WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) issued the following statement mourning the passing of Bobbi Barrasso. 

“Bobbi Barrasso has been lighting up rooms with her infectious smile, natural warmth and generosity of spirit since we first met as teenagers at the University of Wyoming.  She had a fierce love for her family and her beloved Wyoming, both of which she gave to tirelessly her entire life. Through her many years of service in state for U.S. Senators Malcolm Wallop and Craig Thomas; advocating for better mental health and suicide prevention services; volunteering with organizations that provide health services for women with breast cancer; or championing Wyoming women’s trailblazing history through the Louisa Swain Foundation, Wyoming had no more loving champion than Bobbi. The people of Wyoming and her beloved hometown of Thermopolis will always count her among its greatest blessings. To Bobbi’s husband, my friend and Senate colleague, John Barrasso, her daughter Hadley, family and Bobbi’s many special friends across Wyoming, I extend my sincere sympathies,” said Lummis.
