Bonnie Metcalf Shelton passed peacefully and gracefully on March 24 2018 with her family by her side. She was born on April 25 1922 to the late Hobert and Elizabeth Fox Metcalf.

Bonnie is survived by her son Charles and his wife Jean; her sister Joan Paramore; her son-in-law James F.

Bonnie was born in Flag Pond Tennessee and later moved to the Hampton Roads area. She initially worked as a hairdresser and later for the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society. She retired after 18 years of service at the age of 88. Bonnie had two great passions: her family and her church. She was a faithful member of Poquoson Baptist Church. She will always be remembered as a loving mother and grandmother who had an enthusiasm for serving others.
