Bonita Lea Price
August 10, 1925 – June 3, 2021
Bonita L. Price, Beloved mother of Jim (Christine) and Greg; cherished grandmother of Gavin and Nathan Price was called home to the Lord on June 3, 2021.
She was predeceased by her husband Harry and nine siblings. Bonita was the youngest of ten and grew up in Logan Iowa. Family was most important to her, and she often spoke of cherished memories of her childhood and the love and values she received from her parents.
She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Commerce from the University of Iowa in Iowa City where she met her future husband Harry Price. She and Harry moved to Denver to be close to her sister Regina and her husband Don.
Bonita and Harry married in Denver on December 29, 1950. They were blessed with two sons Jim and Greg. Greg had special needs diagnosed when he was two years old. Bonita was the best most caring mother to her two boys, and the greatest advocate for Greg and his needs. She amazingly remained his legal guardian up until the time of her passing.
In the 1950's Bonita worked for Denver Chicago trucking company as an administrative assistant and later for Jefferson County public schools as a cook. She also volunteered at the Ridge home for the Developmentally disabled doing clerical work. Bonita was a Christian woman and a member of the Covenant Church of Arvada for many years. She loved to cook and marveled at the opportunity to cook delicious meals on holidays and for special occasions for her family and friends. In her later years Bonita enjoyed music, card playing, scrabble, crossword puzzles and watching Jeopardy. She was so loved. She is forever in our hearts and will be greatly missed for the kind, caring and funny person that she was.
Contributions in her name can be made to Developmental Disabilities Resource Center (Lakewood Co), or Elevation Hospice (Broomfield Co).

Just a note to let you know how sorry we all are here on Glen Road for your loss. Aunt Bon was always so upbeat and happy when we talked to her. She always would share good news and a joke or two.

Just want you to know that we are praying for you and your family. Gods blessings to you all at this time and for the days and years to come. Things like this are not easy, but you will get through it all. Love The Sorick Family
