Niece. Yes Bonnie was my niece, daughter of my special, loving, beautiful sister Shirley and she also was gone to soon. When I think about my (niece) Bonnie she was way more than just my (niece). I was there when Shirley brought her home from the hospital. Right than I knew she was something special. A precious little angel and the first girl baby to join her boy cosine's. She was so pretty and so much fun to be around. Shared so many good times with them and the rest of our loving families. Then in August of 1964 I enlisted into the Air force and I have been away ever since. Away but not out of touch. I would come home every time I got the chance and one of my fondues memories was having a blast with Bonnie and my wonderful sister Carol. Bonnie was truly like a sister not a (niece). I`ve always loved her as one. I loved her so much and I know she loved me too. She also loved her aunt Carol and uncle Roy and has been such a shinning light and there for them anytime they needed her. Bonnie was also blessed with two wonderful children, Craig and Lauren. They have become so loving and caring and responsible just like their Mother and I truly love them the same. So what I`m really trying to say is there will be such a void in my life and the lives of so many others there are no words to describe it. Bonnie (sis) I love you and will miss you till I leave this world when I`m praying to join you and others again. Gone in body but not in spirit. God bless everyone.

It was such a shock to hear Bonnie was gone. I grew up knowing her as an aunt, even though she was my cousin. When moved to RI in 84, she was always a big staple in our family.
She will be definitely felt as a huge loss.
May you enjoy the togetherness of pur heavenly family, as you did here on Earth.
Much love and many prayers to our family

Melissa Turner October 13, 2020

God must have needed another special angel...and now Max will have a very special one watching him grow up. May he learn about his loving grandmother through the shared memories of those who knew and loved her best.
Bonnie was a warm welcome to the Silveria Family and her spirit will remain, always. She will be missed...
Deepest sympathies to Craig, Lauren, MaryBeth, and Max!!! xoxox
