She is survived by her brother, Carl (Linda) Ortiz of Van Buren, Arkansas. She is also survived by a multitude of nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews, and great-great nieces and nephews, all who affectionately and lovingly knew her as “Aunt Bobbie.”

She served many roles in her 57 years at Floyd Hospital, but she also served just as many outside of work. She was a Sunday School teacher, an Awana teacher, a mentor, and a role model to many, including all her family. “Aunt Bobbie” leaves behind a legacy of love, devotion, and service to many, but, most of all to her God, her friends, and her family.

I learned so much from Barbara Ortiz. She was an exemplary nurse, so dependable. She was not ashamed of the Gospel. Ms. Ortiz holds a special place in my heart and my memory. Reply to this comment

80439d I knew Nurse Ortez at Floyd Hospital and particularly in the Operating room. She treated me fairly and kept me on my toes. A really long serving and loyal professional at Floyd. I know she has been missed. My deep sympathies. John McCord Reply to this comment
