Resident Of Los Gatos
Our beautiful and much-loved mother, sister, aunt, and friend has completed her life's journey much too soon. She was a youthful and vibrant 72 years of age when her life ended suddenly and unexpectedly. Predeceased by her husband, Martin Carlucci, and her parents, John and Betty Wilbur, she is survived by her son Christopher, siblings John Wilbur (Barbara), Barbara Hickey (Craig), David Wilbur, Jeanne Brown (Darrel), nieces Rebecca Wagner (Allen), Sarah Bronstein, Holly Wilbur, and nephew Jeff Wilbur (Lauren). Also surviving is her adored dog Latte, who was her constant companion. Many relatives and friends from New Hartford, NY and the local SF Bay Area are saddened by her passing.
Bonnie was born in New Hartford, NY and moved to California in the early 1950's, where she remained until her death. Following her husband's death, she earned a BA degree in Psychology and a Master's degree in Paralegal Studies from San Jose State University. She worked at Kaiser Permanente Hospital, Santa Clara in the Quality Dep't. for many years until her retirement a few years ago.
Bonnie was a kind, intelligent, and generous woman who was active until the very end. She will be missed by all who knew her.
A funeral Mass will be held at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Los Gatos on Saturday, 8/30, at 12:30 PM, folowed by burial at Los Gatos Memorial Park.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the American Stroke Assoc. Western States Affiliate at PO Box 742030, LA, CA 90074, or (800) AHA-USA1.
