Bonnie graduated from East Aurora High School in 1963. She worked for Merchants National Bank for many years and then for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing until she retired.
Bonnie was a wonderful, thoughtful and caring Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt and Friend to many and she will be missed by all. Her daughter Tonya lovingly cared for her mother until she passed away. She belonged to the Friendly Senior Center in Oswego, IL and her bible study class. She was an avid reader. Through the Oswego Senior Center she used her talent in art and attended a wood carving class and made not only a beautifully carved decorated cane for herself but went on to make one for her brother, Francis.
Bonnie was a creative spirit. She acted in many plays and designed costumes for Riverfront Playhouse and made beautiful decorations for many church gatherings. She had a fun sense of humor and a gorgeous singing voice. Heaven is now blessed with Her delightful and sweet energy.
Funeral arrangements will be made a later date.
