They enjoyed camping and traveling and were able to visit almost all 50 states together. A very active woman, Bonnie took a great interest in her kid’s activities by serving as a Girl Scout, Boy Scout and 4H leader.

Bonnie was a devoted and faithful member of St. Mary Catholic Church in Delaware and enjoyed spending time with her family. As a teenager, she enjoyed barrel racing in rodeos, fishing and shooting guns. She loved being artistic which led her to paint and sculpt. She also enjoyed cross stitching.

Left to cherish her memory is her devoted husband, Edgar; children, Rex (Linda) Reichert, Anthony “Tony” Reichert, James “Jim” (Deidri) Reichert and Mary Fish; daughter-in-law, Lisa McNamara; 11 grandchildren.

In addition to her parents, Bonnie was preceded in death by her daughter Connie McNamara, her son Andy McNamara and her son-in-law James Fish.

The family would like to extend a special thanks to the nurses with Capital City Hospice including Angela, Rebecca, Delores and Carmen for their care and concern.
