Once diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2005, Bonnie Foss never gave up or complained. The only words she spoke about the disease was “that's the hand we were dealt Julee, let's just keep going.” Bonnie maintained a brave, quiet and at times snarky disposition throughout the years of the disease. Her eyes would sparkle and seem…

Dear Julee, my mom Roberta Morell called to tell about the passing of your mom. Childhood memories flooded my head. In about 5th grade, your parents had a foster child named Candy. We were great friends. I played at your house with u and Candy a lot. Your mom always made my visits special with home baked cookies. She once invited me over to watch the movie Heidi on your colored TV. The three of us girls watched the movie while your mom served us popcorn and koolaide. I have such fond memories of both your mom and dad. Whenever we sing How Great Though Art in church, I can't help but think of your dad. Our family loved them both so much!

We were so very sorry to hear of Bonnie's death. She was a very special person and we have lots of good memories of her. Our days in the bell choir under her direction are among our fondest.

Mrs. Foss was my second grade teacher in 1978 at Mead School. I remember my first day of school, I was brand new to Wisconsin Rapids (having moved from Kellner to the "big city"). Mrs. Foss pulled me aside on my first day and could tell I was scared. She looked me in the eye and said everything was going to be alright. She asked me, "what is your favorite part about school?" and I replied, "reading and drawing". She asked me to draw her something. So, I did and drew her a picture of Fred Flintstone. She was so complimentary and encouraging of my drawing. She asked me to draw a giant "Fred" for the classroom door as part of a door-decorating contest the school was having. I was pretty taken back for a second grader! She made me feel like a pretty special kid! That whole year, I remember how much I learned from her about the right way to learn. She planted seeds that stuck with me for life. Thanks to those seeds, I now provide leadership in an industry focused on helping people with Alzheimer's Disease and seniors needing care. I love what I do and Mrs. Foss is one of the reasons I am grateful for how I turned out. My heartfelt sympathy to the friends and family of Mrs. Foss. She was truly and amazing person! God Bless You!
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Julee, Bob, David and Matthew... I pray that in time you are able to reflect back on the great memories of your mom/grandma more than the heavy pain of her passing. Time going by will help ease some of the saddness and void you feel now. I am so very sorry for your loss. I pray that you find some piece of mind knowing your mom/grandma is in a loving, happy place. God bless you all... xoxo Ann Ports

May your hearts be filled with the wonderful memories of all the joyous times you spent together. There will be a time when the sting of death will be no more and we will soon see our love ones again that we lost in death John 5: 28-29 "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life,"

I am so sorry to hear of Bonnie's passing. She was a great mentor to me when I taught at Mead School. She encouraged me in my teaching and in becoming involved with the Teacher's Union. I have missed her over the years, but the things she taught me will remain with me.
