1972 – 2015
It is with extreme sorrow, that we announce Mrs. Bonita ‘Bonnie, Bobo, B’ Ferguson of Red Deer, Alberta, passed away after a courageous battle with her health at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre on Sunday, June 28, 2015 at the age of 43 years. Bonnie was born and raised in Barrhead, Alberta. She and Neil eventually settled in Red Deer in 1997 and embraced their new home. At heart, a shy, sensitive soul, Bonnie evolved into a fearless, straight forward woman, who was passionate in her beliefs. She loved supporting local businesses, and really believed that one person could effect change. Always curious, Bonnie loved to travel the world, try new foods, activities and hobbies. She played a beautiful guitar and wrote incredible songs. Bonnie is survived by her best friend of twenty-three years, partner in crime, soul mate and devoted husband, Neil Barton. She will also be sadly missed by her mother, Joyce Ferguson, sisters, Cindy Ferguson and Laurie Ferguson, brother, Robert (Desiree) Ferguson, nieces, Payton, Riley, Piper and Harper Ferguson, numerous other family members and a wide circle of dear friends. Bonnie was predeceased by her father, Hugh Ferguson, grandparents, Robert and Edna Ferguson, Arnold and Edna Harms, and an uncle, William Ferguson. Honoring Bonnie’s wishes, no formal Funeral Service will be held. If desired, Memorial Donations in Bonnie’s honor may be made directly to the Salvation Army, Safe Harbour Society, or to the Red Deer Food Bank. Better yet, please donate some of your time like Bonnie did; she always worried about others. But to really remember our girl, go to a local pub, order a good, locally made craft beer and share your funny, crazy Bonnie stories. Take the trip you’ve always wanted, go get that dream, explore. Love fearlessly. Never give up. Laugh. We love you Bobo and we’ll miss you every day. Sleep well, sweet dreams. Condolences may be sent or viewed at
