BONNIE JEAN (nee Synder) BANKS

CHARLES CITY, IOWA — Bonnie Jean Banks, 77, of 3 Lions Drive, Charles City, died early Friday morning (Jan. 23, 2004) surrounded by family at her home.

A funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, 106 Chapel Lane, Charles City, with the Rev. Carl Ries presiding. Interment will be at Calvary Cemetery in Charles City.

The family will greet friends from 5 to 7 p.m. today at Fullerton-Hage Funeral Home, 401 Blunt St., Charles City. The rosary will be recited at 5 p.m. and the vigil wake service held at 6:30 p.m. The visitation will continue Tuesday one hour prior to services at the church.

Bonnie Jean Banks was born in Mankato, Minn., July 15, 1926, the daughter of Leonard and Ellen (Eustice) Synder. She attended school in Charles City, graduating from Immaculate Conception Catholic School, in the Class of 1946.

Bonnie married her husband, Wes Banks, at Immaculate Conception Church in 1946. The couple was blessed with five children. She took great pleasure in providing for her family. Bonnie was employed with White Farm of Charles City in the traffic department for 24 years. From 1970 to 1973 she owned and operated B.J.’s Shoppe, a Hallmark-affiliated gift shop in Charles City.

Some of Bonnie’s interests, passions and leisure activities included dancing, socializing with friends at the Elks Club, enjoying the peace and tranquility of living on the river, watching the variety of wildlife prance through the backyard, whether it be the deer curiously nibbling for food, the birds singing in the trees or the terminally lonely white swan that basked in the sun and floated aimlessly on the water.

She lovingly cherished time spent with her entire family and looked forward to their traditional “Family Biscuit Club” Sunday mornings after church.

Bonnie will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by family and friends who shared in her life.

Those grateful for having had the privilege of sharing in her life are her five children, Vickie Shollenbarger and her husband, Dennis, of Charles City; Karen Holzer and her husband, Ray, of Charles City; Robin Tegtmeier and her husband, Brian, of Louisville, Ky; Denny Banks and his wife, Barbara, of Charles City, and Faron Banks and his wife, Jill, of Charles City; 12 grandchildren, Tina Nelson and her husband, Bret; Tony Shollenbarger; Jeff Holzer and his wife, Angie; Jodi Page and her husband, Jason; Jill Jespersen and her husband, Scott; Kelli and Nick Tegtmeier; Nicole Davis and her husband, Mike; Marty Banks and his wife, April; Kiley Banks, Cody Banks and Caleb Banks.

She will also be missed by fourteen great grandchildren; a brother, Joe Synder and his wife, Marion of Charles City; two sisters, Irene Field and her husband, Paul, of Charles City, and Ann Aldridge and her husband, Woody, of San Marcos, Calif.

Bonnie was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Wes; a sister, Pat Apel; infant brother, Paul Synder and infant granddaughter, Tami Shollenbarger.
