February 8, 1959 – February 25, 2018
Bonnie Wilson On Sunday morning, February 25, 2018, God dispatched an angel to walk with Bonnie; to close her eyes, seal her lips and command all body functions to cease. For the Angel’s assignment was to take her spirit to a place of eternal rest and joy. Bonnie Mary Delores Wilson was born February 8, 1959 to Kenneth and Maude Wilson. She was the youngest of their children, born in Morelia MIchoacan Mexico, although she was raised in Tucson, Arizona. She grew up on a farm where she loved to tend to her daily farm duties; this is where her love for animals began. Bonnie was a bright spirit that filled the room with light whenever she smiled. With an open heart and an open door, she welcomed anyone in. She loved to cook and would feed anyone who walked through her door; hungry or not. She had a green thumb and would spend hours outside with her plants. In her quiet time she wrote beautiful poetry. Bonnie accepted the Lord as her personal savior and was baptized December 12, 2010 at Revelation Missionary Baptist Church by Pastor Ed Hunter. Bonnie entered a new life of eternal rest on February 25, 2018. She leaves to cherish her precious memories three children: Natasha Wilson, Melissa Steward, (Father Reader Steward) Alann Travis Austin II (Amanda) Father Alann Travis Austin Sr. Honorary children: Francis Williams,(Ray), Tiaron Ross Sr., and Tommy Vijarro. Ten grandchildren: La’NIse Virgil, Alann Travis Austin III (Trey), Bailey Sanford, Lanae Wilson, Mekhi Steward, Ivon Virgil, Tylie Austin, Mariah Steward-Beckwith, Tyson Austin, Trevon Byrd. Honorary grandchildren: Tiaron Ross Jr., Elijah Lester, Kiara and Amar’e Williams, Tommy Vijarro Jr. Partner and best friend of many years Dave Crittenden, with a host of family and friends. Bonnie was a source of strength, love and support for her entire family. She will be greatly missed. You were an angel in the shape of our mom; we love you to the moon and back! Viewing 2pm-3pm immediately followed by a memorial service at Phillip Chapel CME on Saturday, March 3, 2018.

No words can describe one of the most beautiful persons whoever walked this earth. My dearest friend we shared our lives from the 3rd grade until now, we shared experiences and made memories that will never be forgotten. A part of me went with you as you left to go dance with the angels. A part that no one can every replace. From the minute you said “ Hi my name is Bonnie, what’s yours” that school day so long ago at white elementary school, you became an important and intricate part of my life, of my family’s lives. Your mom and dad, your brother became my mom and dad and brother, my mom and dad and brothers and sister became yours. The things we did, the things we talked about, the things we shared were ours, we became like one. Some people even mistaken us for one another. Through the good and not so good times our love, our friendship never faltered. The thought of your laughter and bright smile has never failed to brighten my day. God blessed me my dear friend with one of the greatest gifts, our friendship and as we mourn our loss and deal with our sadness and sorrow, we will also celebrate the happiness and joy of know you went home to be with our father God.
To Coco, Missy and Travis I tell you that there was no one more special then your mom. You three and the grandchildren you blessed her with, were her joy, her life. I give God my prayers that he will comfort and protected you all with his mercy and love through the trials and tribulations of life here on earth. You are her legacy, you will carry on her goodness, her generosity, her joyfulness, her spirit. You were blessed to have her for your mother and through you the world will always know Bonnie Wilson.
