In Memoriam: Bonnie Greenwood (Feb. 3, 1940 – Jan. 12, 2023)

February 2023 Posted in Obituary

Bonnie Greenwood – mother, grandmother, and great grandmother – peacefully passed away Jan. 12, 2023 in Pleasant Hill, Oregon.

Bonnie was born on Feb. 3, 1940 in Geneva, Nebraska to Kenneth “Bob” Bennett and Eva Crandall. She attended Sumner High School in Nebraska and later married Delayne “Dean” Greenwood in Des Moines, Iowa, on Oct. 11, 1958.

Shortly thereafter, the family made the move west to Eugene, Oregon where Dean’s  mother was born in 1888. They joined the First Baptist Church and Bonnie became extensively involved in Bible Studies and the quilting group which handcrafted quilts for those in need.

When at home she could usually be found in her sewing room often making clothes for the kids. The family moved from Eugene to Pleasant Hill in the summer of 1971 in search of the country life. She was most proud of being a mother to her six children and gave untiring support.  She strove to attend every game, match, concert, play or event.  

Additionally, she worked as a tax preparer and managed the books for the family businesses:  Greenwood Construction and Idea Builders. She was, unequivocally, a master of the spreadsheet. 

Bonnie was preceded in death by her daughter, Suzanne Marie, and survived by children, David, of Mount Angel, Dennis, Pamela, Diane, and Valerie; grandchildren Natalie, Courtney, Corey, and Kayla; and great grandchildren, Zaydn and Zarrah.

In lieu of flowers, please send remembrances to Bags of Love, Eugene, Oregon. Arrangements by the Musgrove Family.
