She is survived by the love of her life, Thomas Tucker, her two grateful daughters, Julie (Craig) Eudy and Jennifer Tucker (Ryan Slivinski); son, Mitchell Bidwell; sisters, Ruthanne Streif and Carol Simmons; brother, Rickey (Debbie) Bingheim; sister-in-law, Terry (Len) Bilheimer; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and neighbors, whom she all loved with her whole heart.
Her final days were filled with family, and amazing care from the doctors, nurses, and support staff at Memorial Hospital. The attention and support for Bonnie and her family was exemplary.
Bonnie was an amazing woman, the epitome of strength, and the matriarch of Team Tucker. She suffered for half of her time on earth with many physical afflictions, but never complained or stopped being a loving wife, mother, and friend. She loved her family more than they sometimes deserved, and she welcomed everyone into her life and heart with open arms. She doted over her grand-kitties and grand-puppies and reminded us that every day on this earth was a gift. Even through four battles with cancer, she worried more about her loved ones than herself. She proved to us all that strength, grace, and a smile will shine through even in the darkest times, and love can really conquer all. She will live on in the smiles of loved ones and the memories that we will hold dear in our hearts. Our Bonnie is finally at peace.
