Bonnie Lou Bilger, 65, of 561 Lincoln Chapel Road, Millmont, entered into rest on Saturday morning, Nov. 18, 2017, at her home surrounded by her family.
She was born March 12, 1952, in Lewisburg, a daughter of Melladine (Machamer) Dorman, of Mifflinburg and the late Ralph Dorman. On Nov. 25, 1973, she married Lande Bilger in Lincoln Chapel United Methodist Church, where they are both members. They were married nearly 44 years.
Bonnie was a 1970 graduate from Mifflinburg High School.
After graduation, she was employed by the state as a secretary, but found that her calling was to work with children, so she took a position at Laurelton State School. She was the office manager of the family business that she shared with her husband.
Her love for her children and grandchildren was always made evident. She loved being a grandma to her two precious grandsons. She enjoyed staying at home reading, cross-stitching, creating handmade items for her family, collecting antiques and a good cup of hot tea. She was a devoted mother and wife.
In addition to her husband, Lande, she is survived by one son and daughter-in-law, Ryan and Amanda Bilger of Douglassville; one daughter, Chelsea Bilger, of Millmont; two grandsons, Andrew Bilger, of Douglassville and Grady Zesiger, of Millmont; and one sister, Catana Zimmerman, of Millmont.
Family and friends are invited to a time of visitation from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, at The Adamo's, 16 Walnut St., Mifflinburg.
In keeping with Bonnie's wishes, her graveside service will be held privately at Lincoln Chapel.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Bonnie's memory can be sent to the Public Library of Union County, 255 Reitz Blvd., Lewisburg, PA 17837, or St. Jude's Children's Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
