Bonney Marie Patterson (nee Hogue), 70, peacefully went to be with Christ on June 25, 2021. Beloved wife of Roger Patterson for 50 years. Loving mother of Sarah (Christopher Godinez) Patterson-Mills and Jeffrey (Amy) Patterson; cherished grandmother of Devyn, Lauren, Brooke, Landin, Chayce, and Victoria; treasured great-grandmother of Floyd; dear sister of Penny (George) Barton Gilbert; dear aunt, cousin, and friend. Bonney was born in Mt. Vernon, Illinois and a graduate of Eastern Illinois University. She had a love of travel, including the Southeast United States, lived in Hong Kong for a while, and loved travels in Europe. Bonney adored being around people and knew how to work a crowd. Her stories engaged you and there was never a shortage of laughter in them. Whether you were a stranger, or a lifelong friend, you were sure to be greeted with open arms. Bonney was an accomplished author of two books, “Hunted in the Heartland” and “The Devil Came to Town”. She also worked several years as a substitute teacher in the Francis Howell School District and as a caseworker for the Missouri Department of Employment Security. Bonney had been bravely battling cancer, but she would be the first to tell you she lived a wonderfully blessed and happy life. She would also say life would not have been the same the last few years without her furry companion, lap/nap French Bulldog, Oliver. Bonney was a natural when it came to motherhood as she selflessly devoted all of her time and energy into raising her two children, six grandchildren, and one great-grandson. When it came to being a grandmother, she fully embraced the role. The love, care, and guidance Bonney poured into her family will forever be engrained and live on in them. She was recently blessed with the birth of Floyd, he great-grandson and joyously she was able to meet him in person shortly before her passing. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
