Bobbie was a very special lady. One of the kindest most generous women that I have ever known. My mother (Gwendy Noseworthy) was in the ACW with Bobbie. They worked closely for many years baking cookies for parish sales, confirmations, the tea room, and the many other functions at the Catherdral that required a cup of tea! Bobbie was always happy, smiling and there with her fabulous home made cookies.

You are so lucky to have had such a fabulous woman for your mother and grandmother.

I am sure that there is a new ACW now in heaven and Bobbie is there enjoying all her old friends. We will miss her!

Helen Norman

To the Green family,
I was so saddened to hear of the passing of this wonderful lady. She was always Miss Parsons to me, as she had been my beloved Grade 1 teacher many years ago when she taught with my dad at St. George’s Elementary School. In later years, I would often run into her, usually while out shopping, and she would stop and have a chat. She was always so pleasant, with that lovely smile.
My sincere condolences to her children,
grandchildren, and siblings. Her memory will always hold a special place in your hearts.

Bobbie Green was a quality person: kind, good, solid, and sensible. Invariably pleasant, she was unfailingly helpful and unrelentingly positive. It will be difficult for us to imagine the cathedral congregation without her.

Our thoughts are with Aunt Bobbie’s children, grandchildren and siblings who lost an incredible person. Aunt Bobbie was so fun to be around. She always had a ready smile and was so genuine. Over the years we saw her when she visited Ottawa and when traveling with family to St. Johns’. We always loved spending time with her. It was so easy to talk with Aunt Bobbie and our visits were always uplifting. Aunt Bobbie touched many lives with her kindness, optimism and patience. : – )
After living this life, I look forward to seeing her and all our loved ones again and to continue where we left off. It will be a joyful reunion!

To the Green Family,

We were so saddened to learn of Bobbie’s passing. Please accept our deepest sympathies and condolences at this most difficult time. We will miss seeing her smiling face at Church on Sunday.

Family and friends my sincere sympathy on the passing of a wonderful lady.Eternal rest grant unto her o Lord and may light perpetual shine upon her.

Jennifer, Geoff and David. The wonderful comments you have written about your mother are so very true. I had the privilege of knowing your Mom for many years ,mainly through Church and the many Church functions which she was such a fixture at. It was absolutely certain ,that if anything was happening at all the Cathedral, Bobby would be there , generous in volunteering her time and energy to ensure a successful event! . She was a lady I liked very much, upbeat and always welcoming ,inquiring of one’s health, interested in the children ,which she knew by name , and quite often relating a funny story or a “bit of news” which always brought a laugh .! When Covid is passed and life returns to some form of normalcy, not seeing Bobby at church will be an adjustment we will all sadly have to make..
Your mother was indeed a fine lady who will be missed by the many who knew her ,liked her and respected her. I know I will!
To you, her family, I extend my heartfelt condolences on Bobby’s passing.. May you find peace in the knowledge that your Mom was indeed “a good and faithfull servant ” to her children, grandchildren, friends and the God she worshipped. . Rest well Bobby.

To all of Bobbie’s Family
So sorry to hear of Bobbie’s passing. She was a wonderful friendly lady that I enjoyed bowling with. Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you mourn your loss. Take comfort in all she gave to others as well as her family in her life time

I volunteered with Bobbie at the Anglican tea rooms for many years. She will be sadly missed. My condolences to the family.

I was shocked and saddened to hear of Bobbie’s passing. I will miss picking her up on Tuesday mornings for bowling. and our ilively discussions about the plot of Coronation Street on the drive.

So very sad and shocked to learn of Bobbi ‘s passing. Such a lovely person and so much fun to be around. She was my first bowling captain when I started a few years ago. She was so patient and encouraging. I was not very good and I am sure I would have quit if not for her and the other amazing ladies of the league. Thanks to them I learned to love it and Tue morning bowling became the highlight of my week. We had so many laughs. I have wonderful memories of these times.. So happy to have known such a beautiful soul. Later we learned that Jeff and Jennifer were schoolmates with my children Keith and Janice. I am out of town so will not be able to offer my condolences in person. Thinking of you at this sad time. I will attend the service virtually. May your treasured rmemories of your precious mother comfort and sustain you in the days ahead. RIP dear Bobbi! We will miss you.

Noreen Jones

Jennifer, Geoff, David and families:

I was heart broken to hear of the passing of your Mom. I have so many fond memories of Aunt Bobbie. I always looked forward to “club” night rotation at our place with Aunt Bobbie and sisters – I spent most of those evening sitting with them until bedtime. Then of course, visiting your home was always a treat knowing Aunt Bobbie would definitely would break out her cookies. The best part of Christmas 2012 for me was when Aunt Bobbie dropped by my home in Ottawa for a visit. It was such a special moment to be with Aunt Bobbie and my cousins during a special time of year. And yes, she brought me a batch of my favourite cookies with a copy of the recipe (that I’ve made several times, but never, ever as good). Just a few of my memories that I will cherish forever. I am thinking of you and your families during this sad time. My deepest sympathy.

My dear sweet Cousins Jennifer, Geoff and David.
My deepest condolences to you. Aunt Bobbie was so kind and had a very generous soul. I only have amazing child hood memories. of her. She will be missed by so many.
I wish I could be there for you.
Much love to you.

Sheldon and I are so sorry to hear of the passing of your mom, Dave. She was absolutely lovely, and I know you will miss her dearly.

Bill and I are so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing.
Our deepest condolences to David, Geoff and Jennifer and all family and friends. Bobby was a great neighbor and friend when we lived on Lauria St. many years ago.
She was always kind and helpful and ready for a chat.
David and Ian would go through the hole in the fence and play together, they were great buds. I remember your Dad as well, an intelligent sweet man. They are reunited now so there is some comfort in that as you all must go forward without your beloved Mom.
Take care and God Bless.

David,Geoff,Jennifer and families

David, Jennifer, Geoff and family,
A dear, dear, friend, who will be cherished in my heart forever.

Jessie Abraham

Jennifer, Geoff, David and Families,
I was shocked and saddened to hear of your Mom’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I have wonderful memories of Bobbie as a devoted parent and volunteer at Vanier. Most of all I remember her as a dear friend from bowling. Her skill as a bowler was envied and much admired by us all. She was always full of fun and enjoyed a good laugh. Her love of life and perseverance despite adversity were inspirational. Rest In Peace Bobbie.

So sorry to hear of Bobbi’sPassing.On behalf of the St. James Bowling Team I wish to send our condolences.Bobbi was an excellent Bowler,and we had many laughs.

Jennifer, Geoff, David and families,
We can’t tell you how very sorry we were to hear we had lost Aunt Bobbie. She holds such a special place in our hearts. She was always a must visit on our trips home, when she’d spoil us with the never ending trays of sweets, chips and cheese dreams. We’d never go away hungry.
As a kid she would give me her hand-me-down clothes and I thought I was the belle of the ball in grade 7.
At 81 she could still dance circles around this new senior. I hope I can be just like her when I grow up.
I was so happy to have had one last chance to speak with her last week, but like so many others, I wish I could have had more time with her.
She truly was an inspiration in my life and a wonderful source of support when we lost Mom and then Dad. I will miss her dearly and cherish each and every happy memory of times shared with her.
Wishing you all peace and love, and that your many happy memories together will carry you through this very difficult time.
Love, Bev, Bob and family
