It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Mrs. Bonnie Platt, formerly of Fernie, British Columbia and more recently of the Crowsnest Pass, Alberta. Our beloved mother was called to be with the Lord on April 1, 2018 while receiving care at the Crowsnest Pass Health Centre. She was blessed with 78 years of a wonderful life.
Bonnie was born on October 2, 1939 in Grandview, Manitoba to proud parents, John William and Margaret Laszlo. She was instilled with an appreciation for life’s simple pleasures and the rewards from hard work, the comforts of a loving home and devotion to friends and family. Bonnie blossomed into a graceful and lovely young lady who won the heart of a dashing young man, Robert Platt. Her courtship was full of romance and happiness and on July 11, 1959, they pledged their love in holy matrimony. The young couple was further blessed with three lovely daughters, and later with several grandchildren and great grandchildren who they cherished greatly.
Bonnie took an active role in raising her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed spending times outdoors as a family camping and boating. As the years passed, she slowed down a little and took up bingo, knitting and crocheting but her greatest joy was any time spent with her beloved Bob and family – they were the purpose in her life and their love the greatest reward. She was nurturing and kind, resilient and inspirational and her fond memory will remain forever in our hearts.
Left to mourn her passing and celebrate her life include her cherished children, Sandra (Charlie) McCormick of West Kelowna, BC, Cheryl (Bill) Woolridge of Kelowna, BC and Paula (Dennis) Brazzoni of Bellevue, AB; her beloved grandchildren, Scott (Amanda) McCormick of Fernie, BC, Stan (Ashley) Yuszko of Elkford, BC, Stephanie (Pat) Keller of Sparwood, BC, Robert (Serena) Woolridge and Thomas Woolridge of Kelowna, BC, Jesse Brazzoni of Coleman, AB, and Branden (Brittany) of Calgary, AB; her precious great grandchildren, Hunter, Ryder and Sawyer McCormick, Jackson Keller and his baby-sister-to-be and Fynnlee Woolridge; as well as her extended family and many friends. She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Robert Platt and parents, John & Margaret Lazslo.
