Bonnie Gean Troll (nee Beasley)
Bonnie Gean Troll (nee Beasley) died peacefully at home on June 2, 2021. She was 85 years old. Waiting for her in heaven was her beloved husband, Red. They are finally reunited after 65 years of marriage.
Bonnie was born on Jan. 16, 1936, in Dyersburg, Tenn. She was the second of her four siblings, born to Belva and Doyle Beasley. She was a graduate of Cardwell High School and worked for many years as a nurse. She married her soulmate, Eugene (Red) Troll on Sept. 15, 1956. They were the very proud parents of Karolyn McEntee (Jerry) and Gerald Troll.
Bonnie and Red raised their children in San Diego, Calif. She was a hard working nurse, dedicated mother, and cherished friend to countless people. After their children were grown, they retired to Nevada, Mo., where they lived on their farm, gardening, growing, and loving each other and their families.
Bonnie was well known in her community as an avid and gifted quilter. She was a gardener with the greenest of thumbs, and could make anything grow. In addition to quilting and canning, she was an extremely dedicated and active member of the Church of Christ.
Bonnie was so many things to so many people. She was a mother, a grandmother, an aunt, a friend, and a confidante. She dedicated her life to helping people in any way she could. She loved deeply, and was so very loved by everyone lucky enough to meet her. She had a way of making friends everywhere she went, a trait proudly carried on by her family and network of friends.
She is remembered by her sisters, Patsy and Renee, and her brother Bill. She joined her mother, father, and husband in heaven.
Her legacy of faith, love, and service will live on in her children, grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. Her family extends far beyond that, and we all are honored to have had her in our lives.
Deepest appreciations to Compassus for their care and attention during this challenging time.
