Bobbie Jane Richardson was born in Tunnel Springs Alabama on August 11, 1935 to the parents of Eddie Lee and Mary Shepard Richardson. She was the second of three children, including her older brother Willie Edward and younger sister Minnie Lee. The family would eventually return to Pensacola. In 1939, when Bobbie was only four years old, her mother Mary Shepard died six weeks after the birth of Minnie Lee. Following the loss of their mother, both Willie and Bobbie Jane were taken to live and be raised by their paternal grandmother, also named Minnie, and her husband Jeremiah Johnson who lived in Snow Hill, Alabama. Minnie Lee, an infant at the time, would remain in Pensacola to be raised by the sister of Mary Shepard, Georgia Ranaldson. Both Bobbie and Willie would eventually return to Pensacola. Willie came first and Bobbie came later after the death of their grandmother Minnie in 1950.

In Pensacola, Bobbie would eventually meet James Burgess McCullough. Bobbie and James married at an early age on her sixteenth birthday, August 11, 1952.
