DEFOREST-Bonnie J. (Ferguson) Schott, age 84, of DeForest, passed away on Thursday, July 12, 2012, surrounded by her family. She was born on August 6, 1927, the daughter of Harvey and Thelma Kehoe.

Bonnie married Gerald Schott on Oct. 7, 1957. He preceded her in death on Oct. 28, 2010. Bonnie was a very special person who made friends everywhere she went. She enjoyed meeting people and learning about their life story. Her door was always open; and there was always something special baked to share.

Bonnie is survived by her children, Daniel, Robert, Pamela (Bill) Schuster, Cheryl (Larry) Heiman, Michael (Angela), and Pat (Dawn); grandchildren, Kari (Jason) Hack, Misty (Chad) Mielke, Casey (Joell) Heiman, Adam and Audra Schott, and Cody Schott; and great-grandchild, Brooke Hack.

Private family services will be held.

The family wishes to extend a special thank-you to Dr. Laura Zakowski and Dr. Giorgio Gimelli and their nurses. Your love and excellent care helped Bonnie fight to the bitter end. Thank-you, also, to Agrace HospiceCare whose friendship, love, and dedication over the last year made her journey through cancer so much easier.
