MILFORD - Bonnie D. Russell passed away peacefully in her sleep on Saturday, Oct. 13, 2018 at her home in Milford after a long illness. She was born Aug. 18, 1951 in Salisbury, Md., the daughter of the late Delight D. and Grosvenor R. Russell.
A graduate of Milford High School, Bonnie earned a BA in History and an MBA from the University of Delaware.

She was a longtime member of Reformation Lutheran Church, where she loved singing in the choir, playing handbells and helping the church in many other activities. She served as church treasurer for many years as well as treasurer of Luther Towers of Milton. She loved being a part of the community.
