Bonnie Sue Raume (Frazier), 75, a Vashon resident for most of her life, passed away on February 17, 2020 after being diagnosed with cancer. Bonnie is survived by her husband Ron Raume, her children Brenda Thieme, Donnie Smith, Becky Jenkins and Robbie Smith, and her stepson Kelly Raume. She was blessed with 11 grandchildren Brittany, Andrew, Jason, David, Sarah, Joey, Kautrina, Jessica, Jake, Erik and Payton, along with 9 great-grandchildren Lillianna, Isaac, Christian, Amelia, Olivia, Aleiah, Bryson, Zoey and Mariah.
Bonnie was born on November 15, 1944 in Eugene, Oregon to Donald and Olive Frazier. She was the second of six kids in her family and is survived by her siblings Duane Frazier, Sharon Palmer, Elaine Ericksen, Jackie Lorance and Diana Wahlman. Bonnie loved swimming, gardening and spending time outdoors and with her ever-growing family. Her dahlia beds were her pride and joy, blooming in all different colors, shapes and sizes. Bonnie also took great pleasure in grooming the perfect raspberry patch and would make endless batches of jam to share with all her family and friends. She was a mother figure and “Grandma Bonnie” to most of the island. Bonnie was very active in her church and was known for her strong faith. She touched many lives along her journey and was loved by all who had the pleasure of knowing her. She will be deeply missed by all those she leaves behind.
A memorial service and celebration of Bonnie’s life will be held at Camp Burton on Vashon Island February 29, 2020 starting at 1:00 p.m. All are welcome to come join us in celebrating our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend.
