Bonnie Billings Stone Obituary
BONNIE BILLINGS STONE May 8, 1918-May 29, 2018 She was a descendent of early California pioneer families. She was born to Benton and Zella Yeakey in Fall River Mills. She married Lyle Billings in 1935. They spent their early years in Burney moving to Anderson in 1951 where she worked for Ben Franklin and later Penney's in Redding. Lyle passed away in 1966. In 1975 she married Hank Stone and moved to a small ranch near Wheatland. In 1985 Hank passed away and the next year she moved to Chico. She belonged to a number of organizations and was always an active part of her community. A few of the organizations were PTA, Cattlewomen, and she also was a 57 year member of the Native Daughters of the Golden West. She volunteered at the Blood Source for many years and attended Evangelical Free Church in Chico. She is survived by her children, Patricia Griffin, Tim Billings (Gayle) of Redding and Marilyn Ostergard of Chico, step-daughter Claudia Smith (Robert) of Roseville, sister Phyllis Watkins of Bieber, nine grandchildren, ten great grandchildren, and sixteen great-great grandchildren. She is predeceased by her brother Ben Yeakey, sisters Jane Crofoot and Betty Chappuis, sons-in-laws George Griffin and Glenn Ostergard. Our mother's highest priority was her family and she loved our spouses as her own children. Mom often told us that she prayed daily that she would be a good mother. "Her children arise and call her blessed ..Proverbs 31:28" More than seventy family and friends were able to celebrate her 100th birthday and express their love and admiration. Mom will be laid to rest with our father Lyle. A graveside services will be held at the Anderson Cemetery on Tuesday, July 10, at 10:00 a.m. Online condolences can be made to the family at www.brusiefh.com
