Bonnita Mae Anderson
September 10, 1929 - February 21, 2018

Place of Birth: Sidney, Montana
Residence: Sidney, Montana
Age: 88

Bonnita “Bonnie” Mae Anderson passed away on February 21, 2018. Bonnie, the daughter of Arthur and Lola (McChesney) Zadow, was born in Sidney, MT on September 10, 1929. She graduated from Sidney Senior High School in 1947. Following high school, Bonnie attended the Presentation School of Nursing, Holy Rosary Unit, in Miles City, MT. She was married to Albert Anderson in Sidney on September 10, 1949. Bonnie and Albert were charter members of the Shepard of the Valley Lutheran Church.
Bonnie worked as a clinic nurse for various physicians including R. D. Harper, John O’Sullivan, and Margaret Laverty. She loved the variety and challenges of being a nurse in an era when clinic nurses not only provided typical nursing support and care but also performed such tasks as taking and processing x-rays, drawing blood, and administering chemo treatments. Following her many years of nursing, Bonnie served as a deputy clerk of court for the Richland County Clerk of Court’s office for several years prior to her retirement.
Mother was a big sports fan. She rarely missed a Vikings or a Lakers game and also enjoyed keeping up with the Sidney Eagles sports teams by listening to their games on the radio. Perfection is the word that comes to mind when recalling the many beautiful items she crocheted and sewed or painted in ceramics. Everything she made, including her Christmas cookies, pies, and cakes always looked and tasted great. In her later years she didn’t get out much but always appreciated good food and conversation.
We are so thankful to those who supported, and thus allowed, our mother to continue to live independently in the home that she and dad built together so many years ago. Thank you to Dennis Bergerson who transported mother to her hair appointments, ran errands, and shopped for her groceries; Cindy Irigoin, her visiting nurse who provided home health care; Emagene Quinnell, who kept her house spotless, Trenlin Propp, who plowed her driveway, Sheri Madison, her hairdresser, Debbie Propp, who kept her company and supplied her with homemade treats and flowers, Theresa Rogers who delivered her medications and often made time for a visit, Linda and Duane Anderson, who were always there for her, and Pastor David Huskamp who ministered to her at home.
Bonnie is survived by her son, Douglas Anderson of Sidney, her daughter Marilyn (Thomas) Carlin of Clancy; grandchildren, Trenlin (Jami) Propp of Sidney, and Christopher (Liz) Carlin of Livingston; great-grandchildren Lacey Propp of Williston, ND, CeCe Propp of Billings, Carson Propp of Sidney and Aiden Carlin of Torrington, WY; and special friends Darcy and Paul Eslinger of Fargo, ND and their children Ella and Jon.
Bonnie was preceded in death by: her parents Arthur and Lola; husband Albert; son, Brent; and her brother, Jerry Zadow.

Bonnie has left us to join Albert and Brent in heaven. She was loved by many. Her spirit will remain with us all forever. She was such a generous person, with herself and her time. We had some fun and some trials together. But I will always remember her as a wonderful lady whom I always admired.

To Bonnie's family, Bonnie was one of the kindest people I have ever known. From places she worked, to church, to just seeing her in a store, she always took time to stop and ask how things were going and chat a bit. May your warm memories comfort you as you share your stories. Now that she is reunited with Albert and her other loved ones, her new journey has begun. May she rest in peace. With sympathy, prayers, and thoughts, Charlotte Simonsen Guptill (Merrion and Florence Simonsen's daughter)
