Bobra Ann Gentry, 74, entered into her Heavenly home from Greenwood Leflore Hospital on Monday, June 17, 2019. Born January 14, 1945, in Charleston, MS, she was the daughter of the late Levi Gentry and the late Thelma King Nelms. Bobra was very strong willed and also very opinionated. You never had to wonder where you stood with her. She loved keeping her yard neat, carefully tending to her flowers and working in her garden. She also loved animals, especially her Yorkie, Little Bit. Above all, she loved her family and spending time with her grands and great-grands. Bobra will be missed dearly by her family and friends, but she leaves behind wonderful memories for them to treasure until they all meet again.
