Peacefully passed away from her battle with cancer surrounded by her loving children at home, on Friday afternoon, July 26, 2019.
Bonnie Lynne Sugden (nee Roberts), of Orillia (born in Toronto), passed at 69 years young. Dearly loved mother of Kim and Shawn and ex-husband Bruce. Loving grandmother of her 4 beautiful grandchildren Abigail, Margot, Maren and Flynn who have brought so much joy into her life and journey. Survived by her mother Nora, her younger sister Barb and her partner Rodger and their children Brianne and Garth. As well as her youngest sister Bev, her partner Paul and her children Kyle and Cameron. Bonnie was the greatest mother her children could have asked for.
The resounding courage she's imparted in her children is the reason that we have the strength to move on in this trying time. She was always the strongest and brightest full moon. Bonnie was always looking out for others and was the most selfless individual on the planet. Even on her death bed, she was trying to look out and care for those around her. Case in point, as a retired nurse of 35 years, Mom insisted that we give a special appreciation to all of the care she was given in her final days from the angels at Soldiers 1, C5 and the LHIN (Local Health Integration Network). Specifically, Dr. Cape, Dr. Babcock, Dr. Reid and Dr. Beaudry from Soldiers Memorial Hospital as well her family physician Dr. Murphy.
At Bonnie's request, no funeral will take place. In lieu of a funeral or wake, Bonnie requested that letters of encouragement or favourite anecdotal Bonnie stories be sent to the Simcoe Funeral Home at 38 James Street E., Orillia ON L3V1L1 c/o Bonnie Sugden. Please no flowers or donations, only letters as requested above for her children Kim and Shawn to give them strength on their next journey.
