Lavon McGhie "Bonnie" Rockwood Obituary
LAVON "BONNIE" MCGHIE ROCKWOOD Magalia, CA - Lavon "Bonnie" McGhie Rockwood passed away on July 19, 2015, at the age of 96 from complications of old age. Mom was born on September 18, 1918, in Salt Lake City to Sigrid Johnson and John LeRoy McGhie. In 1940 she married Clifton "Rocky" Rockwood in the Salt Lake Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They are the parents of four children: Janis (Ed) Wheeler of Paradise; CA; Gayle Rockwood of Magalia, CA: Josett (Ernie) Rockwood-Solano of Paradise, CA; and John "Jack" (Coleen) Rockwood of Durham, CA. They have 11 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. Dad passed away in 2002, and since that time Mom has been taken care of by her children and was living with Gayle at the time of her death. When health permitted, Mom enjoyed attending activities of the Chico 5th Ward, prior to her move to Magalia in 2014. Mom will be especially remembered for her engaging smile and sense of humor, both of which she maintained up to the end. Private services are planned in California at a later time. -
