Bonnie M. Clark
January 1, 1925 – February 4, 2013

Long-time area resident, Bonnie M. Clark of Walla Walla died on February 4, 2013 at the age of 88.

Bonnie was born January. 1, 1925 in Pomeroy, WA to Charles and Alma (Watson) Munger. The family lived in various locations before settling permanently in Walla Walla. Bonnie started 4th grade at Washington School and from there went on to Walla Walla High School where she graduated in 1943.

On April 3, 1947, she and Norbert “Swede” Clark were married. After her marriage, Bonnie was a homemaker for several years before returning to work at the Army Corps of Engineers where she was a mail and records clerk. She retired in 1972. Swede died in March 1997.

Bonnie enjoyed bowling and for numerous years participated on several teams/leagues and even traveled to competitions around the Northwest with her bowling team.
She was an active member of the FOE #26 Ladies’ Auxiliary and participated on the Auxiliary Drill Team, traveling with the team around the country to compete in competitions; she looked forward to her time working in the Drill Team booth during the Fair, where she sold untold numbers of foot long hotdogs.

Bonnie was an avid reader and did needlepoint. She loved attending school activities and sporting events that involved her grandchildren and later her great-grandchildren. She especially delighted in her weekly visits to the Curly Q Hair Salon. (Thank you, Leila Hust, for taking such good care of Miss B.)

Bonnie is survived by her daughter, Sharyl (Mike) Dill and daughter-in-law Sue Clark. Grandchildren include Sarah (Carl) Miller, Heather (Will) Rucker, Morgan Clark and Mike (Diane) Dill, Jr. Great-grandchildren are Nikole Miller, Emmaleigh Miller, Ciara Rucker, Alex Dill and Erich Miller. There are numerous nieces and nephews that also survive her. Bonnie was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, her son (Tom Clark), brother (Dave Munger), sister (Josie Jones), niece (Marilyn Martin) as well as life long friend Donna Woodard Jackson.

A graveside service will be held later this spring. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Walla Walla Community Hospice or charity of donors’ choice through Mountain View-Colonial DeWitt, 1551 Dalles Military Road, Walla Walla, WA 99362.
