Bonnie Marie Roberts – Huron
Bonnie Marie Roberts, 74, of Huron, passed away at 8:35 p.m. Monday, November 17, 2014, at Mitchell Manor Living and Rehabilitation Center.
Born December 3, 1939, in Lawrence County, she was the daughter of Charles and Lillie Mae (Pitman) Simpson. She married Walter Eugene Roberts April 15, 1961.
Bonnie worked a few years at the Trav-Ler plant in Orleans, where she met her husband-to-be. She was a homemaker until beginning a 34 year career with the Mitchell Community Schools. Bonnie worked in the Huron Elementary cafeteria until the school closed in 1982. She was then a teacher’s aide for 18 years at Hatfield Elementary until her retirement in 2004.
She graduated from Huron High School in 1958 and was an active member of the Huron Church of God. Bonnie served in many capacities throughout her adult life. She was serving as the church secretary-treasurer, Sunday school secretary-treasurer, chairperson of the advisory council, and president of the Ladies Missionary Society, a position she had held for 36 years at the time she became ill in September 2013. Bonnie was also a former 4-H Leader and Cub Scout den mother. Bonnie enjoyed a variety of activities such as sewing, reading, gardening, quilting, and was known as an excellent cook. She was most content when seated on a riding mower, or the family’s small farm tractor mowing grass. Always a supporter of her husband’s and son’s activities, she continued with the grandchildren, as she seldom missed a 4-H activity, sports event, musical, awards program, or any other endeavor they might be involved with.
