Barbara "Bobby" (Bradshaw) Sedgwick

April 3, 1934 ~ May 1, 2022 (age 88)


Bobby was raised in Oberlin, OH.  She attended Northfield School for Girls and graduated from Sweetbriar College.  She raised her family in Cleveland Hts.

In her youth, she excelled in horseback riding, sailing and many outdoor pursuits.  Bobby was diminutive, yet possessed a mighty heart and determination that sustained her following the death of her precious daughter, Cynthia, at age 26.  Proud of her Harvard Medical School educated father and brother, she distinguished herself by being reserved, dignified, unpretentious, and forever a loving mother and wife.  She was kind and thoughtful, and notes of thanks and appreciation were a must.  Later in life, she enjoyed her home in Russell Township, OH.  Transfixed by nature's beauty, she loved the sun and starry skies and critter activity in her yard.  Bobby doted on her beloved dog, Baxter, who comforted her after her husband's death, nine days before she left us to join him and her daughter.  A dear sweet woman, my mother will forever be missed and loved.

Beloved wife of the late James H. Sedgwick, Sr.; precious mother of James "Jamie" Sedgwick, Jr. of Chagrin Falls, OH and the late Cynthia Sedgwick; dear sister of the late John Bradshaw (Laura).  The family prefers that those who wish may make contributions in her name to Geauga Humane Society's Rescue Village, 15463 Chillicothe Rd., Novelty, OH 44072.  No services. 


You can still show your support by sending flowers directly to the family, or by planting a memorial tree in the memory of Barbara "Bobby" (Bradshaw) Sedgwick
