Bonnie was born in Mount Morris on March 26, 1938, the daughter of John and Rebecca (Myra) Daniels. She was united in marriage to Wayne Woodbury on November 2, 1985, in Mount Morris and they resided in Chesaning, until the time of Bonnie’s death. She was an operator for Bell Telephone and eventually left and became a devoted stay at home mother of four children. Later, she went to work at Buick City in Flint, and the UAW local 599, until she retired. Bonnie was a member of SCAN (Senior Citizens Anti Crime Network) and the Chesaning Church of the Nazarene. Bonnie loved life, her family, and her cats. She was known for her love of garage sales, going to Soaring Eagle, gardening (especially flowers), spending time with family and friends, time at the lake, cooking, baking, bowling, music, playing cards, and sewing. She took great joy in teaching girls from her church how to bake and sew. She was infatuated with "Snoopy" and had a stuffed Snoopy angel with her while in Hospice.
Bonnie is survived by her husband, Wayne; children: Kellie and husband, Steve Rockwell of Washington, Staci Magee of Maryland, Curt Hunyady of Montana, and Eugene "Mick" Hunyady of Montana, several grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren; sister, Eunice and husband Earl Morgan; brothers: Jim and wife, Rita Daniels and John "Jigs" Daniels; many nieces and nephews and her wonderful neighbors that were like family to her, Alberto & Marina Guerrero and Jesse & Lucy Jimenez.
She was preceded in death by her parents; sisters: Sally Perez, Eileen Taylor, and Naomi Daniels; brothers: Asher Daniels, Isom "Junior" Daniels (who both died September 22, 1950, while serving in the Korean War), Jerry "Jeep" Daniels and Carl Daniels; and very special aunt, Mallie Perrault.
A special thanks to the staff of Hospice House of Shiawassee County, who showed the highest quality of compassion and care during her stay.
