Flo Baker Bobbitt lived alone in Summersville after the death of her husband. She was frequently visited by the members of her stepsons family. She had a close relationship with all the relatives of her husband and entertained them frequently. Flo Bobbitt was a remarkable woman. She had many of the same interests as her husband and was interested in Bobbitt family genealogy and Nicholas County history of families. She was a woman of strick moral convictions. She disliked organized groups for any reasons other than politics. She rarely went to church services, weddings or funerals. She had many friends and there was not one ounce of pretence in anything that she did or said.
In the later years of her life Flo Baker Bobbitt suffered unbelieveably from rheumatoid arthritis. She eventually had to make her home with her daughter, Marian in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.

Flo Bobbitt was a close friend as well as an Aunt to me. She researched , wrote, and preserved much of what we know about our branch of the Bobbitt family and their genealogy. She was one of those who most influenced me and encouraged me to write this work.
