She will be greatly missed by her 20 grandchildren Nick, Natalie, Larissa, Katherine, Nicholas, Kristian, Erin, Vanessa, Johnathan, Amanda, Kristen, Alissa, Dennis, Jessica, Rebecca, Michael, Julia, Lauren, Sebastian, and Sofia, along with her 17 great-grandchildren, with one more on the way.

Predeceased by her father Alfred Oatridge, mother Leona Oatridge (nee Campbell), sister Noreen Nelligan (nee Oatridge), husband Donald Alexander Field, and great-granddaughter Ellie Lavon Callow.

Bonnie always loved knitting, playing cards, and collecting turtles, despite her collection starting by accident, she loved them. In her younger years, she loved spending time playing darts, going to the Deaf Club, enjoying Tuesday lunches out with her sister, cousins and mom, staying active with her fellow mall walkers, taking care of her house plants, and traveling with family. She loved all animals from squirrels to cats but had a unique connection with dogs that could be seen by everyone, they were always drawn to her. Family was the most important thing to Bonnie, and she showed it every day.

Bonnie was an amazing and compassionate caregiver. She took care of everyone from her mother, to her children, to her grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Bonnie was modest, full of joy, love, understanding, and had a great sense of humour with a quick wit, and the best laugh.

Bonnie spent her final years living, enjoying adventures, and laughing with her granddaughter Erin Poort, with her husband Adam, and their four young children Jade, Alys, Eden and Andi.

The family wishes to extend heartfelt gratitude to the compassionate nurses, dedicated doctors and supportive 4th floor staff at St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital for their exceptional care and unwavering support during Bonnie's time of need. Your kindness and professionalism will always be remembered.

At Bonnie's request, there will be no formal service. Instead, a Celebration of Life organized by the family, will be held at a later date to honour Bonnie's memory and legacy. Details regarding this celebration will be announced once they are finalized.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that donations be made to the London Deaf Club https://www.londondeafclub.com/donation or the St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital Foundation https://www.steghfoundation.ca/ways-to-support/in-memory in honour of Bonnie.
