Floy Hobson, age 75, of Roswell, NM, passed away Sunday, June 30, 2019.

A graveside memorial service for Floy will be held at 10:00 AM, Saturday, August 31, 2019 at South Park Cemetery in Roswell, NM.

When Floy and I met 45 years ago, it started a journey of unconditional love. She was a true helpmate, always looking out for my best interest. Even though she wasn’t raised on a farm, she did whatever it took to get the job done. I didn’t have much money to give her to run the house, so she started sewing all of the girl’s school clothes and some of the sons. She would stay up till three am in the morning canning and freezing what we grew and still come to Hobson’s Gardens to help the next day. She helped me in all the things I wanted to do. She truly had unconditional love. Floy also helped Cumberland water co-op keep going. She helped several women learn English and helped at school, she loved her community.

Floy had her favorite songs and poems, this one being at the top of the list.

There’s a place
where I travel
when I want to roam
and nobody knows
it but me.
The roads don’t
go there and
the signs stay home,
and nobody
knows but me.
It’s far away
and way afar,
it’s over the moon
and the sea,
and wherever you’re going
that’s wherever you are
and nobody
knows but me.
