Obituary for Bonnie Paddy
Bonnie Anne grew up in Thunderchild and loved spending time with her friends and family. She enjoyed all types of music and was quite creative. She enjoyed drawing and was more focused on First Nations Art. Bonnie Anne liked to dabble with paint. One time she even tried an experiment painting the casing around the doors at her house; however, this experimental labour of love left her landlord not too happy. One of Bonnie Anne’s many interests included sports. She loved soccer and played with the Thunderchild Ladies Soccer team at FSIN. Bonnie Anne may be small, but don’t let that fool you, she was feisty and became the team’s protector. Bonnie Anne was ready to take on anyone if they got too aggressive with her teammates. Bonnie Anne loved entering fear factor competitions on Treaty Day. She held the female fear factor champion for two consecutive years. She was always ready for the challenge.
Bonnie Anne moved around but always stayed connected with family and friends either through Facebook, or with an unexpected phone call to say “hey.” But most of all, Bonnie Anne loved her children. Her children meant everything to her and were her life. She would do anything for them.
She will be sadly missed but will forever be in our hearts. She had that impact on you.
