Albemarle

Bobbie Nell Burleson Efird, 93, of Albemarle, passed away Thursday, February 22, 2024, surrounded by her loved ones.

Bobbie Nell was born and raised in the Endy community of Stanly County.  She was always proud and often told her children, grandchildren, and even great-grandchildren that she was a charter member of the Beta club.  She was valedictorian of her high school class and a good basketball player. However, her and husband Kenneth's greatest passion and dedication was serving the Lord at St. Martin's Lutheran Church.  They both loved and served with their church family as long as they were able.  Bobbie Nell loved the Lord and she lived her faith every day.  She was an amazing woman who left a positive impact on every life she touched. 

Bobbie was born October 5, 1930, in Stanly County to the late Clyde N. Burleson, Sr. and the late Phronie Lee Morgan Burleson.  She was also preceded in death by her beloved husband of 70 years, James Kenneth Efird; infant son, David Neal Efird; and siblings, Dillion Burleson, Audrey Faulkenbury, Joyce Burleson, and Evelyn Clark.

Bobbie is survived by sons, Kevin (Nina) Efird, Dr. Randy (Lee Ann) Efird, and Bruce (Gayla) Efird; nine grandchildren, Matthew (Rachel) Efird, Levi (Mandy) Efird, Kyle (Nichole) Efird, Ben Efird, Caleb (Katie) Efird, Will (Elaina) Efird, Campbell Efird, Victoria (Jake) McCrary, and Alexandra (Andrew) Foster; fourteen great-grandchildren; brother, Clyde N. Burleson, Jr.; and sister, Marie (Carlton) Skipper.
