     Bonnie was born in Viola WI on January 29, 1925 to James Bernard and Alice (Pugh) Heal. She was a graduate of Viola High School. She worked at various jobs including working at the Badger Ordinance Works during World War II.  Bonnie married Carlyle Sherry on December 29, 1944. Two days later, Carlyle was sent to Europe to fight in WW II and they did not start their married life together until the end of the war two years later. Bonnie spent most of her married life working with Carlyle on their dairy farm where she enjoyed working hard and being a farm wife. In later years, they enjoyed traveling and went on many bus trips exploring the United States. Bonnie was a member of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Viroqua. Nothing was more important to Bonnie than her family. Her main concern the last week of her life was to make sure they were “all right”.

     Bonnie is survived by; her daughter and son in law Lori and Mark D. Jacobson, her granddaughter Kristin (Eric) Potter and grandson Eric (fiancee Bethany Wemette) Jacobson, and her one great-granddaughter Lucy Potter. She is further survived by; her brother in law and sister in law Philip and Charlotte Sherry; her sister in law Joanne Sherry; and numerous nieces and nephews including Lana (Bill) Wheeler and Dana (Sherry) Heal to whom she was like a second mother.

     Bonnie was preceded in death by; her husband Carlyle, her grandsons Kyle and Greg, her brothers Denver, Ed, and Lester Heal, and her sisters Gladys Drake and Helen Johnson. 

     The family would like to express their deepest gratitude to the doctor’s, nurses, and staff at Vernon Memorial Healthcare for all of their excellent care and concern for Bonnie during her illness.  Thank you, also, to the staff of Creamery Creek for making Bonnie’s last few months of life comfortable and happy.
