Bernice “Bonnie” Doris Drietz was born on June 6, 1940 in rural Taunton, MN to Walter and Della (Glaidis) Drietz. Bonnie was diagnosed as being mentally handicapped, as well as autistic. Since there were no schools available for people like Bonnie, she did her best to learn from home. She was a gentle and humble person with a big heart, who enjoyed the simple things in life. She enjoyed doing latch hook, stitch hook, embroidery, putting together puzzles, coloring, baking and frosting cookies and playing board games.

Bonnie received her sacraments at St. John Cantius Catholic Church in Wilno, MN, where she will receive her final blessing from God. May God continue to bless Bonnie and grant her the peace and joys of Heaven.

Bonnie is survived by her sister, Beatty Dubbeldee; and several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Walter and Della Drietz; her brothers: Garfield, Robert, Jack and Jerry; and her sister, Mary Ann.
