Roberta “Bobbie” A. Klepper, 72, was called home on Thursday, January 14, 2021 after fighting losing her battle to pancreatic cancer while in hospice care.
Bobbie was born to the late Rolland & Dolores (Kerber) Cattano on December 2, 1948 in Sandusky, Ohio. She was a graduate of Sandusky High School in 1966. Bobbie married her best friend and beloved husband Timothy A. Klepper, Sept 16, 1967 at St. Mary’s Catholic church. They raised two sons, Adam & Scott, and one daughter, Jennifer. Bobbie was a selfless, amazing and a fiercely loyal mother, grandmother “Gam” and great grandmother. Her life was her family. She enjoyed knitting, sewing, crafting, and her karoking with her husband and children and is well-known for her infamous pot holders and scrubbies. Bobbie will be remembered by her family and friends for her contagious laugh and her spot light smile. Anyone’s life Bobbie touched left a lasting impression forever. No matter if you were a blood relation or not, Bobbie and Tim always considered you part of the family. Her passion was being a grandmother and her grandchildren will forever be proud of how strong their grandma was. She was her family's warrior and will be missed dearly.
Bobbie was blessed with a loving family and is survived by her husband Timothy Klepper, of 54 years. 3 Children Scott Klepper (Bruce Luma), Jennifer Kuns (Randy Fredrick), and Adam Klepper (Jennifer Keegan Klepper); 12 grandchildren Kyle Kuns, Kurtis Kuns, Rockell Kuns, Bryce Fredrick (Kyleigh Fredrick), Bree Fredrick, Haylee Darr, Mckenna Darr, Zylar Keegan, Nolan Klepper, Ty Klepper, Liliahna Klepper, Gunner Klepper; 3 great grandchildren Payton Kuns, Luke Kuns, Luca Fredrick; whom she loved so dearly. 8 siblings Cheryl Murphy (late-Patty Murphy), Paulette Cece (late-Larry Cece), Roland Cattano (Pat Cattano), Rick Cattano (Paula Cattano), Vickie Carleton (Gary Carleton), Jeffrey Cattano, Debbie Cattano, Brian Cattano (Jill Cattano), along with several nieces and nephews; 5 inlaws Al Klepper (Bettie Klepper), Karen Mehling (late-Dave Mehling), Terry Klepper (Marian Klepper), Bill Klepper (Denise Klepper), Susan Safranski (Mike Safranski), plus several nieces and nephews.
Timothy and his family want to personally thank Stein Hospice and all of their nurses for taking great and compassionate care of Bobbie.

Though times were troubling, they showed tenderness towards Bobbie, and Timothy and the family will be forever thankful for that.
