Barbara "Bobbie" V. (Boelhauf) Lacquement, 87, peacefully passed away at Delmar Gardens in Chesterfield, MO, on Thursday, September 21, 2023, at 3:50 am.
Born on March 6, 1936, in St. Louis, MO, Bobbie was the daughter of the late Theodore J. and Oma L. (Pratt) Boelhauf. She found love and companionship with Jean Lacquement, whom she married on May 1, 1975, in Florissant, MO. Sadly, Jean preceded her in death on January 8, 2009.
Bobbie and Jean embarked on a journey together, relocating from Missouri to Bethalto. They shared a passion for antiquing and were the owners of Blue Bird Antiques. Bobbie also had a successful career in real estate, spanning over three decades. She cherished the enduring friendship of her high school sorority sisters, who continued to meet monthly until each of their passings. Bobbie's high school days were highlighted by her role as head cheerleader. Her vibrant personality and faith were integral to her being, and she was an active member of Cornerstone Church in Bethalto.
Bobbie is survived by her two daughters, Teri L. Mack of Collinsville, and Sheri L. (David) Bunch of Kansas City, MO, and her loving grandchildren, Christopher Aldridge, Erika Aldridge, and Olivia Bunch. She is also survived by her sister-in-law Janet Boelhauf, nephew DeWayne Jost, nieces, Donna (Rick) Brueggemann, Carol Jost, and Terri Boelhauf, great-nieces and great-nephews Eric (Cathy), Katy, Hunter (Haydi), Blake (Kaila), Connor, and Clayton Cole, as well as great-great-nieces and great-great-nephews Clayton Walter, Cameron, Cayla, and Oliver. Her granddogs, Koda, Stella, and Delilah, were an important part of her life. Bobbie leaves behind several cousins and a wide circle of friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her first husband Marlin Mack, as well as her second husband Jean Lacquement, her sister Sylvia (Walter) Jost, her brother Donald Boelhauf, her nephew Gerald Boelhauf, and her beloved granddogs Minnie and Lola Blue.
A memorial service to honor Bobbie's life will be held on Saturday, October 21, 2023, at 10 am at Hearts Harvest Church in Bethalto. Pastor Terry McKinzie will officiate the service.
