Bonnie was born November 15, 1950, in Muscatine, Iowa, the daughter of Max D. and Marjorie J. (Wakeland) Edwards. She graduated from Muscatine High School and from the University of Iowa with a Masters Degree in Social Work.

Bonnie dedicated her life to helping others, both as a social worker and hospice social worker in nursing homes and family homes across eastern Iowa.

She was an avid lover of cats, sweet tea, and drum corps, which her son Shane participated in. She introduced her grandchildren to some of their favorite activities by taking them to swimming lessons, public parks, piano lessons, and movies.

Bonnie was kind to everyone she met, and frequently made friends with complete strangers by sharing personal experiences. Her family will miss traveling, shopping, and trying new things with her.

She will be deeply missed by her son, Shane (Susan) Sissel of Williamsburg; grandchildren: Navarre Sissel, Paris (Marshall) Young, Kyrah Sissel and Tieryn Sissel; brother, Dennis (Pat) Edwards of Muscatine; nephew, Dennis, Jr. (Jennifer) Edwards; and one niece, Charity Edwards.

She was preceded in death by her parents and son, Jay Sissel in 2001.
