Roberta Flynn

Hibbing

Roberta Flynn, age 67, of Hibbing passed away Thursday, March 9, 2023 at Fairview Range Medical Center.  Bobbi was born January 28, 1956 in Grand Rapids, Minnesota and attended Hibbing High School. She worked at Bonanza, Range Sports and Zimmy’s.  Bobbi married Irvin Hook, and together had three children.  Later in life she married Richard Stenglein.  Following a car accident, her health began to deteriorate.  Eventually, Bobbie was forced to retire due to great pain, which she endured throughout the rest of her life. Despite the pain she endured, she always put others first and had a soft heart for anyone in need. Bobbi was devoted to God, full of love, eccentric, and had a unique eye for design (She could make any space beautiful and feel like home.)  She was a good listener, and had a charisma that drew people to her. She loved cars (especially corvettes), Sammy’s Special (as often as possible), beautiful clothes and jewelry (She would even wear elaborate jewelry while wearing a sweatsuit.) and designer teddy bears of which she had many. Bobbi is survive by her mother, Norma (White) Fimrite, children, Erica Sunvul, Chisholm, MN, Nicole Pastore, Englewood, CO, Jessica Schaeffer, Hibbing, MN, siblings, David (Linda) Fimrite, Karen (David) Rock, Patty (Shawn) Vanliew, Sherry (Jeff) Walters, Kristi (Scott) Westrum, Kaylee (Terry) Cline, Grandchildren, Hunter Sunvul, Jackson Workman, Beau Schaeffer, Billy Highfill, many nieces and nephews, extended relatives, friends and her 56 teddybears. She was preceded in death by her father, Norman Fimrite, infant  brother, Keith “Kippy” and her biological father, Robert Flynn.  A memorial service will be held at the Hibbing Tourist/Senior Center on Friday, March 17, St. Patrick’s Day .  A day where we normally find her decked out in “over the top” St. Patty’s trimmings. A light lunch will be served at 12 and the memorial service will begin at 1 o’clock. She truly was a beautiful person. For her friends and loved ones, may this obituary ignite fond memories of Bobbi, who is smiling down upon us with love. We are proud to have Bobbi as a friend and will never forget her loving ways. She truly was a best friend.
