Bobbie Jean Longino Thornton went home to be with her Savior Christ Jesus Thursday morning, July 13, 2017, after a long battle with the effects of a severe stroke. She was born April 10, 1935 in Delhi, LA to parents Willie and Reba Longino who preceded her in death, and was also preceded in death by her brother Glen “Bud” Longino of Delhi, LA, sister Leona Longino Fleming and husband Tommy of Madison, MS, sister Shirley Longino Chapman and husband Jimmy of West Monroe, LA and brother-in-law Terry Tucker of Monroe, LA. She is survived by her husband of 59 years Albert Thornton of Denham Springs, LA, her son William “Red” Thornton, wife Jo Ann, of Baton Rouge, LA, grandchildren Joel Thornton, Luke Thornton, wife Mary, and Nathan Thornton, wife Mallory, and great-grandchildren Reynolds and Rhett Thornton, her sister Helen Longino Tucker, wife of Terry Tucker, and Mary Ann Ford, wife of Glen “Bud” Longino, along with numerous nieces and nephews. Bobbie was a nurse for over 50 years in hospitals, clinics and doctors’ offices in Vicksburg, MS, Denham Springs, Ruston, Monroe and Baton Rouge, LA. She was a devoted wife and mother, a dedicated nurse who was on the job the day before her debilitating stroke, and a person that you never had to wonder how she felt about anything. If you knew Bobbie, you knew. She fought the good fight, she finished the race, and now she is in the presence of her Lord, walking and talking again. Visitation will be Saturday, July 15th 3 – 5 p.m. and Sunday July 16th 2 – 3 p.m. with a celebration service to follow at 3 p.m. at Rabenhorst East Funeral Home East, 11000 Florida Blvd. in Baton Rouge.
