Bonnie was always a free spirited soul and when she loved, she loved fiercely. She had a vivacious personality and always made those around her
laugh. Though she never held back her opinion and had a knack for telling people like it is, she was loved by so many. The family would
like to send a special Thank You to Tracy (Roberto) Soberon who helped tremendously with Bonnie’s care after her illness. Also a huge
heart felt Thank You to Dr. S. Sandhu and Dr G. Khayyat and staff of Akron General Cleveland Clinic where Bonnie received the best care
from the most loving doctors and staff. The family appreciates all that you did to help Bonnie through this time in her life. For services we ask that
you come comfortably. Bonnie would never ask that you come to her funeral in attire that doesn’t suit you daily.
