Bonnie Mckay Friel of Littleton, Colorado

Born 1/10/41 in Carrolton, Missourri to parents Alfred and Betty Brooks

She Passed away 12/29/21

Bonnie is survived by four children Liz Alley, Tim Mckay, Stephannie Dean Marino. and Sean Lowe, by five grandchildren Crystal Alley Ackerman, Ashley Alley Fiske, Whitney McKay, Jesse McKay and Sarah Dean, and by five great grandhchildren, BellaRay, Doc, Beau, Camden and Teagan.  Bonnie devoted her life to her family, and was never shy about telling others that being a mother and a Nana was the greatest gift in her life.  Teaching art was her true passion and every student that was blessed enough to be in her classes learned to see the beauty around them and to stick with every project they started in order to improve. She loved having coffee with company and beating the pants off of friends and family in Words with Friends whenever possible.  She was an amazing, wife, mom, Nana, friend and cook. She taught so many how to see the shadows in their art, to find joy in food, and what it means to serve others.  Bonnie’s home, heart and kitchen were always open to friends and strangers and she will be forever missed by us all.  Our loss is Heaven’s gain.
