Bonnie Lou Marrs
Bonnie Lou (Weber) Marrs was born in Merriman, Neb., on November 20, 1928, to Fredrick W. and Vera E. (Stultz) Weber. She passed from this life to her eternal home on March 1, 2023, at Chadron Community Hospital in Chadron.
She married the love of her life, Oscar Dale Marrs on August 30, 1946, in Valentine. They celebrated 51 years of marriage before Dale passed away on December 22, 1997. To this union four children were born, Terry, Bill, Don, and Dee.
Bonnie enjoyed camping, gardening, and traveling to visit family, which she and Dale always did together. She did not know a stranger. Her greatest joy was her babies, no matter how old they are.
She is survived by her children, Terry (Sherrie) Marrs, Pikeville, Ky., Bill (Kathy) Marrs, Crystal Lake, Ill., Don (Sandy) Marrs, Rapid City, S.D., and Dee (Arty) Vinton, Gordon.
She is also survived by 14 grandchildren, 26 great grandchildren, 10 great-great grandchildren, cousin Eldon Lessert and extended family and friends.
She was the “other Mother” to Judy, Diana, Bev, John, Tom, and Dick, who also survive her.
She is preceded in death by her husband Dale, great grandson Tayler Fuchs, her parents, grandparents, special cousins Sis, Teenie, Bobby Ann and Jack and well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
Memorial services will be held at a later date at St. Elizabeth’s Catholic Cemetery in Merriman, NE. A memorial has been established for the Gordon Volunteer Rescue Unit and donations may be sent in care of Chamberlain-Pier Funeral Home, PO Box 366, Gordon, NE 69343.
Bonnie’s family would like to extend a very special Thank You to all the staff at Pioneer Manor Nursing Home in Hay Springs, NE, where Bonnie lived the last year of her life. We cannot express our gratitude to all of you enough for the love you showed to our Mom.
