Bonita LeAnn Adolph was born Feb. 12, 1949, in Eden Valley, Minnesota, to Ferdinand and Ethel (Cutis) Adolph. In 1959, the family moved to Holdingford. After graduating from high school, Bonnie began working in Minneapolis for two years. She married John Woitalla June 14, 1969, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Holdingford. Together, the couple farmed, and later Bonnie worked at The Landing in St. Anna for five years and at Mills Fleet in Waite Park for two years.
?Bonnie was an active member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in St. Anna. She was on the parish council for six years, funeral lunch coordinator for 39 ½ years, president and vice president of the Christian Mothers and was on the bazaar committee for one year. She enjoyed listening to KASM along with dancing to old time music. She cooked and baked for all those that helped on the farm. In her downtime, she enjoyed playing cards, doing word find puzzles and relaxing with her cats, Smokey and Sunny, but most of all, she enjoyed spending time with her family especially her grandchildren, Mikayla, Grace and Abby.
Survivors include her husband, John Woitalla of St. Anna; children Kurt (Wendy) Woitalla, Kristi Woitalla and Keith (Patty) Woitalla all of St. Anna; grandchildren Mikayla, Grace and Abby Woitalla; sister-in-law Louise Adolph of Holdingford; and mother-in-law Mary Woitalla of Albany.
Bonnie was preceded in death by her parents, Ferdinand and Ethel Adolph; brothers Larry and Rodney Adolph; sister-in-law Cathy Adolph; brothers-in-law James Rakotz and Raymond Woitalla; and father-in-law Alois Woitalla.
