Our hearts are saddened by the loss of Bonnie. She was a beautiful, gracious woman whom we had the chance to know in our neighborhood, Newkirk Estates. We will miss her at the Civic Association meetings. And we will miss her warmth and smile as she made each of us feel so welcomed and loved. We trust that our Loving God is holding her and George in His arms. And we know that they will now live in joy forever. May God bless and comfort each of you.

I met Bonnie 30 years ago. She was the classroom aide in my first classroom in the Meadowood Preschool along with Carol Goodman. She was an awesome lady who enjoyed working with children with disabilities. I remember Bonnie and Carol showing the kids how to dance! She was so much fun and had a very tender heart. We worked together until she retired and began substituting. We also kept in touch when her granddaughter Kristin and my son David played on a few Little League teams together. We had lunch together a few times and saw each other around Newark every once in a while. She was a sweet lady who was so proud of her three boys, her daughters in law and her grandchildren. It was a privilege to know her. My thoughts and deepest sympathy to her family and friends.

It was a privilege and joy to have had Mrs. Mills on our staff. Her positive, pleasant, caring presence brought extra rays of warm sunshine into the lives of our students, staff and parents. Thanks again, Bonnie, for the many wonderful contributions of human services you rendered to our less fortunate
