Grace C. Bonita, 91, formerly of West Wyoming, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, July 30, 2013, at the Highland Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Exeter. She was the wife of the late Samuel J. Bonita, who passed away on Jan. 3, 2009.

Born in West Wyoming, she was a daughter of the late Salvatore and Grace Carmen Grinzi. Early in her life, Grace worked as a seamstress in several area dress factories and was later a homemaker.

She was a member of Our Lady of Sorrow Church of St. Monica's Parish and enjoyed sewing, needlepoint, crocheting and embroidery. Grace was an accomplished cook and baker, and one of her greatest joys was preparing holiday meals for her family.

Surviving are her children, Joseph Bonita and his wife, Carol, Harding, and Maryann Severino and her husband, Daniel, Rio, N.Y.; one granddaughter; and several nieces and nephews.

The family thanks the staff at Highland Manor for the love, care and compassion shown to their mother during her time there.
