Carla Diane Bonnette, age 72, of Madison passed away on Wednesday, July 9, 2014, at Agrace HospiceCare. She was born on Sept. 14, 1941, in Whitewater, the daughter of Stanley and Ruth (Harris) Bonnette. She graduated from Monona Grove High School in 1959; the first class to attend all four years at the new high school. Carla had a love for organization and numbers, which led to her career as a bookkeeper for the State of Wisconsin working for the teacher’s retirement fund until her retirement in 1996. After her retirement she became a “snow bird,” spending her winters in Las Vegas. Carla loved gardening, blackjack and her dogs.

She is survived by her sister, Susan Bonnette (Richard Schlecht) of San Jose, Calif.; her brother, Lane (Debra) Bonnette of Madison; her nephews, Matthew Johnson of Berkeley, Calif., Cory Johnson of Huntington Beach, Calif., and Clifton Bonnette of Portland Ore.; and her niece, Alayna Bonnette of Las Vegas, Nev.

She was preceded in death by her parents. Memorials may be made to Agrace HospiceCare.

The family would like to thank the staffs of Harmony Living Center, Heritage Senior Living and Agrace HospiceCare for their kind care of Carla. Online condolences may be made at www.gundersonfh.com.
