daughter of Jackson Graydon Garrett and Elizabeth Christine Shiflett
Virginia B. Newman, "Bonnie" to all, went home to her Lord on Saturday June 25.
She was born Dec. 3, 1942 and raised in Arlington, Virginia.
She has lived in the Chelan Valley since 1966. Bonnie's working career in Chelan started with Valley Evaporating Company, then Blue Chelan until it became Chelan Fruit and most recently a Wal Mart associate.
She also worked for the Chelan Irrigation District and the Chelan Rustlers Saddle Club.
She was a member of the Chelan Riverwalk Church and also attended Northshore Bible Church in Manson.
Bonnie gave her time to many volunteer organizations including Lake Chelan Valley EMT for six years, Habitat for Humanity, LEPC Chelan Douglas Counties, Citizens Advisory Committee to LINK, Certified CPR Instructor, Apple Valley American Red Cross Board of Directors member, past president of the Soroptimist Club, Manson Kiwanis, and the Chelan Douglas County NH3 Response Committee.
She also helped raise funds and gather volunteers for many projects in the Chelan Valley including her last event, the Chelan Century Ride.
But her greatest joys in life were her four grandchildren Dakota, Blake, Marquesa and Reilly Anne Dixon of Bothell.
She adored them and spent many hours enjoying their activities. We love you so much Granma Apple Bonnie!
She is survived by her brother Don Garrett; sisters Nancy Garrett and Anne Powers; daughter Karen, son-in-law Arne; her other children Terri, Paul, Cheyenne Stocker, and grandchildren.
She will be greatly missed by her family, many friends and little adopted dog 'Dakota'.
Her memorial service will be held at the Northshore Bible Church, July 12, at 2 p.m.
Donations can be made to the Apple Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross or the Lake Chelan Valley Habitat for Humanity. Arrangements have been entrusted to Precht Rose Chapel.
