Relation: Friend from many years back

I was shocked and saddened to hear of Bonnie’s passing. Although I haven’t seen her for many years I always enjoyed time spent talking to her. She and her siblings were all good people and left us too soon.

From: Anita & Everett Mayne
Relation: Anita- a cousin of Brian Cumberland

We are very sorry to hear of the tragic loss of Yvonne (as we new her.)We had the privilege to know her through her husband Brian when they came to vistor Brian’s Mother Jennie, in Sedgewick, Alberta. Also, when Brian and Yvonne lived in Sedgewick, many years ago, we did have have occasion to visit somewhat more. Brian was Anita’s cousin, and his mother was Anita’s aunt. May you find comfort in the memories you have of Yvonne, and know that other people share in your sorrow. Sending our sincere sympathy to all the family. Anita & Everett Mayne, Sedgewick. Alberta

From: Brenda Bond
Relation: friend

Bonnie and I met at the Okanagan Falls Heritage and Museum Society in the 90’s. We volunteered many hours together and enjoyed each other’s company. Bonnie was always considered a friend of mine even though we hadn’t seen much of each other in the past few years. But when we did meet, usually somewhere in OK Falls, a big hug and smile was always waiting. I will miss her smile. My heartful sympathies to Bonnie’s family on your loss. She was special.

From: Anthony & Christine Huhn
Relation: Dentens Grandma

Always know as “Grandma Bonnie” to us. It was an honor to have her as part of our family. Our hearts are with all of your families.
All our Love,
Anthony & Chris Huhn
