September 14, 1951 — December 22, 2023

Wheaton, IL

Bonnie Kissell, 72, of Wheaton, IL, formerly of Garrettsville, OH, passed peacefully surrounded by her loving husband and family on Friday, December 22, 2023; as her family gathered around, Bonnie's last words were "I really feel loved." She was born September 14, 1951, to the late Henry and Eileen Holden.

She was a devoted mother, loving wife, adoring grandmother and great grandmother, and an avid gardener.  Bonnie was one to always keep busy in taking care of her family and others, planting, gardening, puzzling, cooking and baking from scratch.  She made those around her always feel taken care of and loved. Her family meant the world to her.

Bonnie will be deeply missed by her loving husband of 51 years, Earl; children, Douglas (Melissa) Kissell, Ryan (Shani) Kissell, Matthew (Tracy) Kissell, Gregory (Ellen) Kissell, Emily (Paul) Falvey, and Zachary (Kara) Kissell; grandchildren, Lakin, Kenadi, Tristan, Logan, Haley, Shelby, Aiden, Ella, Holden, Ava, Harrison, Hamilton, Cate, Claire, Declan, William, Radley, Jack, Emmett, Ace, Milo, and Finn; great grandchildren, Ainsley, Adam, Ryla, and Wren; siblings, Peggy, Hank, Andy, Susan, Norma, Kathy and Amy.

She is preceded in death by her parents.
