Bonnie Joy Gilroy went home with the Lord on September 6, 2021 at age 72. She was born to Robert and Joyce Spencer, on June 26, 1949 in Pittston, Pennsylvania. She married her high school sweetheart, Charles F. (Butch) Gilroy and they had 6 children during their 37 years of marriage. Bonnie was a graduate of Dallas Pa High School where she earned a very prestigious award from Hallmark. She retired as a Specialty Pharmacy Technician.
Bonnie was a woman with many hobbies such as enjoying nature, gardening, music, DIY and art but ultimately, she was best known for being a selfless and Godly woman who loved her family fiercely.
She was more than just a mother to her children; she was their best friend. She taught her children so many life lessons, with the most important being to take time to count your blessings and enjoy the wonderful things God gave us. From high school to retirement Bonnie would often take time to be in nature; from taking the kids to the park, going kayaking on the lake to going on grand adventures with her best friend Diane. Wherever she went she would always bring a piece of the place back home whether that be a rock to add to her collection, a seashell, a souvenir for a family member or just pictures to share her experience. Bonnie was an amazing and kind woman who never met a stranger. She will always be fondly remembered by all who knew her.
Bonnie is survived by her children Kellyann (Anthony), Charles Jr. (Aziza), Michaela (Michell), Michael, Matthew and Catherine (Edgar); her brothers Randy (Eileen), Kevin (Cindy), sisters Lori (Denny), Michelle and Karen; Her grandchildren, great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
