Bonnie Lou Moore

August 22, 1955 ‒ January 23, 2020

Marion, Ohio

Bonnie Lou Moore, age 64, of Marion, passed away Thursday, January 23, 2020 at OSU Medical Center.

Bonnie was born in Plain City, Ohio on August 22, 1955 to the late Cecil Eugene and Edna Mae (Blevins) Friley.

Bonnie met Adam Moore after he relocated to Marion and the two were wed on December 3, 1971.  Together Bonnie and Adam were known as the neighborhood parents always having a houseful of kids.  Bonnie and Adam made sure no one went hungry and everyone enjoyed sports and card games.  Adam preceded Bonnie in death on October 29, 2009.

Bonnie loved her four sons more than anything and would do anything to support them often going without.  In addition to loving her children, she cherished time spent with her grandchildren often tickling and teasing them.

Having another chance of love, Bonnie enjoyed spending time with her boyfriend, Richie Kinnison watching TV and of course The Buckeye.  Richie was always at her side, helping Bonnie any way he could.

In younger years, Bonnie worked as a nurse’s assistant at local nursing homes, but her true calling was being a mother and wife.  She cherished every moment she spent with her family.   Having a big heart, Bonnie loved all animals especially her cat, Patches and dog, Max; and often felt bad for farm animals during the winter.  Having a green thumb, Bonnie would spend countless hours in her garden making sure everything looked perfect.

Never meeting a stranger, Bonnie loved to spend time on her front porch with her friends and family. If she wasn’t at home with her family, Bonnie could often be found playing BINGO with her sisters.

Bonnie will be missed by her children, Clayton (Karma) Moore of Marion, Aaron (Tasha) Moore of Marion, John (Amanda) Moore of Marion, Cecil (Jamie) Moore of Marion, June Bug Conn of Columbus, Angie Frost of Marion, and Pastor Opal Collinsworth of Ashland, Kentucky; siblings, Wilma Farmer, Lois Stapleton, Betty Kinnison, Cecil Friley, Roger Friley, Johnny Friley, Connie Thompson, and Ruth Friley, along with countless grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, and nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents and husband, Bonnie was preceded in death by son, Willard Conn; and siblings, Gloria Graham, Buddy Friley and Kenneth Friley.

Visitation will be held at Snyder Funeral Homes, Denzer Chapel (360 E. Center St, Marion) from 4 until 7 pm on Tuesday, January 28, 2020.  A funeral service will be held at the funeral home at 11 am on Wednesday with, her daughter, Pastor Opal Collinsworth officiating.  Burial will follow in Grand Prairie Cemetery.
