Bonnie Godfrey

Bonnie Sue Godfrey (Sowers), 61, of Hallam passed away May 15, 2019 at her home. She was the wife of James Godfrey.

Born February 9, 1958 in York, she was the daughter of Erma (Henry) Winkel of Phoenix, AZ and the late Donald Winkel.

Bonnie was employed with M&T Bank. She was a 1976 graduate of York Suburban High School.

Bonnie loved gardening and most of the time could be found in the yard planting her favorite flowers. When she wasn’t gardening, you could find her at the river on the boat with Jim and her children. Although Bonnie spent the last couple of years fighting cancer, she was always still able to find her “pink pony.” She enjoyed spending time with friends and family and being Mimi to her beloved Ruby.

In addition to her husband and mother, she is survived by her son, Josh Sowers and her daughter, Jordan Sowers.

A celebration of life gathering will be held Friday, May 24, 2019 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. at the Susquehanna Yacht Club, 1730 Long Level Rd, Wrightsville, PA 17368.
