Bonnie R. Tomasek, 78, of Lexington, Nebraska, died Monday, October 14th, 2013, at Lexington Regional Health Center.
Bonnie was born December 5th, 1934, in Lexington to William George and Minnie Orlena (Speak) Fellers, Sr. She attended elementary school at rural District #7 and then high school at Lexington High School. Bonnie was united in marriage to Don Tomasek on January 9th, 1951, in Lexington at the United Methodist Church. The marriage was blessed with three children; Steve, Susan and David.
Although Bonnie’s family was her greatest joy, she did work outside of the home selling Amway, cleaning District #22 rural school and was custodian at the United Methodist Church for 18 years.
Bonnie was one of the first Hospice volunteers in Lexington back in the early 1980’s. She loved playing bridge, shopping, having coffee with friends and keeping a beautiful home. Bonnie had a heart of gold and a wonderful sense of humor which sustained her and her family up until the end of her life. She will never be forgotten.
