Obituary for Bonnie McGill

Bonnie was born on February 4, 1944 in Bay City, Michigan to Dale and Frieda (Felsing) Willett. She was the third of four children. She spent her childhood years living with her parents and siblings - Eugene, Geraldine (Ulman), and Clinton - in Au Gres, a small city on the shore of Saginaw Bay in Arenac County.

She graduated from Au Gres High School in 1962. Afterward, she moved to Oakland County. Her daughter, Denise, was born in December 1965, and her son, Neil, was born in July 1969, each at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, MI. Bonnie was a supportive mother. She also spent a considerable amount of time working in retail locations, such as J.L. Hudson’s, Mervyn’s, Dancers, and, later, Kohls. Naturally, this fed her habit for “everything should match” clothes shopping!

On July 13, 1985, Bonnie married the love of her life, Donald P. McGill. They spent many years living in Howell, Michigan. In December 2000, they moved to Leonard, Michigan. Her favorite pastimes were reading, gardening at her lovely home, and traveling with Don - especially cruises and winters in Panama City Beach, Florida. In addition to being a wonderful mother and wife, Bonnie was an exceptional “Grammy.” Her grandchildren have hosts of memories from going to “Grammy and Grampy’s,” where they were spoiled with love, not to mention candy!

Unfortunately, in March 2014, Bonnie suffered a major stroke. Since then, Don has cared for her with fierce dedication. He is especially thankful for the assistance of several caregivers, including Tina, Stacey, Kimberly, Mellisa, Claire, and nurse Katie Loran, who helped care for Bonnie physically, and Pastor Don, who provided invaluable spiritual support. Bonnie’s husband Don would also like to express thanks to their neighbors, Matt and Angie, who offered immeasurable friendship and help.
Bonnie was preceded in death by her parents, her brother Eugene, and her sister Geraldine. She is survived by Don (her loving husband of 36 years), her brother Clinton, her children Neil (Christina) and Denise Tymensky (Holger Kuester), her stepdaughter Lori (Scott) Rush, her grandchildren - Anastasia & Ethan Tymensky and Alexander & Cristian Carter and Levi & Caden Rush - and her cousin and lifelong friend, Judy Voorhees.
