Obituary of Bonnie Marilyn Harrington
Bonnie Marilyn Harrington
Age 85, our loving mother and grandmother was called unexpectedly home to her
Lord on December 25, 2018. She was a true believer of our Savior Jesus Christ.
Born May 29, 1933 in Butternut, Michigan.
Surviving are her 3 children, Jeffery (Gail) Harrington, Marcia Harrington-Galey,
and Stewart (Stacey Riley) Harrington; 3 grandchildren, Gabriel (Elizabeth)
Harrington, Jordan Austin Harrington, and Carli Grace Galey; and many other
family members and friends.
Bonnie worked as a Dental Assistant in her youth for Dr. Doyle. She worked at
Melville Emblem making trophies for Sporting events. She worked at a
Commercial laundry facility. She also Nannied two wonderful boys that were
friends of our family. She found satisfaction in helping others. Attending Lansing
Community College, she took a Nurses Aid course, but never put it to use. Her
main focus was her family. She was a loving wife to her beloved Rex who
preceded her in death July 1, 2017. She was such a caring and loving person
spending time raising her 3 children. Her love of gardening and landscape was her
passion. She loved the Arts. She painted with oil. She was an avid reader; you
should see her Library! Photography was another talent. Her Grandson Gabe and
his wife Liz loved her photos of their wedding better than the hired photographer.
Her love of all genres of music was carried through to her children as well. She
had a huge heart for animals of all kinds.
We will ALWAYS carry your memory in our Hearts. Thank you for everything!
A special thank you to the staff of McLaren Hospital and Hospice. They were
wonderful to our Mother, taking great care of her needs and comfort.
