Bobbie Hurst

There are people in this world who are so full of energy and passion that they are moved to take action to make the world a better place … and they can’t help but inspire others along the way. Such was the case for our friend, Bobbie Hurst, who passed away suddenly on May 10, 2018.

Bobbie was the founder and leader of our Vashon Action Huddle which started as a part of the #WomensMarch movement in 2016. And while we did not know a great deal about her beyond her activism, it is apparent that her heart and ever-present smile shine over the arc of her life. She touched many through her work at Mary Bridge Children’s Health Center and left us and long-time friend, Linda, reeling at the suddenness of her death. She did not ask for recognition or fanfare in her passing, but we cannot let her slip away without acknowledging how she touched our lives so deeply in such a short period of time. Here’s to you, friend and ally, we miss you and thank you for sharing your light with us!
