Bonnie Fuller

Bonnie passed away Wednesday, December 3, 2014 at Life Care Center in Plainwell.

She was born October 29, 1943 in Plainwell the daughter of Lester “Shorty” and Viona Fleeman. Bonnie was one of six children and lived most of her younger years in Plainwell and in Orangeville where she helped her father build the family’s brick house on Marsh Road. Later she met and married Eugene Guerin and had two children. Although the marriage was unsuccessful it never deterred Bonnie from her main goal which was to provide for her kids. She wasn’t able to finish high school so she did return and completed her GED. She then applied to Parker Hannifin in Otsego and was hired as an assembler of hydraulic pumps and worked there for approximately 15 years.She made sure both of her children graduated from High School always stressing the importance to them from Kindergarten on.

Bonnie was a people person, if you knew Bonnie you knew love and laughter. She would always find a way to ease your troubles just by being herself. Bonnie was always a lover of the kitchen scene, cooking, baking and canning. She positively set the bar for potato soup and Missouri mud cookies. She was also a huge lover of animals. Once she married Raymond Fuller in 1989 there were plenty of animals around; dogs, cats, birds, ducks, chickens and at one point goats. She had a very happy life even when her health was failing her humor never did. She kept us all going with that beautiful smile and snarky attitude.

Surviving are her daughter, Mindi Jean (Vern) Oetman; her grandchildren, great –grandchildren, her sister, Ruth Ann Charles; brother –in-laws, John Madden and Wayne Baughman; numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Raymond; her son, Robert; her brothers, Carl and Lester Lee; and sisters, Lillian Baughman and Rhonda Madden.

Cremation has taken place.

A Memorial Service will be held Wednesday December 10, 2014 at 11:00 A.M. at the Winkel Funeral Home, Otsego, Pastor Merlyn Jones officiating. Burial will take place at Hillside Cemetery in Plainwell at a later date.

Contributions in memory of Bonnie may be made to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).
