Barbara “Bobbie” Basile

    Date of Death

    Bobbie Basile passed peacefully on December 1, 2022, in her home, surrounded by her family.
    Born in Brooklyn, NY, to Italian parents, she moved to Burbank, graduating from Burbank High.
    Married to her sweetheart Buddy, they shared 69 wonderful years, until his death in 2020. Bobbie is survived by four children: Gregory, Deborra, Barbara and Gena, nine grandchildren, and ten great-grandchildren.
    She also opened her home and heart to many others who considered her a “mom” and sought her wisdom. She worked as an executive secretary but felt her greatest achievement was raising successful children and being a grandmother. She devoted herself to her family, including her many nieces, nephews, friends, and her cockapoo, “Pippy.”
    She loved tending her garden of succulents, flowers, herbs, koi pond and her daily hummingbird visits. Hosting Sunday dinner, in Italian tradition, was her weekly joy and all were invited. She will be remembered for her incredible capacity to love and for the comfort she extended to so many. In lieu of flowers, donation can be made to the Elephant Sanctuary or ASPALA.
