Bobbie Jo Releford-Boles – Santa Barbara Independent
We recently lost a beautiful soul far too early, Ms. Bobbie Jo Releford-Boles passed away unexpectedly August 28th, 2022. Growing up in Indio, CA Bobbie Jo was the first of seven children adopted through Foster Care. As a result, she and one of her two brothers were able to stay together and join a loving, larger family.
Bobbie Jo met her husband in Indio and was married over 20 years. They had two beautiful children who were also raised in the desert. She was a devoted mother and grandmother, always putting her children first.
There were usually animals growing up, dogs, cats, horses, and the proverbial pet fish. So , it was not a surprise when she entered the family pet grooming business. Bobbie Jo was dedicated to taking care of all animals for 22 years. She came to SB in 2014 to join her mother in Angela’s Super Groom. She was loved by her clients, especially the four-legged ones! She took care of all shapes & sizes of dogs from golden doodles to chihuahua (muzzled worked best). Cats were another story…
Bobbie Jo is survived by her children Sebastian Clark Boles, of Desert Hot Springs, Sabrina Murray Boles and Granddaughter, Scarlett Coronado Boles of Sacramento. Siblings, Donald Releford, Angelo Roldan, Heidi Faulkner, Linda Haggar, Sylvia Alvarez, and Desiree Shad live throughout CA. Her local family, mother, Angela Moritz-Blinkman, Uncle Thomas Moritz (Carla Moritz, Thomas Jr., Zofia), plus Grandmother Rita Moritz.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday October 15th from 2: 00 pm – 5: 00 pm at the Ballard Hill Ranch at 3029 Ballard Canyon Road, Los Olives. In lieu of flowers please send donations on behalf of Ms. Releford to Santa Barbara Animal Services.
