“Rev. Frederick Bonneville, only son of Guillaume Bonneville and his first wife, Rosalie (Stone) Bonneville, was born at Longuiel, Quebec, Canada, July 18, 1862. A few years later his parents moved to Montreal, Canada, where he was educated in Montreal College, later became a member of the college faculty, and eventually studied for the priesthood in the same institution, and in 1887 was ordained a priest of the Roman Catholic church. Immediately after ordination he was sent to the Church of the Precious Blood in Holyoke, Massachusetts, as curate, remaining there two years, going thence to a Mission in the towns of Mittineague and Long Meadow, continuing with the Mission three years. On May 20, 1893, he came to the Church of the Assumption in Chicopee, Massachusetts, and…served that congregation [from that time forward].” 1

“Father Bonneville directed the activities of the French parish for over 39 years. On the event of the silver anniversary of his work on August 1, 1912, he was presented a purse of $1500 silver…The passing of the priest [was] deeply felt, not only by his parishioners but the citizens of [Chicopee] as a whole. He was a splendid spiritual adviser as well as an able administrator and his name will be long remembered in the parish.” 2
