Yvonne J. “Bonnie” LaValliere, 83, died peacefully with her family at her side on February 10, 2020, following a brief illness.  She was born on December 22, 1936, in Menominee, MI to the late Gabe and Joyce (Belanger) Delfosse. 

In 1955 Bonnie married Wayne LaValliere in Menominee, MI.  He preceded her in death on June 15, 2004.  Bonnie was a dedicated and loving wife, mother, and homemaker.  She had a passion for the natural world, natural healing, art, and watercolor.  Bonnie enjoyed spending her time playing cribbage, knitting, and being with her family. She will be remembered as “the rock” in many people’s lives.  Bonnie was someone anyone could go to for help, or advice, and she was always caring and supportive.

LaValliere (special friend Julli Nelson), Sarah (Tony) LaValliere-Radej, and Jenny LaValliere; her grandchildren, Rory (Kelly), Reece, Tanner (Kailey), Samantha, Alexis, and W.
