Bonnie, age 76 of White Bear Lake, MN, formerly of Sioux Falls, SD, peacefully passed from this life to her new Heavenly home on Sept. 21, 2018. She was preceded in death by parents, Percy and Pearl Stillman. She leaves behind a brother, Gene (Shannon) Stillman; beloved sister, Caryl (Lee) Aanenson; nieces, nephews, and great-nieces and nephews, family, friends and loving care-givers.
Bonnie survived a multitude of obstacles in her lifetime, but always met them head-on and bounced back. Her 2 favorite jobs were working at the Caille Library in Sioux Falls and working at PetLand in St. Paul. She loved law enforcement, her dog “Sun Pan,” stuffed animals, her hamsters and anyone who made Bonnie feel important.
She will be remembered as a caring, loving, funny gal who enjoyed the Vikings, walking, talking, laughing, singing, her cute dance moves, crafts, finger nail polish, ear rings and rings.
The family is so appreciative of the loving care Bonnie received by ResCare staff in her final 2 months. You gave us the gift of peace! Lifespark and Heartland Hospice were so supportive and caring as well.
We are also grateful for the NER care-givers who made Bonnie feel so loved and special!
