Roberta JoAnne Predovich Hazlewood (Bobbie) was born May 3, 1944 in San Francisco, CA in a children’s hospital. Her father was Edward Stephen Predovich, mother was Signe Boe Predovich, sister is Barbara Jean Predovich Tencer.
Bobbie graduated from Lowell High School in San Francisco, CA in June, 1962, then attended Gaty College from September, 1962 to February, 1964.
She then attended Galile School of Vocation for nursing and graduated from there on February 16, 1965.
Bobbie started working at the University of California Medical Center from February, 1965 to January, 1967. She then decided to move to Ruidoso, NM and work at the Hondo Valley Hospital from January to June, 1967.
Some friends and her decided to move to Farmington, NM, where she lived for only for a few days and moved to Monticello, UT. That is where Bobbie met Jim in the summer of 1967.
The two of them dated and hung out before Jim’s military leave ended and he had to go back to the service.
The two married on August 22, 1970 in San Mateo, CA and made their home in Monticello.
Bobbie started working at San Juan Hospital and stayed there until 1973. She then went to work at the office of Dr. Goon.
Bobbie decided to be a stay-at-home mom after they started to have children: Stephen, Deborah, Danielle, and Tina. After the kids were in school, she went to work for Black Oil Company, and then back to the hospital again, where she worked until retirement.
Bobbie and Jim moved to Lake Havasu City, AZ in October 2014 because of her health. On May 3, 2015 she went into the hospital for a virus and never made it out.
On July 9, 2015 she took her last breath and went up to be with Stephen and Danielle and watch over us from above.
Bobbie loved her family more than anything, and would go to great lengths for them.
She was probably at the school more than Stephen, checking up to make sure all his work was turned in and that he graduated on time.
She never missed a wrestling match, drill team performance, dance or piano recital. Bobbie was right there by each one of her kids’ sides for every step of the way from Girl Scout Leader to Drill Team Advisor.
Bobbie also loved being a nurse and taking care of people. Working in the ER, birthing babies, assisting in surgery, to doing her regular shift and floor work she took her job seriously. No one could give a shot like her.
Bobbie is survived by her husband Jim, of Monticello; daughters Deborah (Toby) Crittenden of Cummings, GA and Tina (Adam) Waring of Rawlins, WY; grandchildren, T.J., Raydon, and Andrea Crittenden, Samantha and Zachary Waring, and Sky Hazlewood; and sister Barbara (Larry) Tencer of California.
Graveside services will be held on Saturday, September 12 at 11 a.m. at the Monticello Cemetery.
