Bonnie L. Sowers
Born to Judd and Maxine Youkers on May 21, 1939, Bonnie shared her growing-up years with two brothers, Frank and Judd, and then chose to share the rest of her life with her beloved husband, Bill Sowers. Bonnie was passionate about her family of four children and their spouses, Amy and Jeff Gladfelter, Dan and fiancé, Carol Moose, Rebecca and husband, Matthias Kriesberg, and Andrew and wife, Faye. Bonnie's passion encircled her five grandchildren, Eric & Amanda Gladfelter and Bremen Hansell, Miranda & Kiana Sowers and included many other family members, friends and former students. "Living life to the fullest", Bonnie's mantra, led her to embrace her teaching, music, art, learning, giving to others, and her faith.
A service to celebrate Bonnie's life among us will be held Saturday, March 24 at 11 a.m. at St. Matthew Lutheran Church, 839 W. Market St., York, followed by a visitation and luncheon. Interment will be held at the Gettysburg Campus of the United Lutheran Seminary, at the discretion of the family. Heffner Funeral Chapel & Crematory, York, is assisting with arrangements.
