Bonnie Faye Archey passed away at Sutter Coast Hospital on Nov. 28, 2008, after a brief battle with cancer. She was born Sept. 2, 1938, in Arizona.
Bonnie spent her life in the Northwest, settling permanently in Crescent City in 1984. She enjoyed the redwoods and spent her time gardening and canning what she grew. She was generous with her homemade jams and hand-crocheted afghans. If Bonnie wasn't home, she could be found playing bingo or at the beach.
Bonnie was preceded in death by her husband Leroy Archey and daughter Teresa Archey, parents and her sister.
She is survived her three sons Robert, Danny and David Archey; five grandchildren and several great grandchildren; two brothers Woodrow Weir and Virgil Gill; and her long-time companion Merrill ("Doc") McGuire.
The family will hold a memorial service in the spring. Arrangements are under the direction of Wier's Mortuary Chapel of Crescent City.
