April 15, 1968 - October 13, 2015
On Tuesday, October 13th, 2015, Barbra (“Bobie”) Tupou, our local pool shark, strike it out bowler, passionate Team Mom, spirited side line referee, steadfast Ute Conference volunteer, unrivaled cheerleader for her children, devoted wife, sister, aunt and most recently, grandmother, returned to the loving embrace of our Heavenly Father after an arduous and courageous fight with Cancer. Barbra (“Bobie”) Tupou was born April 15, 1968 to parents Chyrel Lee and James Bowen. She married the love of her life and partner in crime, Piliote Tupou, on June 3, 1988. She sealed her family for all time and eternity in the Salt Lake City Temple in 1998. Bobie enjoyed a long and successful career with the State of Utah, concluding 20 years of service prior to her death. She devoted her life to her husband and children. She was magnanimous and enthusiastic and was quick to offer help or add a comedic flare to any situation and was a joy and pleasure to be around. Her love for her family and her extended family, especially all her nieces and nephews, was unconditional and was given freely and often. Most recently, Bobie was blessed with the opportunity to fall in love again with her grandson, Elias Semisi Valoaga who became the apple of her eye, wallpaper on her Facebook and as she stated, "Her HEAVEN on Earth." She is survived by her many friends, family, husband and 7 beautiful children: Piliote Tupou, Tiana Tupou, Tinae and Ale Valoaga, Tina Tupou, Lupe Tupou, Boweni Tupou, Ailiana Tupou and TJ Tupou. A viewing to celebrate her life and legacy will be held Sunday, October 18, 2015 at the Volta chapel located at 4586 West Woodbury Circle, West Valley City, UT. Starting at 6PM to 10PM. Funeral services will be Monday, October 19, 2015 at 10 AM to 11 AM at the Volta chapel. Burial services will follow at Redwood Memorial located at 6500 South Redwood Rd., Taylorsville, UT.
