Bobette, the daughter of Lloyd and Rosemary (Lewis) Peerboom, was born on October 29, 1942 in San Diego, California. As a young child her family lived in many places with her dad’s military career. By the age of 3, her family had settled in Newton, Iowa where Bobette would attend school. Bobette was united in marriage with Bill Patton. Together they served many communities throughout the years; Bill as the pastor of several churches and Bobette as the pianist, choir director, and many other roles she would take on being the pastor’s wife.
