Bonita I. Evans

January 10, 1943 — March 31, 2024


Bonita I. Evans, 81, found peace from her long-time battle with COPD March 31st, 2024. Bonnie was born in Meadville, PA on January 10th, 1943, the daughter of the late John and Isabelle Hogue Bower, but was a longtime Warren, OH resident. Bonnie married her husband Randall S. Evans and together they raised a family and started their life in Warren. They were both very community minded and Bonnie was proud to be a "Jaycette"; the woman’s' group(team) of the  Warren Jaycees during the 70's with her husband Randall where they both made lifelong friends.  Bonnie enjoyed (being with) people and belonged to a number of groups and clubs during her early years. She had many varied interests such as bowling, going to bingo and loved watching cooking shows and trying out new recipes that she could share with her friends. She loved to travel and managed to see a lot of the country during her lifetime. Her one regret was that her declining health prevented her from visiting her granddaughter in California.
     Bonnie lost her husband Randall in 2011 and outlived most of her family but is survived by her 3 daughters, Karen Blair, Sharon Rumbarger, and Cathie Evans, all of Warren, Ohio; grandchildren Ryan Blair of Pittsburgh, PA, Kara Evans(Adam Gumont) of  CA, William Rumbarger of Warren and Sylvia(Andrew)Novak of N. Carolina; and great- grandchildren Elijah Evans, Dylan Gumont, and Josslyn Gumont of Sutter Creek, CA., Serenity, Joanie and John Novak of N. Carolina.
There will be no calling hours or Services. Bonnie was very generous in sprit and soul. She would prefer that a kindness be shown to someone or a donation to the Warren Family Mission if it were to be of a charitable nature or any other outreach program in lieu of flowers to the family who will get together to remember Bonnie at a later date. Bonnie would just be happy if she had brightened your day.
The family wishes to thank the Doctor's and Nurses at Trumbull Memorial who allowed Bonnie to spend her last days in peace and dignity.  A special mention to Shepherd of the Valley in Howland where she made friendships with the staff and residents during her many visits for physical therapy...she was determined not to let anything interfere with the life she had made for herself.
Burial will be at the Howland cemetery where she will rest in peace next to her husband.

Arrangements were entrusted with Lane Family Funeral Homes Roberts – Clark Chapel in Warren.
