BONNIE ANN HAVENS(1941 - 2012)

Bonnie Ann Havens June 5, 1941 - November 26, 2012 This California girl was a devoted wife, loyal sister, loving mother, awesome friend, and above all one of God's special people. The Lord introduced her to this world in the summer of 1941 and she put her special touch on everything and everyone she met. If you knew her, you loved her and if you loved her, you knew that she would always be there for you. Her heart was as big as a sunrise and just as bold with a loving touch and a sassy smile. The Lord called her home to brighten His world just as she brightened ours. Never to be out done, Bonnie will be watching and waiting in God's glory for the rest of us to catch up. She is survived by her large family including the love of her life, Jim, sister Melinda "Sis", and devoted children Dwight, Charlie, Patrick and Suzanne. She has eight grandchildren and many more "adopted" family members that will miss her greatly. We miss her now but will see her again. Ti vogliamo bene - arrivederci in cielo. A Rosary service will be held in Bonnie's honor on Sunday, December 2, 2012 at St. Anne's Catholic Church in Cottonwood, California. A memorial mass will be held on Monday, December 3, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Anderson, California.
