Bambie Kay Pyper of Atlanta, Georgia died April 18, 2019. Bambie is survived by her lesbian life partner of fifteen years Olive Evans, her sister Darlene nee Pyper and her brother Vincent Brown, her nephews Sam and Kenneth, many cousins including Sweets and Sandy, and so many many friends, as well as her in-laws including Margaret, Sue, Tonya, and Tawni. She was preceded in death by her mother, Karen Cottenham, and too many of her friends, including her brother-in-law Ed. Bambie took each death hard. Prior to her mother-in-law, Olive B. Evans' recent death, Olive B and Bambie enjoyed many precious hours together, including reminiscing about growing up in England, decades apart, some of the happiest times in each of their lives. Bambie learned to play snooker in England and enjoyed playing pool the rest of her life, including with her friend, Linda, and competitively with the APA. Two of her favorite memories were that of being a postie and of living in a commune in Wales. Bambie was a natural carpenter, creating beautiful and functional things, a couple of magazines having cited her work on the Grant Mansion. Bambie went skydiving, walked across hot coals, enjoyed nice clothes and wore them well, was very particular about her hair preferring a butch cut, enjoyed drum circles, wommin's music festivals, riding with Dykes on Bikes in both the Dyke March and the Pride Parade, and won Ms Leather,. She was the quintesstial dyke; her inside matched her outside; she lived her life fully and openly as a lesbian, a strength not everyone has; a strength the world is lucky Bambie had. Bambie enjoyed nature, arrowhead hunting, mudding, riding her motorbikes, shooting off fireworks, and driving too fast. She loved nature's creatures and they loved her.
