Obituary for LAVONDA "BONNIE" GILLETTE

Lavonda “Bonnie” Gillette, age 81, of Republic, Missouri, passed away at 12:30 p.m., on Wednesday, April 17, 2019, in the Ozark Methodist Manor, Marionville, Missouri, with her daughter Ellen by her side. She was born to Joseph and Grace Wehenkel in Scappoose Oregon on May 12, 1937, the youngest of six children.

She was best known by her nickname, Bonnie. She was such an ornery lady, she loved to scare people, but was not too keen on being scared herself. Her grandkids were always spoiled with candy when they went to see her. You could always guarantee that she would have tootsie pops, but don't expect to get an orange one, because those were her favorites and were hidden for her to later eat. She loved to shop and was always picking up some kind of trinket or candy to give to her grand and great grandchildren. She loved all flowers and always had a small flower garden going. The brighter the flower, the more she liked it.

Bonnie was preceded in death by two of her daughters; her parents; and five siblings.

She was married to Roger and had six children, Nancy, Ellen, Helen, Mitchell, Morgan, and Mark; 14 grandchildren; 22 great grandchildren; and one great-great grandchild.

A visitation will be held at 9:00 a.m., with the memorial service to begin at 10:00 a.m., on Saturday, April 20, 2019 in Meadors Funeral Home, Republic. Family and friends may share online condolences at www.meadorsfuneralhome.com
