December 21, 1936 – August 25, 2020

Longtime Craig resident, Bonnie J. Mann, passed away on Tuesday, Aug. 25, 2020, at Sandrock Ridge Care Center. She was 83. A graveside service was held at 10:00 a.m., Friday at the Craig Cemetery.

Bonnie J. Mann was born one of five children to Arthur Hunter and Mary (Bell) Dean on December 21, 1936 in Lane, Oklahoma. She spent her childhood in Oklahoma and Arizona.

While living in Eloy, Arizona, she met the love of her life and married Richard Mann on July 2, 1952. To this union they welcomed four children into their family.

Bonnie and Richard moved to Colorado in 1955. While living in Craig, Bonnie found part time employment at Moffat County Road and Bridge as a custodial technician, but her full-time job was a homemaker. She retired with 30 years of service from the county in 1998. Bonnie accepted the Lord in 1968, which deepened her faith in God and helped her to become the example of faith and love. In her spare time, Bonnie enjoyed fishing, hunting and helping others. When life gave Bonnie lemons, she made lemonade. She will be remembered as a devoted wife, loving mother and grandmother, and an example of love.

Bonnie is survived by two daughters, Shelley (Loren) Rozema of Saratoga Springs, UT and Carrie (Mark) Smith of Craig; two sons, Johnny W. (Lori) Mann and Doyle Dean (Tisha) Mann both of Craig; and one sister, Martha Weaver of Tucson, AZ. Bonnie is further survived by six grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

Bonnie was preceded in death by her husband Richard, her parents, one sister and two brothers.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions be made in Bonnie’s memory to the Sandrock Ridge Activities Fund in care of Grant Mortuary.
