Bonnie Kay RoddenbergBonnie Kay Roddenberg, beloved mother and widow, passed away at age 56 while at home early in the morning on November 27, 2017. Born March 4, 1961 in Detroit, MI, she was the daughter of Richard Chiolino and Judy McKenzie.
Years after meeting her husband, Bonnie and Larry moved to the Fowlerville area to raise their children. This move allowed Bonnie an opportunity to become a para-pro in May of 1994 which she did for 25 years for Fowlerville Schools. Over this time Bonnie naturally shined her wonderful light onto many kids and guided them as if they were her own. Bonnie not only had a way with kids, she also had a love for animals which is apparent from her 15 years of work at Brady Kennels and the dogs she cared for (Small Block, Max, Peanut, Heidi and Moose).
Bonnie also enjoyed gardening, watching her sons race figure eight cars, riding on a quad with her husband and spending time with all of her family. She had a strong faith and believed God always had a plan.
Bonnie was a loving mother to Alex Roddenberg and deceased son Nicholas Roddenberg; she was a ray of sunshine to sisters Connie Chiolino-Snider, Holly Turoski and Arlene Raynolds; Also survived by mother, Judy McKenzie; grandchildren, KC Roddenberg and Grace Roddenberg; and many nieces and nephews.
Preceded in death by her father, Richard Chilino; husband, Larry Roddenberg; and son, Nicholas Roddenberg.
