Bonnie was born in Watervliet, Michigan on June 12, 1953 to Ira and Juanita Rutledge. She was a graduate of Coloma High School. Bonnie loved people and the people loved her back. She was affectionately known as Nanny to all. She had not only a great sense of humor but also an infectious laugh. Her favorite part of the day was spent on the porch with her phone in one hand and a cup of coffee in the other while she talked with friends and family. She was a big part of her family’s lives and will be missed by all.

Bonnie is survived by her daughter Amanda Prescott of Benton Harbor; her son Joshua Cromer; three sisters, Julia Kiser of Benton Harbor, Lenda (Richard) Ward of Watervliet, and Vickie (Randy) Anderson of Orlando, Fla.; her brother Alvin (Donna) Rutledge of Watervliet; five grandchildren, Brooke (Nick) Bizer, Devon Cromer, Brittany Schroeder, Brenna Prescott and Croix Cromer; four great grandchildren, Carter, Lili, Nolan and Letti; Dan Jackson, whom she thought of as a son, and many, many friends.

She was preceded in death by Billy Cromer, the father of her children; and her parents.
