Bonnie Jean (Fellow) Cottingham, 76, passed away on Sunday, May 17, 2020, at 4:25 p.m. at her residence, after a courageous battle with a rare cancer. She was born October 16, 1943 to the late Alvin and Rowena (Albright) Fellow. She married Paul Ronald Cottingham on November 9, 1963, and he survives.

Bonnie graduated from Kokomo High School. After being employed for Delco Electronics for 11 years, she decided to stay at home until her kids were raised. She had her own business, Creative Silks, and did a lot of craft shows in various towns. Bonnie loved to sing and has sung in churches, weddings and funerals. She even performed on television in Tennessee. Bonnie also loved to fish at our place on the lake and visit with our lake friends and watch all the hummingbirds and Baltimore Orioles, play bingo with her bingo friends, and play cards with friends and her sisters-in-law. She was an only child, and her husband's family was her family, and she loved them as much as they loved her. When we became Christians, we renewed our 25th wedding anniversary vows to celebrate our new life with Jesus as our Lord and Savior.

She is survived by her husband, Paul R. Cottingham; son, Gregory A. Cottingham; daughter, Regina L. Cottingham; grandson, Hunter A. Cottingham; granddaughters, Corinna N. Cottingham and Ali N. Sherrod; also surviving are many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Paul and family, I'm so sorry to hear of Bonnie's passing. I am a classmate of Bonnie's and during our senior year, we were together a lot. Especially riding to school together. I always loved seeing Bonnie in different places when I was home. I seen her last at Kroger's, I think last year and had a couple big hugs with her. We stood in breezeway and talked long time then talked on way out. Then still when stopped at the car. Loved her dearly and know she will be missed terribly. You all are in my prayers. I would love to be there but I am out of the country until July. Lots of love and prayers for all!!
