Senator Barrasso fondly reflected on her roles as a devoted wife, mother, leader, and advocate for Wyoming.

In a statement, Senator Barrasso announced, “After a courageous battle with cancer, Bobbi is now at peace and at home with the Lord. In addition to being a devoted wife and mother, Bobbi was a leader, fierce advocate for Wyoming, and friend to everyone she met."
