Bonnie was the loudest in the crowd at her grandchildren’s sporting events. She enjoyed staying active and played hours of pickleball, mahjong, bocce ball, and more with many of her friends. Bonnie truly could make any house a home.

She loved her family so well. Bonnie was an outstanding mother to; Lynn (Jeff) Paupore, Juli VanPembrook, Lisa Flaminio, and Amy (Mark Sleik) Carpenter; she was a committed grandmother and great-grandmother to; Erica Swick and her son Trent; Nicole (Jeremy) Mortl and their children, Aubrey and Camden; Ryan (Angi) Coughlin, Jason Richtig and his children Ryan, Kylie, and Bradley, Michelle (Brandon) Lee and their children, Olivia, Greyson and Abbey, Ashlee (Rick) Kinsey and their son Marvin, Kevin Flaminio, Kinie (Ryan) Gerbig, Derek Carpenter, Megan VanPembrook and Austin VanPembrook.

“Grandma has been a solid source of love, strength, support, wisdom, humor, kindness, sassiness and guidance. Our lives will not be the same without her.”

Marvin and Bonnie would like to thank their many friends for their thoughts and prayers.

Marvin, Lisa, and family,
Please accept my deepest sympathy. I sat with Bonnie and my dear neighbor Lynn Lehmann at the Labor Day Fun Horse Show. We had such a nice visit talking horses and the girls showing, and how Bonnie and Lynn were the best and most fun horse show moms! Cherish all your wonderful memories! Diane Luczak
