Saying goodbye to a unique resident

I never talked to her, but I always appreciated her obvious determination.

I would like to recognize a very unique soul who just died and was quite a visual connection to our Community of Bonney Lake.

I never knew her name, but I would often think of her as “Our Lady of Bonney Lake.” She was the lady who crossed state Route 410 daily in her black longcoat. I could see this unique lady and how determined she was to cross there daily. I never asked if she needed help; she was determined and always on a mission… I never dared as she was very self sufficient. We learned she died in a house fire. I thought she would probably die crossing SR 410. God decided otherwise how He was going to embrace her. God bless Our Lady of Bonney Lake, and may she rest in peace.
