Students Remember Finley Teacher For Her Love of Music

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash--- Family, friends, and several students from RiverviewHigh School celebrated the life of their teacher Bobbie Marlow.

61- year old English teacher, Bobbie Marlow died after she fell in the Finley High School parking lot last Wednesday.

Her memorial service was at Kennewick First United Methodist Church where Marlow was a member and music director for several years. During the service friends and students talked about the legacy she left behind of loving music and finding the good in everything.

Marlow, who was originally from Pendleton, loved to travel and take photographs. She went all over the country with her mom in their R.V. Her other passion was her students; many say she was their favorite.

"She loved to sing and sometimes in the middle of class while we were working or reading she would start to sing. She made me a more creative person," said Brandon Hall, former student.

The exact cause of Marlow's death has not been determined. The Benton County Coroner's Office says they believe it had to do with her heart. She leaves behind her mother, two daughters and the many students she inspired to go out in the world and be successful.
