Bonnie Eva Gaudet

May 28, 1967August 18, 2019

GAUDET: Bonnie Eva. On Sunday, August 18, 2019, Bonnie Eva Gaudet, loving wife, mother, and grandmother, passed away at the age of 52.

Bonnie was born on May 28, 1967, in Westlock, AB, to Jean and Anne Campbell. Bonnie was married to Darryl Sidney Properzi in 1985 and they would have two daughters, Amanda and Jillian, and one son, Maxwell. Darryl lost his battle to cancer in 2000 at the age of 33. Widowed and a total babe, Bonnie met her love, Omer Gaudet, and they eloped on November 1, 2002. Omer has two daughters, Breanna and Miranda. Together, they raised their five kids in St. Albert, Alberta. In 2014, Bonnie and Omer moved from Sturgeon Country, Alberta, to West Kelowna, BC, and who could blame them?

Bonnie’s passions were her family and her pugs. She never went anywhere without them--the pugs that is! Her other passions included summers at the cabin at Skeleton Lake, boating on the Okanagan, and travelling with Omer--destinations including yearly trips to Vegas, as well as family trips to Mexico and the Dominican Republic.

Bonnie was preceded in death by her father, Jean Campbell. She is survived by her mother, Anne Campbell, her husband, Omer Gaudet, and her five children, Amanda Properzi-Robinson (Lee), Jillian Properzi, Maxwell Properzi-Gaudet, Breanna Gaudet, and Miranda Gaudet, her two pugs, Ozzie and Alan, and her grandson, Bodhi Darryl McCluskie. She is also survived by her brother, Walter, his wife, and their three daughters. She will be dearly missed by all those who had the honour of knowing her.

A Celebration of Life will be held for Bonnie on Sunday, September 15th, 2019, at the St. Albert Inn (156 St Albert Trail, St. Albert) from 2:00 pm until 5:30 pm for family and close friends.

My deepest condolences to Bonnie's family.
Although Bonnie was only 4 years younger than me, I have a clear memory of visiting the old farm when I was only five years old. (Where Jean, Don, Curtis and my dad Allan grew up.) Bonnie was just a baby maybe a year old. Although I was only about 5 years old, I remember how she laughed and laughed when I made a funny face. I loved my cousin since that day and always marvelled at how her laugh and smile would light up a room!
Bonnie may be gone from this place but she will live on in our hearts and minds! God Bless!

Omer, Miranda & Family,
We are so sorry to hear of Bonnie's passing. Bonnie was a beautiful person. We really enjoyed getting to know her while at the many arenas and dinners in between.
May you find peace in the many wonderful memories you shared.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Growing up with Amanda, I spent a lot of time in the Properzi house. Bonnie was always thoughtful and made sure her house was full of love. Driving Amanda and I to all our sports and activities and keeping us in line. She was for sure the coolest mom we knew.
Sending lots of love to everyone in the family. I am so sorry for your loss.

From birthday parties, to sleep-overs, we had a lot of fun as kids. Bonnie had a tire swing that we would have lots of fun getting dizzy on. Her dad had this swamp buggy that we would go for rides in.
Most recently, Bonnie and family opened there doors, last minute and in the middle of the night to my daughter stranding in BC. They already had a full house, but made room.
Deepest sympathies for Bonnie's family, and prayers while you find strength during this trying time.

Bonnie was one of those special people who always had a such a beautiful smile and time to chat no matter where or when. Kindness and love came from her soul and it was plain to see. An amazing woman who will be deeply missed by her family but have no doubt that they will continue her legacy of caring and love. Bonnie, thank you for all the fun times at the rink over the years. Rest peacefully.

My deepest condolences, I am so sorry to hear about Bonnie's passing. I got to know Bonnie in school she was older than me by 2 years but always had time to talk. She was someone I looked up to. There was never a day or time where she didnt take time to talk to me because of her friendship I made it thro some tough situations. We lost contact when she moved to St Albert but did meet up at the arena for ringuette, it felt like we lost no time every time we got together. She will be greatly missed. RIP my friend❤

My deepest condolences to your entire family. I knew Bonnie in her early days when she had just graduated as a dental assistant and I had just become a dentist. We were two rookies who worked knee to knee for many years. She was my right hand and friend for all that time. She was an absolutely amazing lady as she worked full time with me and raised 3 wonderful children - always with a smile on her face. We lost touch after she moved away. I was so glad to hear she had found love and happiness again. My heart breaks for all of you in losing such a wonderful person so early in her life. God bless you.

Dear Omer & Family,
We were so sorry to hear of Bonnie's passing. I always loved visiting with her at ringette games and missed you all when you moved to beautiful BC - she was so supportive of her kids and all their sports. She sure loved you & the kids & I know she will be missed.

We met Bonnie and her amazing husband and beautiful children at Sarah and Walter’s wedding. Our family had the chance to spend time with them here and there over the years. Our boys making some wonderful memories one summer at Skeleton Lake. Although we were not family, she always made us feel like we were. The loss of a mother is profound. Hold your family close. We are thinking of you and honouring her memory in remembrance of the many times she made us feel like we always belonged.
