BONERTZ NoneePosted: January 18th, 2013
It is with sadness in our hearts and tears in our eyes that we announce the passing of Nonee.
Nonee was born March 9, 1946 in Pincher Creek, AB and passed away quietly January 14, 2013 in Pincher Creek, AB, surrounded by love.
Nonee was a courageous soul that endured every hardship with grace and strength. Nonee is survived by her loving husband of 46 years Bob, her daughters, Wendi (Henry) McCarthy, Heather (Craig) Gallant and daughter-in-law Kim (Wylie) Orser, brothers Ted (Betty) Whipple and Perry (Bernice) Whipple and her sister Sara Lynn Prout. She also had 8 treasured grandchildren, Davis, Anna, Beth and Emmett McCarthy, Lane and Jacey Bonertz and Reid and Cole Gallant. Nonee will happily be reunited in Heaven with her son Glen, her daughter Tammy, her parents Norm and Edith Whipple and her sisters Valerie and Marjorie.
Nonee knew how to raise a family, run a farm and host a party and she did them all with joy and light which were contagious. She believed that friends are the family you choose, and these friends meant the world to her. She was known for her constant beautiful smile, her heart-warming hugs, her inner strength and her loving nature. She was a hard worker, always there to lend a helping hand and completely devoted to those she loved. She was a woman like no other and she touched the lives of many.
Nonee, thank you for sharing your life with us. What a gift you were, and our lives are better for having known you. You will be loved and missed until the end of time.
