Bonnie’s utmost goals and priority in life was her family. She was a loving, supportive, and caring wife. Her children and grandchildren meant the world to her. She was always the voice of positivity and encouragement. Bonnie started her community service and involvement at a young age as she worked as a secretary to the Ontario Provincial Police in her beloved Crystal Beach. She then went on to work with Fleet Industries, Secretary to the manager at the Royal Bank, Teaching at Ridgeway and Crystal Beach High School, and retired as a Realtor for Niagara View.
Bonnie was an active supporter and member of Trinitylife Church in Sherkston. She expressed her strong faith in God each and every day in whatever she did and whoever she interacted with. In the midst of her fight with cancer in her final days, her strength in trusting Jesus Christ never wavered. We thank God for taking her Home mercifully to spend Christmas with Jesus this year and we look forward to one day, joining her again in His Awesome presence.
