Sept. 21, 1994



 

 

Bonnie died September 21, 1994, of liver cancer at the age of 51.  She had allegedly been a “cancer survivor” having had breast cancer at the age of 39, but it came back with a vengeance and took her life only 3 weeks after diagnosis.  She was born in Minnesota and her family moved to Springfield in 1952 with Bonnie graduating from Thurston in 1961.  She graduated from Sacred Heart Hospital School of Nursing in 1964 and moved to Seattle and then to Berkeley, California, in search of adventure and good nursing jobs.   She loved being a “hippie” during the 60’s and often referred to herself as “Berkeley Bon.” She married in 1971 and divorced in 1983.  She returned to Springfield in the mid-1970’s and eventually took a nursing position with McKenzie-Willamette Hospital where she worked for 11 years in Women’s Care/Labor and Delivery which she absolutely loved, and her co-workers and patients loved her too.  She also loved to try new things and took up sail boarding, skiing, piano, harmonica, writing and dancing.  She didn’t really care if she excelled or was even good at her endeavors, she just enjoyed trying new things.  Her family was priority to her and she took good care of all who knew her.  She left behind a son, Seth, who is living in Belgium with a new son of his own, and a daughter Corie who is in her 3rd year of naturopathic school in Portland.  She would be so proud of both of them.  We miss her every day.    submitted by Cindy La Fleur-Widmer

Spouse name:  Richard (Dick) Putnam
Children/Grandchildren:  3 children (Rick, Brad, & Stephanie)
 7 grandchildren;   2 great-grandchildren
Current Activities:   I work as a part-time bookkeeper for Dick's dental business.  I spend lots of time with the grandkids -- they all live in Coburg.  I also do a lot of quilting.
Highlights of the Past 40 Years:  I worked full-time while Dick was in college.  He graduated in 1973 and I quit full-time work in 1974.  The kids were 3, 10, and 14 years old at that time so I was kept busy being a mom.  Now they're all out of college, married and with kids of their own, so I keep busy with the grandkids.  I also love to go on quilt retreats and spend time quilting.  Neither Dick nor I like to be too far from home for any length of time.  We love spending free time with the kids and they seem to like being with us.   
     Dick and I celebrated 41 years of marriage in May.  Our oldest son is a Springfield Detective.  The next son works the State Police Crime Lab.  Our daughter is an investment   counselor (retired) while being a full-time mom.
 

12-2010                        
Well now, lots has happened since the last time we wrote.  Dick retired in October 2009 and is really enjoying it.  Loves to go to the mountains with the mules (not Wanda).  He is also doing the garden and canning lots of the stuff.  Tomatoes, applesauce, tuna, and pie filling for a few of the things.  We also have grandkids and six great-grandkids since the last posting.  Our daughter moved to Medford four years ago so we spend some of our time traveling down I-5 to visit her and her family.  That’s about as much traveling we do.  We are both pretty much home bodies so don’t go far or often.  Wanda is quilting a lot more now that Dick is retired, as I had to spend some time doing his bookwork for the office.

We celebrated our 50th anniversary in May of this year and the kids gave us a really nice party and we were so happy to have such a grand turnout, with friends and school mates coming from here in town and from far away.  Still live on McKenzie Hwy. and still think this is the best place to live, we love the change of seasons and the mild weather and not too hot in the summer.  Both our sons and their family’s still live in the Eugene area which makes it nice.  Retirement has not been as big a change as I thought it might so that is nice.  Hope to see lots of schoolmates in August of 2011.

Amazing it's been 40 years since "Miller" days.  I retired 2 years ago as our community blood bank's donor recruiter.  Just in time for my new role as grandmother.  Fred and I have 2 daughters who brought two great sons-in-law and two fabulous granddaughters into our lives.  Besides time spent with loved ones, I enjoy gardening, walking/hiking, horseback riding, reading, knitting, and home improvement projects (we live in an older farm house that has needed lots of updating).  Our goal is to embrace each day.  Life is good!

50th High School Reunion -- Yikes, that's a lot of years and we're talking since graduation not birth.  Thinking back to high school times I recall Stella Young asking us to outline "Tale of Two Cities", Charlie Young instructing us on the use of a standard typewriter, Hal Whitbeck's biology classroom complete with a large smelly lizard, and nearly all of us sitting in a car next to Max Humphrey during Driver Ed.  Gals, remember on Sunday night worrying if those attractive blue gym shorts and white blouses were clean and pressed and having the rare permission to wear pants to a home football game on an extra cold night?  And we think times haven't changed.


Everyone packs in a bundle of life experiences and memories in the half century since Miller-Colt days.  The condensed version of my personal life after high school is I married Fred Willis in 1963, and our adventure began.  There are two very independent compassionate women in this world we are proud to call our daughters.  Through them we have four grandchildren who are maturing into inquisitive active caring people.  They are the highlights of my life.  

The years of moment-to-moment responsibilities of raising a family and working at the community blood bank are pleasant memories.  

We've been fortunate to travel quite a bit, beginning when we strapped a tent onto the top of our "woody" station wagon and loaded up our small girls to go experience new places.  Now Fred  & I have graduated to longer trips by plane, train, ship, and car all with softer beds at the end of the day.  I am an avid (some say rabid) Duck football fan so Fall trips are planned near or around their game schedule.  We are grateful we got to be in Glendale in January. 
 
I'm still a hobbyist at many things -- glass (traditional stained & fused), gardening, knitting, sculptural clay, etc, etc, etc.  Waiting to master something.  However, I am thankfully a cancer survivor and perhaps that is the best mastery.
 
All said and done my life is full, joy-filled and contented.  Every moment is cherished and appreciated.

It would appear that  retirement for is 3-4 years out depending upon a buyer(will probably list  the lodge FOR SALE in the next 6-12 months)or a buy-out (a gold mining  operation is in the neighborhood and looking to expand its presence here).

 Life has been very good to us in terms of family, friends, health and the  "general things of life."
