I just heard the very sad news where I'm living in Florida. I always had special pride in Bonnie's achievements as I was involved in her hiring at Wexler Weisman. Bonnie was truly a very special caring person and a super attorney. She will be sadly missed.

Bonnie, What a great lady, co-worker and friend. She always had a kind word and beautiful smile and that was always. She will be missed by many of us who have known her. Sending prayers to the family and a very special one to Danny who I also knew personally. May Bonnie Rest in eternal peace in the arms of our Lord and Saviour.

With deepest Sympathy,

Bonnie was a very kind and caring person and a strong and effective advocate for her clients. She was always very nice to me. I am a better person and lawyer for having known her. I will always remember her fondly.

Bonnie was a mentor to me from my earliest days in the profession. Even as a very young attorney, she took me under her wing at hearings and even took the time to counsel me following. Her impact on me was indelible, and I'll carry her sage words of advice with me always.

Bonnie, you will be so, so missed....

Best,
Marianne

Bonnie was a wonderful friend from the time I met her, when I moved to Broomall at the beginning of third grade at Russell. Although I relocated to California in 1977, we always stayed in touch. We often got together for breakfast or lunch when I was visiting Philly over the years, and she came to be with me when I laid my father and mother to rest in Montefiore in 2011 and 2014--which meant so much to me. She was also a outstanding lawyer. Bonnie was fantastic person who will be greatly missed. May her memory be a blessing.

Bonnie was one of a kind. Smart, caring, a great listener and a wonderful friend. A superb lawyer who was practical and knew how to cut a deal. Always put others first. She loved her family and her friends and we all loved her back. I will miss her and will cherish the memories of the times we spent together.
