Bonita “Bonnie” Sue Matchulat (Marzolf) was born in Buffalo, New York, on Jan. 27, 1942, and was called home by the Lord on Jan. 30, 2019.
She was preceded in death by her parents, John G. and Margaret Matchulat.
She was blessed with an abundance of intelligence, a quick wit, a captivating personality, plus unlimited talent and sensitivities. Above all, she was a loving and devoted mother who helped infuse her daughter and twin sons with Christian values.
She was a voracious reader, an accomplished pianist and painter, who also enjoyed needlepoint. She had a love for animals and over her lifetime provided a warm and loving home to her dogs.
Bonnie’s deep concern for her fellow man is evidenced, in part, by over 15 years of service with Hospice and involvement with the church. Bonnie had a highly successful career selling real estate where her enthusiastic, engaging personality and unflinching preparation provided her with intense knowledge of her client’s needs and the properties she listed and sold.
Bonnie will be sorely missed. Her survivors include brother, Jack Matchulat (Cindy) of Brentwood; daughter, Laura Walton (Michael) of Sammamish, Wash.; son, Col. Gregory Marzolf, USAF Retired (Carole) of Fort Collins, Colo.; son, Jeffrey Marzolf (Laura) of Knoxville; niece, Amanda Long (Matt) of Chattanooga; nephew and godson Justin Matchulat of Frederick, Md.; and a host of grandchildren and great-grandchildren that include: Jeffrey and John Walton; Ashley, Amir, Cathleen, Julia, and Taylor Marzolf, and Sierra and Gabriel Marzolf; and great-nephew Cody Long.
The service honoring and remembering Bonnie will be held 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2019, at Christ Our Savior Lutheran Church, located at 260 Wade Road, W Loudon, Tenn., with the Rev. Brian Truog officiating.
The family requests any memorials and/or donations be made in Bonnie’s name to Susan G. Komen for the Cure of Breast Cancer Foundation, Dept. 41831, P.O. Box 650309, Dallas, TX 75265.
The family will greet and visit friends immediately following the service in the fellowship hall.
