Bonnie Lou Rose, 66, of Mansfield, a family reunion took place in Heaven as she was welcomed by her mom, dad and several other family on Thursday, January 19, 2023 after a hard battle with cancer.
Bonnie, affectionately was referred to as “Ninny” by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Bonnie was born November 30, 1956 in Mansfield, Ohio. She was the daughter of Billy and Angelena Rose. Bonnie attended Mansfield Senior High, and she retired from Deca Manufacturing as an administrative assistant. A woman of faith, Bonnie attended several churches when she was able; Honey Creek Baptist Church, Dean Road Freewill Baptist Church and Belmont Community Church. When she was not able to attend, she faithfully watched services online. A strong, independent and extremely stubborn woman, Bonnie took care of things on her own without much assistance. She always said, “You don’t depend on a man to do things, you learn to do them on your own.” She stood by this throughout life, working on her own car, doing home remodeling projects and so much more. She struggled to ask others for help, because she simply could do it herself. She was outspoken and spoke her mind, even if it might hurt your feelings a little. You could always count on her to tell you the truth; good or bad. Bonnie was always cracking a joke, even during her hard and painful battle with cancer, she continued to try and make light of it by constantly joking and laughing. Wearing a smile even when she had to force it.
