Bonnie Deanna Fuller, born on February 18, 1941 in Chilliwack, B.C. died unexpectedly in her home at Canoe, B.C. on January 15, 2014.

All too soon she has left behind her 3 children; Donn (Kenn Johnston) Fuller; Morgan (James) Kazanci; and Teresa Fuller; her 5 grandchildren; Jimmy Vandergrift; Sarah and Marilyn Newnes; David and Daniel Kazanci. Her brothers and sisters; Alex (Linda) Murray; Jim Murray; Pat (Frank) Fraser; Anne (Robin) Caldwell; Fran (Ric) Laidlaw; Dolores (Frank) Osborne; Kathy (Dan) Crawford as well as many nieces and nephews.
Bonnie’s home was the gathering place for family. The coffee was always on and muffins ready to enjoy with the conversation. She was a secure confidant, always available and unwavering in her support towards her immediate family members. She was our rock. Those who were troubled would find peace with her real-life wisdom. She dedicated herself to raising her family and then began a 30 year career managing Centenoka Park Mall. After retiring in January 2012 she discovered she had a natural talent for painting. To her joy she found a passionate pastime at which she flourished, spending almost every day sitting in the sun at her kitchen table with paintbrush in hand. We were all so proud and impressed with her work. Our Mom, Grandma, Sister, Aunt and Friend will be missed, but her influence, wisdom, kindness and caring will go forth along in our hearts. Thank you Bonnie for sharing your life ~ so beautifully, with us.
Please join us in a celebration of her life at the Salmon Arm Elks Hall on Saturday, February 1, 2014 at 1:30 pm. Tea and refreshments to follow.
