Bobby Richard Nibert, 91, of Pocahontas Arkansas, passed from life into eternity on February 9th, 2020 where he was reunited with his love of 65 years, Martha Kathryn, who passed before him and who he longed to hold once again.

He was also preceded in death by his much-loved son, Donald Richard Nibert.

Bobby leaves behind a devoted daughter, Suzanne (Bob) Dees; three grandchildren Jon (Lindsey) Dees, Katie (Joel) VanderPloeg and Maja (Steve) Aurora; six great-grandchildren, Hannah, Jackson, Tommy, Ben, Zayd, Troy, and one great-great granddaughter, Charlotte Grace. He is also survived by the sisters he gained when he married Martha; Audrey Million, Norma Sue Johnson, Mary Etta Taylor and Linda Ward Simpkins (Dr. Sidney Simpkins) along with many beloved nieces and nephews that will miss him greatly.

Bobby was a man who was devoted to his family and took pride in caring for them. In his final days, he was lovingly doted on by some of the more amazing care partners at Villages of St. Peters Memory Care and their love and support was a blessing that can not be understated.


In his final days, he summed up the reality that he helped create;

“We’ve got a good family, don’t we gal?”

We do grandpa, we really do. Thank you for all your years of work to make that a reality.


Memorials may be made in Bobby's name to the Leukemia Association. A graveside will be announced at a later date.

    candle 4I am a friend of Ms. Norma’s and Lori. Martha graduated in the class of my late Uncle Delbert Bellah – I only met Mr. Nibert one time and he was a very lovely human being, as was Martha. I just wanted to express my condolences to his family and friends. May God be with you all during this time.

    With Sympathies –

    We have lived next door to Bobby for the last 3+ years. He loved sitting on the porch and watching the kids play. He always had a smile on his face! He will be missed! Suzanne, you were a great daughter to him. RIP Bobby! We love you and we know you are with Martha and happy. God bless you.

    Bobby was a wonderful brother-in-law who has always been a part of my life. The first memory, that I can put a date to, was when I was 4 years old and he married my sister Martha. He was kind, funny, smart and a great story teller. He and Martha brought so much joy and laughter to every family gathering throughout the years. Even though we lived far apart, we stayed close at heart. I loved Bobby and will miss him very much. God blessed Martha and Bobby with a wonderful family who were so attentive to their needs in their later years. Their daughter Suzanne was incredibly giving of her time and energy as she made sure all of their daily needs and their medical needs were met. I admire her so much for the unselfish love and support she provided them.❤️

    My sister Linda said it so well that I will say she speaks for me too. We became Bobby’s younger sisters and he showed love for us from the very beginning, and we loved him in return.

    The Ward family has lost eight family members in eight years. The void is great but as we grieve and remember each one
    we thank God for having had them in our lives.

    May the comfort of our Lord fill each heart
    with peace, forgiveness, and love.
