Bonnie was preceded in death by her husband of 63 years, Paul F. Staton in 2002; and her daughter, Dianna Kay Fischer in 2011. Dianna was a graduate of Lutheran East High School in Cleveland and attended college in Boston, where she majored in communications. She had lived in Norton, MA for 21 years.
