Her Life

Bonnie's Obituary

BONNIE JEAN WICKIZER, age 79 passed away on Monday, August 10th, to enter her place of eternal peace and limitless Love. Bonnie was born in Davenport Iowa. She graduated from Walla Walla High School and married her high school sweetheart, Charles Wickizer in 1959.  They were married and devoted to each other for over 60 years.

Besides helping to raise her two sons, Bonnie and Charles opened a retail clothing business (Impressions) in Eugene, OR. Bonnie also worked at Latham’s Luggage and for Hallmark Cards. 

Bonnie loved working on puzzles, reading novels, and eating ice cream. She also loved to travel to warm climates and hang with her “poolies” at the swimming pool, but her greatest pleasure was visiting her and Chuck’s good friends, Sharon and Phil Roberts, for frequent dinners and to watch Ducks football and basketball games. 

She leaves behind her husband Charles, two sons; Richard Wickizer (wife-Brenda) and Jonathan Wickizer (wife-Tricia), two sisters; Vicki Phares-Marks and Candy Phares-Jones, seven grandchildren and sixteen great-grandchildren.
