  • Aunt Bonnie you will be missed. May god bless your family in this difficult time. You will be forever loved and missed may you rest in peace.

  • Dear Bob and family, our precious Bonnie has been healed. Never again will her body have pain. Never again will her mind confuse her. She loved each and every one of you with all her heart.
    She was trying so hard to treat each of you equally. Her biggest concern was your Salvation. If she struggled with anything in the end it was that. She knew that Jesus was coming for her and wanted to make sure that she will be reunited when Jesus comes for you.
    Thank you for sharing Bonnie with me. Your family will continue be in my prayers.

  • Bob, my condolences to you and your family. Bonnie was such a bright shining star for Jesus and he allowed that light to shine all around her. I’m very grateful I got to know her and you. I pray God will give you comfort as you navigate through the days to come.

  • Bonnie was like the big sister i never had.I learned a lot from her (and Bob)..I will miss her.She is free from pain and enjoying the company of Jesus as well as family members and friends who were there to welcome her.Her one desire was that the rest of her family will accept Jesus Christ as their Savior and join her for eternity.love you Bonnie..I am so grateful that I was able to take care of you..It was my honor..Thanks Bob

  • So sorry for your loss She was a great lady
    Now she is on a new mission with God
    Thoughts and prayers go out to the whole family!

  • My sister was a special person. Sometimes there are no words to describe the loss we feel. She always brought out the good in people and was the most generious person I ever met. She and Bob, gave me my first car, 1964 Pontiac Tempest. It was a chic magnet. She also opened up her home to me when I was going to College at Ohio State. When our parents passed away, Bonnie and my other three sisters, (Kathy, Barb,Corky) took on the roles of keeping the family together. Tuff job by any standard. For as long as I can remember, Bonnie, Bob and kids put on the big Christmas party for the family. Great memories that will always be cherished. I’m going to miss her calling me baby brother. Sis, you will be missed but never forgotten. Bob, thank you for everything.

  • I am so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  • Bob our prayers are with you and the family. Bonnie shared so much of herself with others and will always be fondly remembered. Oh, my! The many meals she prepared and watched over. Blessings to all.

  • She was my mom, my best friend and my fiercest champion. She loved unconditionally and fiercely. She was kind and generous and she leaves a void in our lives that can never be filled. She will be missed by so many. I know that I will miss her everyday with every beat of my heart. I will love her always. Heaven is a better place now that she is there. I love you mom. Thank you for being you.
