From MARLENE Schoeneck (Carlsen) on June 22nd, 2016
Bonnie was my very  first friend when my  dad was transferred to Rocford in 1956. She befriended  me, an only child with limited social skills around other children. She and Mike ultimately rented an apartment from my dad and our families lived across the hall from one another.

When they moved to Prophetstown we lost touch. I only managed  visiting her once there. I will always remember as a loving, caring individual who took me under her wing.

Love you Bonnie!

From Jeannette Whitman on September 10th, 2016
Some people remain in our hearts long after they've left this earth. Penny was larger than life while she was here and larger than death when she left. What a sweet soul that loved everyone and was so easy to love in return. I can hear her laugh even now and I will never forget all the giggles we shared.
She knew heaven on earth with Tom and their sons and she fought so hard to be here for them as long as she could. I pray we can someday hold hands and giggle again. Til we meet again, my beautiful friend.
