Bonnie was born July 6, 1940 in Springfield, MN to Wilfred and Valoris (Moody) Burginger.  She was baptized and confirmed at Christ Lutheran Church, Stately Township.  Bonnie married and divorced Don Foudray.  In 2003, Bonnie met the love of her life, Jerry Schuck, leading to a remarkably happy life.  Bonnie worked as a bookkeeper for Marigold Dairy and the City of North Mankato.  She loved to travel with Jerry, they kept the airlines in business.  She was always ready for a new adventure with her amazing sense of style, humming a favorite song.  She loved dancing, singing with the Sweet Adeline’s, shopping, gardening, and country western music.  Bonnie loved her family and was a “favorite” aunt to her nieces and nephews. She loved to be a part of family gatherings and always remembered birthdays and special dates.  She had a zest for life, whether she was on a fishing boat on Lake Washington, sitting at the Captain’s table on a cruise ship, or surrounded by her family. Everyone will remember her for her easy smile and laugh.  Bonnie was truly a breath of fresh air to all who knew and loved her.
