i had said i would post this. if you know her or of her then you will know why tyhe usa is going to miss her so much.

Roberta Jean "Bobby" Lindquist was born in Aluras, California on april 4 1954 to her parents Robert E. Lindquist and M. Maxine Allman Lindquist, the third of four daughters. She passed away in Pendleton, Oregon, on November 9, 2011 at age 57.

Bobby grew up in Alturas and in Bandon, Oregon. Upon graduation in 1972, she went to Southern Oregon College for a brief time before getting her first job with the USDA Forest Service in October of 1974 in Portland, Oregon. Bobby also worked in St. Anthony and Avery, Idhao, Steamboat, Sweet Home, Detroit, and Pendleton, Oregon. After returning from fire camp in Quincy, California, in July 2008, Bobby suffered a debilitating heart attack. She worked for the Forest Service for 35 years before retireing in 2009 from the Umatilla National Forest in Pendleton, Oregon due to declining health. She started with the Forest Service as a clerk/typist and worked her way through the ranks to become a Resource Specialist.

In addition to her regular job, she became very involved with fire overhead teams in 1979. For the past 20 years she has been on Type I management teams and went to such events as New York on 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, the Columbia Shuttle Recovery effert in Texas, and many national wildfires and hurricanes. Serving on a National Incident Team was one of Bobby's greatest joys. She had vast knowledege and expertise that was often sought out by co-workers and other team members.

She had a remarkable memory for names, dates, places, NASCAR stats, and facts and figures that simply astoundedmost people. Bobby was propably best known for her stubbornness, her sense of humor, her devotion, to be helping people in times of crises, her love of NASCAR, and her kitties. We are truly blessed to have Bobby in our lives and she will be greatly missed.

She is survived by her sisters Pat Lindquist of Phoenix, Arizona, RosieRose and her husband Chuck of Roseburg, Oregon, and Amy Lindquist of Pendleton, Oregon. Memorial contributions can be made through Burns Mortuary for distribution to Bobby's favorite causes: Cat Utopia in Pendleton, NASCAR Victory Junction Camp for Kids, or the Wildland Firefighter Foundation.
