Bonnie J. Boehm
Bonnie J. Boehm, (nee McPhillips), of West Bend entered into eternal peace on Friday, June 23, 2006 surrounded by her loving family at All Saints Healthcare, at the age of 59.
Bonnie was born on September 5, 1946 to Roy and Delores (nee Meyer) McPhillips in Racine, where she was also raised. She attended and graduated from Park High School with the class of 1964. She met Tom Boehm in high school, and in January of 1965 they married. They resided in Racine, where they began their own loving family, and later moved to Jackson. Bonnie was a dedicated employee of The Great Party Store for over 20 years. She enjoyed reading, listening to a wide variety of music, and collecting lighthouses and boats. Above all other pastimes, Bonnie loved the time she was able to spend with her children and granddaughter; they were the light of her life.
Bonnie has found an everlasting spot in the hearts of her children, Melissa (Jamie) Dahm of West Bend and the late Rebecca Boehm; her granddaughter, Kiersten Dahm; her mother, Delores L. McPhillips of Racine; her siblings, Joy (Clay) Baker of Racine, John "Jack" (Pam) McPhillips of Racine, Wendy (Mike) Craemer of New Holstein, and Julie McPhillips (Kurt Moon) of Tipton, Iowa; her special friend, Hal Nichol of Milwaukee; and her feline companion, "Pook." She will also be deeply missed by nieces, nephews, other special relatives, and many dear friends. Bonnie was preceded in death by her father, Roy; and her daughter, Rebecca.
