Bonnie was the perfect grandmother to Brianna Sortore of Batavia, Keegan VanAerman of East Bethany, Kayla Lichti, Tyler and Emma Andrews, all of Le Roy, Kodi and Aprile Beehler of Pavilion; her great-granddaughter, Mayanasia Long of Batavia; her fur baby “grandpa”; her sister, Susan (Bobby) Sutherland of Georgia; and several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and special friends.

To know Bonnie was to love Bonnie. She had the biggest heart and cared and loved for all she came in contact with. She was often referred to as “the strongest woman I know” as she battled a 10 year fight against cancer. She never gave up and continued her fight with the utmost dignity. She wore a smile on her face no matter what challenges she may have been up against.

Bonnie adored and admired her family. She was the definition of a “True Matriarch”. Her kids and grandkids were the light of her life. Bonnie took great pride in family gatherings and holidays. She loved cooking for her family. She was a doting Gramma and never missed an opportunity to tell each grandchild how proud she was of them and how much she loved each one of them. She loved attending her grandchildren’s sporting events and she was known for her cheering! A void will forever be in their hearts.

“Our hearts will forever be empty, but you are no longer in pain. You deserve paradise. Fly high with the angels- Until we meet again-WE LOVE YOU MOST!!”
