Passed away on June 29, 2019
It is with great sadness that the family of Bonnie May Watson, announces her passing on Saturday, June 29, 2019 at the LaVerendrye General Hospital with family by her side. Bonnie had a long battle with many health issues and fought through them with mighty courage and a forever optimistic attitude until her last day at the age of 89. Bonnie was born on May 2, 1930 to Sandy and Nellie McFayden and was the youngest of 8 children. She met Gordon Watson as a young woman and they were united in marriage on October 19, 1949. They lived in Fort Frances all their lives where they raised 3 children. Bonnie devoted her life to her family and was always there to lend her support in any situation. She loved having her family around and spent many summers enjoying her grandchildren and great grandchildren swimming in her pool, which was one of her favorite places to be. Bonnie was an avid bridge player and enjoyed many years with her bridge club friends. In later years she took her love of bridge to the Senior's Centre where she played on Wednesdays and helped others learn the game. Bonnie was also a volunteer worker at the Senior’s Centre for several years. She was a long time member of the Presbyterian Church where she was an elder. She loved working on her crosswords puzzles and playing games on her iPad. She was predeceased by her parents Sandy and Nellie; husband Gordon and her 5 sisters and 2 brothers. Bonnie leaves behind her children Carla (Randy) Krawchuk, Rick (Lorraine) Watson and Sherri (Frank) Redford; grandchildren Terry Krawchuk, Tana (Mike) Mann, Allison (David) Blake, Jennifer (Colin) LeBlanc, Lauren and Kristen Watson; great grandchildren Nolan and Ainsley Mann, Jayla, Cassie and Gunnar Krawchuk, Kaden and Kyler Blake, Anna and Emily LeBlanc. She will be greatly missed by her dear friends Marg Kircher and Rhoda Dixon. The family would like to thank Dr. Ruppenstein for going above and beyond and taking such wonderful care of our mother. We really appreciate all you did and your compassion towards her. She thought very highly of you.

Your beautiful smile still radiants with love and kindness just as I remember you all those years ago in the Fort as a young girl. When we lived is Shevlin Towers I use to spend a lot of time at your house, we would go for walks and play cards. Dad & Mom always made sure that we would visit you & Uncle Gordie every time we made it to the Fort for summer holidays. I am sorry I have never made it back for a last visit. You will be missed and thought of often with love.
Our condolences to you all
(Diane, Leslie Anne, Todd, Tyler & Dana)
