She is survived by her parents, Emery and Lois LaShaw, brothers Duane (Sylvia) LaShaw, Dick (Patti) LaShaw, numerous nieces and nephew.
Bonnie is also survived by her daughter, Teresa Faulkner, Seattle, as well as seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
Bonita Ballard, Marysville, has been a lifelong friend of Bonnie’s.
She was preceded in death by her husband, John Newton, and son Brian Comer.
A special thank you to the staff at North Central Care Center and Sullivan Park Nursing Home for their excellent care and compassion for Bonnie.
