Mansfield, Ohio

MANSFIELD:  If Bonny L. Beal didn’t have her Bible on her lap, she was likely loving on a little child there. She just loved loving on the little children.

Remembered for her constant kindness, Bonny L. Beal passed into the Lord’s presence Thursday morning March 23, 2017 from OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital. She was 84.

Born October 26, 1932 in Auburn, IN to Lloyd and Mabel (Switzer) Fay, she was graduated from Mansfield Senior High School. Bonny worked as head secretary at the Mansfield Tire & Rubber Company.

She was preceded in death by her husband William L. Beal on January 20, 2007. Also deceased are brothers Jack, Bill and Keith Fay.

A graveside funeral service will be held Wednesday, March 29 at 12 noon in Oak Grove Memorial Park, Lexington with Pastor Jim Carder officiating. The Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home is handling funeral arrangements.

  • I extend my deepest heartfelt sympathy to all who loved and
    will always love this precious woman, my SISTER.
    – Loving Memory of my Sister –
    God looked around his garden,
    And saw an empty space.
    Then he looked down here on earth,
    And saw your loving face.
    He put his arms around you,
    And lifted you to rest.
    His garden most beautiful,
    Because he only picks the best.
    A million times we’ll miss you,
    A million times we’ll cry.
    If love could have saved you,
    You never would have died.
    In life we loved you dearly,
    In death we love you still.
    In our hearts you hold a special place,
    No one could ever fill.
    It broke our hearts to lose you,
    But you did not go alone,
    For part of us went with you,
    The day God took you home.
