Bonnie E. Wood
May 16, 1943 ‒ February 01, 2018
On February 1st, 2017, Bonnie Elizabeth Wood, was called home by her Lord and Savior, to rejoice with him in the presence of our Father.
Bonnie was a lovely person. She was as kind as she was caring. She had a gentle touch, a heart-warming smile, a motherly hug, and a huge heart. She cried with those in sorrow, she encouraged those that needed support, and she cared for those less fortunate. Bonnie tried to see the good in everyone. She believed in second chances, hard work, making thoughtful decisions, and that every new day is an opportunity to change your life. She knew that time was the single most precious thing on earth, and that love was our greatest gift. She used them both wisely.
Bonnie was a loving and adoring wife. A kind and caring mother. She was a doting grandmother, overjoyed by her love for her two granddaughters. She was a daughter, a sister, an Aunt, and most importantly, a friend. Above all these things, Bonnie was loved. More than she could have possibly known.
Bonnie was born and grew up in Lafayette, Indiana. She graduated Lauramie High School and attended Purdue University. Bonnie also worked as a realtor in Delaware for over 30 years, helping, caring and guiding both strangers and friends. Bonnie took great pride in her work, many of those she met along the way becoming her lifelong friends.
Bonnie is survived by her loving husband of 44 years, Allan J. Wood, her adoring children, William Patrick Wood and Elizabeth Anne Wood (Ben Wojtseck), and her two beautiful granddaughters, Brea Elizabeth Wood and Ella Mae Wojtseck. She is also survived by her sisters, Mary (Ed) Weast and Betty (Marvin) Baxter, as well as many beloved nieces and nephews, extended family and friends. She was preceded in death by her mother, Betty Staley Doane Dilling and her brother, William H. Doane.
Bonnies’ generous spirit continues to give, even after death. Her donation to science has since helped an individual to regain the most wonderful gift. The gift of sight. We pray that the recipient is able to now see the beauty of God’s creation, as never before.
*At Bonnie’s request, no funeral or burial services will be held. But, we encourage you to share your stories and memories or condolences. We appreciate and honor your memories of her.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the Snyder-Rodman Funeral Center in Delaware.
