Bonnie Waunetah Heun, age 83, passed on from this life and joined Our Lord on December 26, 2010. She was born on October 23, 1927, in the town of Telegraph, Texas, to the late Arnold L. James and Augusta Burleson James. She married her lifelong partner, Roland John Heun (a veteran of three wars), and was a dedicated U. S. Air Force military wife. Their military service had Bonnie and Roland living in many locations around the world until military retirement in 1971. They settled in the Texas Hill Country that they loved so dearly and finally set down permanent roots and called this place "home". Bonnie was a loving mother to her seven children and all of their friends throughout the years. She was preceded in death by her husband of 51 years in 1998. She then cared for her mother until her passing in 2001. Bonnie is survived by daughter Linda and Ron Krautz of Winchester, TX, son Bobby and Kathy Heun of Watkins Glen, NY, daughter Nita and Keith Allison of Boerne, TX, daughter Barbara and Gary Ploch of Hunt, TX, daughter Pat Burney of Kerrville, TX, daughter Terry Heun of Kerrville, TX, son Bruce Heun of Kerrville, TX, and brother Thomas "Bud" and Trish James of Center Point, TX. She is also survived by four grandchildren, twelve great grandchildren and many loved nieces and nephews.
Bonnie loved her family and many friends. After raising her children, she was finally able to enjoy a few hobbies of her own. She and Roland loved nature and spent countless hours walking, fishing and camping. They also found a second home at the Kerrville Sports Center where she was actively involved with what became a passion for them both. They bowled every chance they could and traveled across the country doing what they loved. Bonnie eventually took a job at the local bowling center, where she served as league secretary and became involved with youth bowling and the senior Olympics. Many of the people she met during these times became extended family to her. The many dear friends and family members that she has touched over the years is a testament to her loving nature.
The family wishes to extend special thanks for the loving care given to Bonnie by Dr. James Young, Tommy Rucker of Mount Olive Baptist Church, Marie Glenewinkel of Pathways, Peterson Hospice as well as the caregivers and staff at Riverhills Health and Rehab.
