Bonnie Jean Wolford

| October 28, 2020

Bonnie Jean Wolford, 93, of Frazeysburg, went to be with her Lord on Tuesday, Oct. 27, 2020 at her home. Her loving family was at her side.

Born Jan. 4, 1927 in Frazeysburg, she was a daughter of the late Clay and Dolly (Yingling) Anderson. She was an active member of New Beginnings Ministries in Warsaw. Bonnie was a woman of strong faith with prayers that could move mountains. She stayed up late at night to make sure her family was home safely, relying on the Lord to answer her prayers when truly that was all she had since she had no telephone or car for years. With love and compassion she always put others before herself, a nurturing soul who cared and doctored her children or others with home remedies to heal a cold or to mend an animal back to health. Bonnie was full of laughter and mischief, as we often wondered what she was up to! Whether gathering under the willow tree to crack beans or baking pies in the kitchen, her heart was filled with singing and her eyes were filled with joy. You could see her at the kitchen table with a baby on her lap. So many hugs and kisses to us will always last. We love you a bushel and a peck.

Bonnie was married to her childhood sweetheart, Ben J. Wolford, on Oct. 10, 1944. They were married for over 64 years before his passing on March 17, 2009. They were blessed with six beautiful children, four daughters, Diana Ashcraft, Connie Dunfee and her husband Bill, all of Frazeysburg, Reda Miller and her significant other, Robert Green of Coshocton, and Loretta Morris and her husband Doug of West Lafayette; and two sons, Garry Wolford and his wife Kathy and Keith Wolford and his wife, Jackie all of Frazeysburg; 15 grandchildren; 31 great-grandchildren; 10 great-great-grandchildren; eight stepgreat-grandchildren; eight stepgreat-great- grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews. All because two people fell in love!

In addition to her parents and her loving husband, Bonnie was preceded in death by two sons in-law, Jim (Orville) Ashcraft and Jim H. Miller; a grandson, Greg Wolford; two sisters, Lenora Brown and Dorothy Sensibaugh; and two brothers, Virgil Anderson and Dale Anderson.

There will be no public calling hours or funeral services. Private family funeral services will be conducted with Bonnie’s son in-law, Rev. Bill Dunfee officiating. Burial will be in Frazeysburg Cemetery.
