Yurkovich, Bonnie Jean (18 October 1954 - 4 March 2010) 

Bonnie J. Yurkovich, 55, of Willard died Thursday March 4, 2010, at Luther Hospital in Eau Claire. 

Bonnie Jean Yurkovich was born Oct. 18, 1954, in Neillsville, the daughter of Valentine and Sylvia (Jelercic) Yurkovich.  She was raised on a farm near Willard and received her education in the Willard are, graduating from Greenwood High School in 1972.  Bonnie then attended Western Wisconsin Technical College in La Crosse where she studied to be a surgical technician.  After completing her schooling, she worked at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield as a surgical technician for 26 years and helped on the family farm.  Bonnie then worked at Land O’Lakes in Greenwood for three years and then returned to the family farm to work full-time. 

She had many interests but especially loved spending time with her family, baking and making wedding cakes, sewing, traveling, crafts, collecting antiques, skiing and sports.  Bonnie loved Brewer baseball and traveled to Florida for spring training several times.
