A truly amazing lady returned to her Heavenly Father on March 6, 2013, after a long battle with COPD. Bonnie was born in Berkeley, California, to Arthur and Fairel (Anderson) DeMarr. She graduated from Berkeley High School. Then, she attended U of U, was a member of the Alpha Phi Sorority and earned a Bachelor's in 1950. Bonnie married William (Bill) H. Sadleir in 1951. Together they had three sons and a daughter. Bonnie began teaching school in Salt Lake City. Bonnie and Bill eventually settled in Seattle, WA in 1964. Bonnie taught P.E. for the Seattle School District for several years. Many of her students remember her for her enthusiasm and creative teaching methods. Bonnie earned a Master's in Education from U of W. She married Jesse M. Orme in 1981. After a work-related injury when she was no longer able to teach, she became passionate about water quality and protecting Puget Sound.

Bonnie was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She served in many callings and was a member of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers.

Bonnie is welcomed into heaven by her parents, her brothers Danton and Raymond DeMarr, her husband, and her son Timothy R. Sadleir.

She will be remembered and missed by her sons William K. Sadleir, Paul D. (Kris) Sadleir, daughter Amy (Paul Baum) Sadleir, 12 grandchildren, 11.5 great-grandchildren.
