Print Article

Roberta “Bobbi” 78, passed away Sept. 9, 2019, unexpectedly, secondary to complications arising from a medical procedure.

Bobbi was born in Killdeer, North Dakota, in 1941 to Delmer and Harriet Weydahl, and later adopted by her stepfather, Orland Slama, after the death of her father. Bobbi was a graduate of Flathead County High School (1959) and attended the University of Montana.

Bobbi was an extraordinary classical pianist from a very early age. Later in life she became a prolific activist and staunch supporter of animal rights. She headed up the Arizona chapter of PETA, founded the first animal rights group in Arizona (SPEAK) in the 1980s, and lectured at the University of Arizona Veterinary Science Department as part of a course on human and animal interrelationships for seven years, all while organizing countless vigils and protests against animal exploitation and other abuses. A vegan for 45 years, she walked the talk and made it her life’s mission to minimize animal suffering.

Bobbi is survived by her brother, Allan Weydahl; daughters, Dee Kidd and Sabra Wright; son-in-law, Keith Kidd; seven grandchildren, one step-grandchild and two stepgreat-grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Spay and Neuter Solutions online or mail to P.O. Box 762, Cortaro, AZ 85652.
