Born Barbara Baffi on April 21, 1942 in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn to Michael and Emily, she lived her early years surrounded by her huge extended family. Always an excellent student, Bobbie attended Bishop McDonnell High School on a full scholarship and in 1963 she married Frank Borriello. Bobbie and Frankie welcomed their daughter, Michelle, and moved to Staten Island shortly afterwards, settling in New Springville. Gladly, she became a stay at home mom until 1977 when she began working part-time at Macy's until her retirement almost 20 years later. The couple remained happily married for almost 25 years until Frank's untimely death in 1988. In 2007, Bobbie moved to Marlboro, New Jersey where she lived out the rest of her life. She was a devout Catholic and depended on her strong faith throughout her entire life. It truly never wavered. Bobbie was as kind and as thoughtful and as selfless as they come. Her compassion and empathy for others was boundless and she would try to do whatever she could for those she loved. For pleasure she enjoyed shopping (even grocery shopping!), playing mah jong and, of course, being with her family and friends. She was an excellent cook with Michelle always relying on her for a special recipe. She loved visiting Atlantic City and the beach, always with her cherished best friend Nettie Tripodi. They shared a friendship like no other. An avid Yankees and Giants fan, for sure, but an even bigger fan of her 3 grandchildren, Michael, Stephanie and Frankie Moyle, and all of their various sports through the years. Their Grandma took great joy in every aspect of their lives. And in their greatest sorrow when they lost their dad, her presence and deepest love was always a constant. Along with her daughter Michelle (Moyle), her precious grandchildren, and her "right arm" Nettie, she is survived by her dear brother Orry Baffi and his family, her very loving in-laws, Marie, Rick, Donald and Chrisie, and many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends, as well as her sister Cecilia Frankel. She was predeceased by her son-in-law, Mike Moyle, in 2016. She adored him and he felt the same way about her as well. They shared a very special relationship. Her family takes immense comfort in the fact that she is with all of her loved ones in heaven and that she is free of the body that no longer served her.
