Bonnie J. George

October 7, 1936 – May 10, 2017

Bonnie J. George, 80, passed away of natural causes May 10, 2017.

Bonnie was born to Henry Wolters and Gladys Williams Wolters in Muskegon, Michigan on October 7, 1936.

Bonnie achieved her BA degree from Eastern Michigan University and after a rewarding teaching career in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Bonnie visited a friend living on the Olympic Peninsula. Bonnie was soon captured by the Peninsula’s natural beauty and the friendships so easily made.

She chose Sequim as her haven, coming home from her journeys around the world. While home, she enjoyed the comradery of the Over-the-Hill Club and also her clowning friends who knew her as Bon Bon.

Her intrepid nature and indomitable spirit gave those who love Bonnie abundant fond memories of laughter, good conversations and happy visits.

Bonnie was preceded in death by her parents; Henry and Gladys, and her brother; Lawrence Wolters.

Bonnie leaves behind her son; Scott (Dianne) Williams of Sequim Washington, and her daughter; Kari Magill (George Fisher) of Ann Arbor, Michigan, and and Scott’s children; Kyle Williams Mink and Katie Williams Mink.

A time for celebrating Bonnie’s life is planned later this summer for her family and friends who shared her love of Washington and were held in her highest esteem.
