October 2, 1966 - February 28, 2023
Bonnie Niese, 56, of Hamler, Ohio passed away Tuesday afternoon, February 28, 2023 at the Bridge Hospice Care Center, Bowling Green, Ohio.
She was born October 2, 1966 in Lima, Ohio to Donald and Rosalie (Warnecke) Lammers. Her father survives and she was preceded in death by her mother and stepfather, Rosalie and Nicholas Langhals and stepmother, Anna Lammers. She was also preceded in death by a brother, David Lammers.
Bonnie was a 1985 graduate of Miller City High School. After graduation she began working at the Campbell Soup Company, Napoleon, Ohio and spent over 37 years as a loyal employee. There she met her future husband, Jerry Niese. After a wonderful courtship, they were married on October 20, 1990 at St. Nicholas Catholic Church, Miller City.
This marriage was blessed with children, Katie (Brad) Yarnell; Samantha (Joe) Imbrock and Andrew Niese. Bonnie strived to be the best mother she could be and her children all feel she over achieved. They remember her always being there for them, her sacrifices and her unconditional love and guidance. She strengthened this gift as a grandmother to Reese Yarnell, Riggs Yarnell, Etta Imbrock and Lena Imbrock. There was nothing better than adoring her legacy of grandchildren.
She is also survived by her siblings, Michael (Diane) Lammers; Beth (Dan) Huddle; Nicholas (Gayle) Lammers; twin sister, Connie (Todd) Fiore; in-laws, William F. and Helen Niese; brothers and sisters-in-law, Steve (Diane) Niese; Julie (Brad) Alt; and David (Lisa) Niese.
She was a faithful and active member of St. Paul's Catholic Church, Hamler. She taught CCD classes for years and was always volunteering to help the church. As an avid baker, her pies and cookies were always a highly requested contribution at any social function. She shared this passion with her kids and grandkids; those recipes will be family heirlooms.
She spent many summers on the Maumee River and shared that enjoyment with her husband Jerry and their family. Bonnie loved to travel with her family and was proud to say she visited 47 of the United States.
A funeral mass will be held at 10:30 AM on Saturday, March 4th at St. Paul’s Catholic Church, Hamler, Ohio with Fr. Nicholas Cunningham officiating. Burial will be held at a later date in the St. Paul’s Catholic Cemetery.
Visitation will be from 2-8 PM on Friday, March 3rd at Feehan-Rodenberger Funeral Home, Deshler and from 9:30-10:30 AM, Saturday at the church.
The family encourages memorials to Bridge Hospice Care Center, Bowling Green.
Bonnie's battle with cancer lasted four years. Her hope and determination was self-evident. Giving up was not an option for her, and she lived by the quote "You can't wait until life isn't hard anymore before you decide to be happy".
