Bonnie Joyce Colhour

July 23, 1936July 17, 2020

On Friday, July 17 the Lord called Bonnie Joyce Holmes Colhour (Gran-Gran) home. She always took great strides to make sure she did her morning and evening devotionals. The Lord was very important in her life. All that knew her would say that she was a very knowledgeable, giving person and very straight forward to the point as in Ms. Manners and Ms. Etiquette, but we loved her anyway.

Bonnie was born on July 23, 1936in Gant, Oklahoma the daughter of Claude and Flora Holmes. On December 31, 1966 she married William Perry Colhour, they were together until his passing in 1997. She was preceded in death by her daughter Linda Susan Colhour Mauterstock and grandsons; Shane Hickey, Robert Brignac, Kendall Perry Mauterstock and great grandson Riley Hickey. She was also preceded in death by her siblings Claude J. Holmes and Deloris Holmes Gillean.

She is survived by her brother, William Holmes of Cooper, Texas and sister Helen Sue Banks of Paris, Texas. Also surviving are her daughters Janet Felton, Karen Theunissen, Kathy Aven, and Ruby Hickey: grandchildren Dawn Simonton, Tina Cooley, Kayla LeGrand, Sheree Aven, Chad Theunissen, Kay Savant, William Brignac, Brandon Mauterstock, Christian Mauterstock, Eric Felton, Jordan Felton, and Chad Cavanaugh plus18 great grandchildren.
