    Bonnie lived life to the fullest. I’ll always remember are bonfire chats and our gatherings on Kuno Trail. Your smile and low key demeanor regardless of the situation was admirable. You may be gone before our eyes but never forgotten. My condolences to all the family especially Greg, Barb, Wes and Sam.

    Hello Skaar family. I am sad and sorry to hear about your great loss. My family (and mom especially) reach out with sympathy and want you to know you’re in our thoughts and prayers. I am blessed to have many fond memories of your mom and continue to feel grateful for always feeling welcomed into your home. From trips to Coachman’s for golf or a drive to St. Mary’s Hospital to visit Pam, I was made to feel like part of your family. Bonnie and Bill were awesome. Thank you for the wonderful memories.
    Wishing you peace,
    Steve Hestnes

    I probably haven’t seen Bonnie in 30 years, since I was a child and she (and Bill) owned the best daycare around which was, conveniently, located kitty-corner from my house. I used to help with laundry in the morning, play with the dog, boss around the younger kids (haha!)….we walked in the Syttende Mai parade every year, we watched movies upstairs in her and Bill’s home, made playdough in the basement, and I can remember the two yellow station wagons where we would cram all of us kids and go to the mudhole or out to Lake Kegonsa or swimming lessons at the high school. Oh, and the bus picked us up on the corner. She was a fantastic lady and I’ve probably spent the better part of the last ten years looking for her and Bill, not knowing where they went after they sold the daycare and not knowing where to even start. I’m sorry to hear of her passing.
