She was educated in the Oakland School System and is a graduate of Fayette-Ware High School. Upon graduation, she enrolled at Tennessee State University. In May 1971, she received her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business Administration.
Sis. Hobbs relocated to Oak Ridge, and soon after her arrival, she united with the Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church under the pastorate of the late Elder Dennis J. Ward. As a member of Mt. Zion, she was a constant in Sunday School, Sunday morning and evening worship services, Prayer Meeting and Bible Study, and she would always provide her God-given talents whenever asked. She served faithfully as an usher, as a member of the Dorcas Ministry, and presented our church announcements. Many of the children of Mt. Zion and the Oak Ridge area were blessed at birth with a blanket crocheted by Sis. Hobbs.
She was an employee of Consolidated Nuclear Security, L.L.C. in the Operations Support Division at the Y-12 Plant. She often donated her crocheting items to charitable organizations supported by the facility.
In her spare time, Sis. Hobbs enjoyed crocheting, reading, cooking, walking, and spending time with her family. She also volunteered at Briarcliff Nursing Home.
