After 82 laughter-filled years, Bonnie Marie (Taber) Shideler slipped away into the night on June 2, 2012. She was welcomed home by her husband, William Shideler (1931-1986), sister Doris O'Connell (1923-2003) and brother William Taber Jr. (1921-2012).

Born to William Sr. and Emma Taber, Bonnie first brightened the world on February 11, 1930. From her small family home in Port Angeles, she grew into a lovely young lady.

While attending Roose­velt High School, she worked in a soda shop next to the Lincoln Theater. Never the shrinking violet, she once hurled a wet rag at an unruly red-headed customer — who happened to be the owner's nephew.

They were married on June 10, 1950, and went on to have five handsome and perfect sons.

Bonnie loved good food and delighted in her family. She found talent in music, which she kindly loaned to the Port Angeles Symphony for many years.

From her mission as a founding member of the League of Women Voters in Port Angeles, to traveling to Greece, to overseeing the Seattle Mariners' spring training with her girlfriends, Bonnie knew what she was about.

May she find the cross-stitch patterns, puzzles and vegetable gardens in heaven to her liking.

Bonnie is continued in her sons, Jay, Ted, Dan, Mike and Dave, and their families far and wide, who love her still and always.

Please join Bonnie's boys, friends and family for a gathering in honor of her life well-lived on Saturday, June 16, at 2 p.m. at 1325 West 11th Street, Port Angeles.
