Dorothy Mae (Hartley) Bonner passed away peacefully on Jan. 9, 2020. She lived nine full decades touching the lives of many.
She was preceded in death by her husband of over 40 years, Frank O. Bonner. Together they owned and operated the Cardinal Fence Company, spending their winters boating and fishing in the Florida Keys. Her love of wildlife and flowers was almost as strong as her love for her three surviving children, Aleta Anthe Shipley (Christopher, deceased), Nikki DeSimio (Curt), and Mark Anthe (April). “Gigi” also leaves behind 6 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.
