Bonnie Hope Porro
September 11, 1946 – January 30, 2021
Bonnie Hope Porro, age 74, of Colleyville, Texas passed away on Saturday, January 30, 2021. Bonnie was born September 11, 1946 in York, PA.
Bonnie was a nurse for 35 years. She enjoyed playing the piano, sewing, gourmet cooking and traveling. She volunteered at the George W. Bush Presidential Library, and is a card carrying conservative. She was a nurse, mother, wife, grandmother, business owner, volunteer, cook and loved entertaining friends. Bonnie traveled to the Great Pyramids of Giza, Greece, Turkey, Malta, Canada, Mexico and have been to many of the states. In short, my death is not an ending but the beginning of joyous eternal life with my Lord. It completes a wonderful journey here that includes 74 years of love, laughter and bumps in the road with my husband Mario who has made me very happy. So that we may all be together in heaven, my last prayer is that if you have not done so, that you would today, accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior. John 3:16
Left to treasure her memory are her husband, Mario R. Porro; children, Maria Rushton-Clem Rivera; Grandchildren, Anthony R. Rivera, Marcos G. Rivera and Isabelle Maria Cruz Rivera; brother, John Geiselman; and many wonderful friends I had through the years , all of whom enriched my life for more than I did theirs.
A Memorial Service will be held at 2:00PM Friday, Feb. 5, 2021 at Northeast Baptist Church, 1000 Davis Blvd., Southlake, Texas.
In Lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the SPCA or local shelter. Bonnie was an animal lover and member of the Alliance of Therapy Dogs.

Andy and I will always remember the first time we met Bonnie and Mario on the Branson Scenic Railway Dinner train. We were paired with them for that dinner and had a wonderful time getting to know each other and striking up a nice friendship. This fun was repeated and we had looked forward to seeing them again on another dinner train ride. Alas, that will not be but when we next ride we will add thoughts of Bonnie to our pre-dinner thanksgiving.

Dearest Mario, Maria, Anthony, Marcos, and Isabelle,
My deepest and most heartfelt sympathy over the loss of Bonnie, beloved wife, mother, and grandmother. I know how much she loved each of you and how you were all the center of her life. I pray for your comfort in your time of loss.
From the day I met Bonnie, I have been so blessed that she and I grew in friendship for each other.
I could always count on Bonnie to be there if I had concerns or needs in my life and she would give me help that was always based on God's love. Always, her answers and advice would see me through. She was such a giving and caring woman and showed her love to everyone she met. She always put her friends needs before her own. I will always love her for that.
Best Memory - Birthday Card. I received a card last year for my Birthday and when I opened it, this large, blue butterfly flew out - it was wound up with a rubber band and flew out and scared the daylights out of me. I called Bonnie and told her I was so startled. We both laughed so hard and I almost fell out of my chair. She thought it was so funny to do that. That was Bonnie. She got a kick out of this and did the same thing to many other friends she had. I still have that butterfly on the shelf in my office.
I have so many more beautiful memories - I could write a book.
A closing note - Bonnie - You are with our Lord Jesus now and you are at peace and free. You will always be loved, cherished, and remembered as a beautiful, loving friend by everyone who knew you. We will miss you so much.
I know I will be with you some day in Heaven.
Rest in Peace Dear Friend Bonnie.

I am so sorry for your loss. Bonnie was a dear friend to me. She never hesitated to open her home to her friends and family! She loved her family, friends and pets! The first time Bonnie,Lisa, and I went to lunch I told a story about an obnoxious worker that had been working on our bathroom. I said he was probably from back East. Lisa asked if I knew where Bonnie was from, of course I did and had probably just insulted her. But she was very gracious and we all just laughed. We laughed about that often, she was a good sport! I truly grew to love my friend, and I am devastated to lose her. But I know I will see Bon again. My memories of her are precious.
