Devoted mother and active
Bonny Will-Watson, 70, peacefully passed away after a hard fought battle with cancer on Sunday February 23rd, 2014 in Lexington Kentucky with her family by her side. Born August 5th, 1943 in Grande Prairie, Alberta, she was the eldest daughter of the late Phil and Agnes Lessoway. Bonny married her first husband David Will in 1963. They moved to Red Deer and worked together growing their hotel businesses and raising their two children. Bonny later married Bill Watson of Calgary, Alberta. They moved to Kentucky in 2006 where they spent their final years together until Bill’s passing in 2010. Bonny was a lover of animals – large and small, an active member of her community, and a devoted mother. Her zest for life and her positive spirit will be missed by all who knew her. She had the unique ability to help people believe that they could accomplish anything. She was immensely proud of her children and grandchildren. They were the pride of her life. Bonny is survived by her two children, Darcy (Janet) Will and their children Ashley, Lauren, and Andrew of Red Deer, Alberta and Samantha Will and her husband Chris Baccari of Lexington, Kentucky, and her first husband David Will (Denise Town). She is also survived by her siblings, Laverne, Ron, Dale and Mary-Rose Lessoway, and sister Joan Topilko. She was preceded in death by her second husband Bill Watson and her sister Marian Lessoway. The family will be privately celebrating Bonny’s life on the farm in Lexington, Kentucky in the spring when the flowers are blooming, the sun is shining and the new foals are running. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to a local animal shelter in her name, as this would make Bonny smile.
