Bonnie was a 1967 graduate of Ottoville High School. On April 19, 1969 she married the love of her life Stanley D. “Stan” Mansfield of Continental. She worked at Philips ECG for 23½ years, where she met her “little buddies” and kept their friendship till this day. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend; she truly was an angel on earth. She always enjoyed her family’s company and talking on the phone and going to lunch with her buddies. She loved going to church, praying the rosary and reading her daily prayers, writing in her diary, doing crossword and Sudoku puzzles, playing solitaire on the iPad, watching her soap opera and enjoying her “paradise” by the river. She will be remembered by her kindness, thoughtfulness and love she had for everyone, especially for God and his many blessings he bestowed upon her and her loved ones. She was a member of St. Barbara Catholic Church, Cloverdale, where she started the youth choir, and was a member of the Altar Rosary Society and the Catholic Ladies of Columbia, Cloverdale.
