Obituary of Bonnie Gill

In Memory of Bonnie L Gill

Loving Wife, Mom, Mumma

Bonnie Lee Gill, 79, of Penfield, NY, passed away unexpectedly on December 26, 2022.

Bonnie was born on September 23, 1943, in Rochester, NY, and grew up in East Irondequoit, just a stone's throw from her beloved Seabreeze Park. She was a member of the first graduating class of Eastridge High School and helped to organize its class reunions over the decades.

On the evening of her 18th birthday celebration at the Pittsford Inn (AKA, the PI), Bonnie met a young man named Walt, who filled-up her dance card, to include a crazy new dance called The Twist. Bonnie and Walt were married within a year and spent over 61 years together enjoying every “twist and turn" of their journey.

Bonnie was the keystone of her family—her biggest joy. She is survived by her loving husband, Walt, daughters, Tamie (Mark), and Kellie (Larry); grandchildren, Colby (Allison), Parker (Erica), and Julia (Matt); great-grandson Lucas; sister, Karen (Jeanie), brother David (Judy); current fur-family members Saffie, Peyton, Murphy, Luna, and Reggie and friends who became family (you know who you are). She will be greatly missed by all.

The family will be holding a private service. In lieu of flowers or gifts, please consider a donation in her name to THON, a Penn State student-run philanthropy that focuses on raising money to fight childhood cancer.
