Rafferty, Bonnie Joy (Steinke)

Bonnie Joy Rafferty, Wheaton, IL. Born into this world October 29, 1945, and born into Eternal Life July 31, 2017. Beloved wife for 50 years of Tom Rafferty. Loving mother to Shannon Willfahrt (Jody) and Megon Preissig (David). Very special Nanny to her cherished grandson Timothy Preissig. Dear sister of Carole Knutson (Gene). Sister-in-law to Mary Ann Hugerich (George) and Eileen Barozzi (Richard). Bonnie was blessed to have many special nieces and nephews who loved her every bit as much as she loved them. Bonnie was a first-grade teacher in Wheaton until her children were born; then she became a full-time volunteer at her children's schools, her church, and everywhere else her talents and interests were needed. Bonnie loved to travel, garden, and cook. She kept a couple of her "spaghetti pies" on hand to deliver to a family who needed a meal. She will be greatly missed by her family, church family, friends, neighbors, and the bridge ladies, some of whom she has been playing bridge with weekly for almost 40 years.
