Ethel "Bobbie" Bold, 76, of Chester, MD and previously of Davidsonville, MD passed away at her home on Sunday, October 4, 2020. Bobbie was born on September 24, 1944, in Washington, DC to the late, Richard and Ethel Sinclair. After high school, Bobbie worked for the National Geographic Society while attending an orthodontic nursing program. She had a successful career in the field for 35 years.

Bobbie enjoyed antiquing and turned that passion into a business, Sisters Two Antiques, a joint venture with her sister, Florence and husband, Bob. She also spent countless hours researching genealogy, especially making trips to the National Archives. She was a member of the United Methodist Women of Calvary United Methodist Church, and the Davidsonville Chapter of the Ruritan Club.

Bobbie will be remembered most for the love she had for her family and her dedication as wife, mother, and grandmother. She is survived by her husband of 55 years, Bob; her children, Sharon (Ken) Merkel, and Dan (Heather) Bold both of Stevensville; granddaughter, Rebecca Merkel, a sister, Florence Marshall of Lewes, DE, and a nephew, Scott Sinclair Hall of Seattle, WA.

Friends and family are invited to a service to celebrate Bobbie's life on Thursday, October 8, 2020, at 10 a.m. at the Kalas Funeral Home and Crematory, 2973 Solomons Island Rd., Edgewater, MD.

I was so sad to hear of Bobbie’s passing. Bobbie and I met through UMW at Calvary Church. Whenever there was a need for volunteers Bobbie would be there. She worked hard and always brought fun and joy to the occasion. My sincere sympathies to her family. I imagine that she was your heart and soul. RIP Bobbie. Pam Halliwell, Rock Hall, MD.

We all hear, “You can’t pick your family” which is typically met with a smile and a snicker because we all know that families can be complicated and swirled in a mix of love and conflict. My Aunt Bobbie loved me unconditionally for all of my quirky eccentricities and, for that, I will be forever grateful. I am thankful that I told her, on more than one occasion, “I pick you”.
Thank you Uncle Roy, Sharon and Dan for taking such good care of her, especially these past few months. I truly wish I could have been there to help.
