Danielson – Barbara (Bobbie) A. Morin, 79, resident of Danielson, beloved wife of Dr. Edmond Morin, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her loving family on May 8th, 2020. Bobbie was born February 12, 1941, in Putnam CT, daughter of the late Omer and Lena Racette. She was a graduate of Putnam High School (1959) and the Memorial Hospital School of Nursing (1962) in Worchester MA. Bobbie worked as an RN in pediatrics and as a staff nurse in the medical/surgical ward, most recently at Day Kimball Hospital in Putnam CT. She was proud to be a nurse and continued to maintain her nursing license long after she retired to raise her family. Later, she worked with her husband at his chiropractic practice.
Bobbie courageously battled lupus for many years and was a true inspiration to her children and grandchildren. She taught Catechism classes and served as a communicant at St. Joseph and St. Ignatius Church for many years. She loved animals, was an avid gardener, and enjoyed bird watching. She enjoyed completing crossword puzzles and playing Scrabble with her husband, and intense games of Parchessi with her children and grandchildren.

She will be cherished forever and her spirit will continue to live on in all of us.
