Bonnie Elmhorst

Bonnie Rose Elmhorst, 70, of Neillsville died Friday, Jan. 6, 2006, in the palliative care unit at Saint Joseph's Hospital, Marshfield.

Services will be at 11 a.m. Tuesday at the Calvary Lutheran Church, Neillsville, Wis.

Visitation will be from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Tuesday at the church.

She was born Dec. 9, 1935, to Olaf and Della (Woodford) Botnen. Bonnie married Wendell "Weny" Elmhorst in Neillsville on Dec. 11, 1954. She worked for the Neillsville ASCS for a time after graduating from high school and then farmed with "Weny" until they sold the cows in 1997. She had a very unique sense of humor and jokingly referred to herself as the "sex symbol of Clark County."

She is survived by her husband; their four children, Connie (Scott) Humphrey, Kristin (Jerry) Humphrey, Bridgette (Bruce) Witte and Eric (Jena) Elmhorst; six grandchildren; one great-grandson; and a brother, Dale (Joann) Botnen.

Honorary casket bearers are Calvin Gerhardt, Benny Heck, Jesse Marty, Norm Saracoff, Fritz Seelow and Ronald Zank.
