Billington and her two sons, Mark Lee and Christopher John, sister, Rita Brown and brother, Jerome Wicks. Bonnie is survived by her family to whom she loved and dedicated her life to: Son and daughter-in-law, Bradley and Sue Billington of MN; daughter and son-in-law, Renee and Earle Woolley of MN; son and daughter-in-law, Stephen and Joanne Billington of MN; daughter and son-in-law, Sandra and David Ferguson of Knoxville; daughter-in-law, Barb Billington Nasby. Grandchildren: Leisa Hase, Lisa Gandrud, Lauren Elizabeth Ferguson, Nicholas Smalley, Shane, Brandon and Tony Billington. Great Grandchildren: Isabella and Isaiah Gandrud, Landon, Addison and Baby Peyton Smalley. Bonnie also leaves behind her younger brother and sister-in-law, Douglas and Emelyn Barker of AZ. Bonnie raised her children in her faith in God. She brought lots of laughs and smiles with her quick wit and wonderful sense of humor. Bonnie moved to Knoxville in 1973 where she finished raising her children. She worked retail for many years until retiring from Target Corp. Bonnie and her husband enjoyed many years of travel, visiting family and seeing the country. She enjoyed the water most of all, growing up in Perham, MN and living on Little Pine Lake until moving to TN. After losing her second child, Christopher, Bonnie suffered a stroke. She will be remembered for her loving, giving spirit and helping others. She will be sorely missed by her family, friends and neighbors. Bonnie was a loving and dedicated mother who raised six children she was proud of. Saying goodbye to her is not easy but we will take comfort knowing she is with her loved ones whom she missed so much after their passing. The family will receive friends from 10:30-11:30am, Friday, January 27, 2012 at Sherwood Chapel in Alcoa. The funeral service will begin at 11:30am. Interment will follow in Sherwood Memorial Gardens. Condolences may be offered at www.sherwoodchapel.net
