December 5, 1948 - December 24, 2012
Born in Nanaimo BC, December 5, 1948, Bonnie passed away peacefully, with her family at her side, on December 24, 2012. Bonnie, a devoted wife, mother and grandmother lived each day to enjoy being with her family. Throughout her life she demonstrated such strengths as loyalty, commitment, respectfulness and all with such class. We could not be more proud and grateful for the many gifts she provided us. Now that she has completed all the work she was sent to Earth to do we wish her soul to be free of pain, fear and worries. We loved her deeply and she will be dearly missed. Bonnie is survived by her loving family; husband Ron Berry; daughter Michelle Rene Waatainen (Berry), son-in-law Steve Waatainen and granddaughters Sarah and Samantha; son Calvin Ronald (Ron), daughter-in-law Shannon Moore and granddaughters Alex and Sydney. Bonnie is predeceased by her parents Ray and Kay Bracewell. A private family service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, a donation to The Nanaimo Community Hospice Society would be greatly appreciated.
