Bonnie Killebrew

Bonnie Jean Rasmussen Killebrew, 85, passed away Wednesday, May 20. Bonnie was born in Monroe, Dec. 24, 1934, to Clinton and Elaine Rasmussen.

Bonnie was a retired Clark County schoolteacher but her number one priority was always as a devoted mother and grandmother. She was the light and center of her family, accepting and kind to all she met. The life of the party, she loved to laugh — mostly at herself, and dance with her kids and grandkids. By far her favorite thing was to have her family at her Utah farm where she has spent her summers for the last 25 years. She was always the first up and the last to bed, even cooking her birthday dinner and Christmas Eve dinner through her 85th birthday. She worked harder and loved more than everyone around her and made it look effortless. She was simply amazing and we were lucky she was ours. We’ll love and miss you everyday, Mom.

Bonnie is preceded in death by her husband of 60 years, Bob; and brother, Richard (OraNell) Rasmussen. 

She is survived by and is a loving mother to seven children, Kelly, Scott, Steve, Suzette, Tony (Martha), Sheri and Keri (Stacey); 12 grandchildren, Matt (Francesca), Chris, Kyle, Andi, Alec, Ellie, Gigi, Eric, Ava, Will, Jace and Ben; three great-grandchildren, Amelia, Oliver and Riley; siblings, Betty and Rhett; sisters-in-law, Una and Erma (Ronnie); and brothers-in-law. Paul and John (Lorna).
