Bonnie S. Palmiter



Loved wife, mother, and nana, Bonnie Palmiter gained her angel wings February 8, 2016 after her courageous 2 year battle with cancer. She was born November 14, 1957 to Robert Ellis and Nancy Eveland. Bonnie is survived by her husband, Karl; children, Jeff, Kasey and Randi-sue; son in law, Brian; daughter in law, Mechele; step son, Karl Jr. and her beloved grand babies, Rhylee, Karlee, Daelyn, Aleena, Megan, and Anthony; siblings, Bob, Tammy and Connie.

In 2013 mom was diagnosed with cancer that had spread throughout her body. She put on a brave face for everyone and her fight began. People that know mom know that she was a little spitfire and was always concerned about everyone else and not herself.

She would always put on the front that everything was fine and would risk being in pain for a week just to play with her grand babies for a couple hours. Her grand babies were the apple of her eyes as she was in there's.

Bonnie worked 30+ years as a teacher’s assistant in a special education setting helping kids learn in a way that no one else could. She wasn't just a teacher to them she was an advocate for their needs and also a friend they could confide in. Many often called her their second mom.

Mom touched a lot of lives and especially her kids. She not only was our mom but best friend.

Her final days were spent surrounded by family and her special friend, Sharon Wilson who loved her very much. Anyone that knows our mom knows that quality of existence far exceeds the quantity.

At her request no services will be held. A celebration of her life will be for immediate family and her best friends.

The Avoca Funeral Home, 22 N. Main St., Avoca is honored to serve the family of Bonnie S. Palmiter.
