LAKELAND - Our beautiful daughter, Bonnie Hower, 33, had her life brutally ripped away from her on June 10, 2010. Bonnie is a most precious and beloved daughter, mother, sister, niece, granddaughter, and friend to so many.
Bonnie's two children, Hayley, 10 years and Tyler, 7 years will never again see their mother's sweet face or feel her loving arms wrapped around them. Bonnie's voice has been stilled.
Together in love and in the sharing of deepest grief are: mother, Sheri Galvez; stepfather, Bobby Galvez; father, Todd Brodeur; sisters, Victoria Galvez and Lana Brodeur; grandparents, Mary Kennedy and Larry Ward, Ralph Brodeur, Marianne Brodeur; aunt, Tomar Weaver; uncles, Larry Ward, Mark Ward, and Timothy Ward.
This incomprehensible act of violence against Bonnie has brought such a tragic and unnecessary loss to us all. We, in our stunned torment, can only hope that time, indeed, will begin to ease our pain.
We will never get over this outrage but can only slowly get past it, while this family, and all of Bonnie's friends, can create a new, happy and secure life for Bonnie's two babies in honor of all that was our Bonnie. For now our hearts are crushed.
A memorial service will be held at 1:00 PM on Saturday, June 19, 2010 at Lakeland Funeral Home & Memorial Gardens, 2125 S. Bartow Road. A memorial service will also be held in Sacramento, CA at a future date to be announced. Her family respectfully requests that in lieu of flowers donations be made to a trust set up for Bonnie's children: Bonnie Hower Memorial Account c/o Exchange Bank, 1420 Rockridge Drive, Suite 190, Roseville, CA 95661. Savings acct.#125001272, RT# 121101985.
