Celebrating the life of

Barbara Ann Stephens

August 01, 1933 - May 09, 2023

Barbara Ann Stephens

On May 9, 2023, Barbara Stephens “Bobbi” died peacefully at Harmony of Savannah, surrounded by her loving family.

Bobbi was born in Jacksonville, Florida on August 1, 1933, daughter of Marylou and Stanley Edenfield. She was raised by her beloved grandmother, Betty Edenfield “Mama.”

She enjoyed working as a ballroom dance instructor and in the millenary department at Levy’s department store in downtown Savannah. Bobbi’s specialty was blending hair to make chignons. Later in life, she took over the accounting and billing department at Stephens Tire Co., where she retired in 1995.

Bobbi is perceived in death by her husband, Stephen J. Stephens, her son Stanley J. Collins and her grandson, Jay Collins. She is survived and was greatly loved by her daughter Penny Smith Laemmerhirt and her husband Dr. George Laemmerhirt, stepchildren: Stephen, Scott and Stephanie Stephens, grandchildren: Jeremy Bonin, Jessica Shuman and her husband, Trey, Josh Bonin and his wife, Elizabeth, Chris Collins and Griff Collins, and great grandchildren: Libby, Isaac, and Lilli Bonin.

Bobbi could always light up a room with her style, beauty, and stunning smile. She cared so deeply for the people around her, and her dedication to her family will forever be missed.

Until we meet again!

A celebration of life will be held on June 4 at 2:00pm at The Landings Delegal Marina on the Sunset Pavilion. Please bring memories to share!


In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Alzheimer’s Association of Savannah.



Penny, I was so sorry to hear about Bobbi. Lem and I spent many a day with her and Steve on the water. We loved our weekends at Harbour Town and enjoyed just anchoring out at Bradley Point and Wassaw. She was always so full of life and had lots of stories to tell. She will truly be missed.
