    Dear Jeff, Monica, and families... I am so very sorry to learn about your loss of Bonnie. Fortunately, death is only a temporary part of life. Jesus promised us a wonderful resurrection of the dead (John 5:28,29/1 Thessalonians 4:13, 14), so we have the hope of being reunited with our deceased loved ones. In the meantime, even though the pain of loss through death may sometimes seem insurmountable, rest assured that God will give you the strength necessary to endure the coming months (Psalm 46:1). Please accept my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences and please do feel free to contact me.

Bonnie Foley
Obituary Send Flowers Send a Card

Bonnie Sue Foley, 67, peacefully passed away in her home last week and went to be with the Lord.  Bonnie was born on November 16, 1949 in Pittsburgh, PA, the daughter of the late Charles and Virginia Heil.  She was also preceded in death by her husband, Steve Foley. 

She is survived by her two children and their spouses: Jeff and Erin Brovet of Raleigh, NC and Monica and Hunter Houck of Wilmington, NC.    She loved hearing stories that made her laugh about her five grandchildren: Bongiwe, Ava, Becket, Louisa, and Ethan.  She is also survived by her beloved sister, Judy Niro, as well the extended families of her three nephews, Dean Niro, Raymond Niro and Brian Niro.

Bonnie’s passing was sudden and her presence on this earth will be missed by those who she loved so dearly.  Bonnie was an avid gardener and received great joy from working in her yard. When her children arrived at her home this week, her rose bushes in her front yard were filled with red roses, there were two ferns on the front porch and several flats of flowers that still needed to be planted.   Bonnie was the owner and operator of Joli’s Salon in New Bern. 

Bonnie was always looking for ways to help her community.  She was very proud to sponsor the Beacon 92.7 Christian Radio Free Lunch Friday program that gave free lunches to listeners.  Bonnie was a very active and industrious woman.  She loved serving at Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, exploring marketing opportunities for her business, attending her church and exercising at the YMCA.  Her family is confident she is now busy tending to gardens at the gates of heaven.

There will be a gathering of family and friends on May 20 to celebrate Bonnie’s life at 1:00 at Grace Anglican Church 3407 Red Fox Rd. New Bern, NC with reception following.  The family will receive visitors at 12:00.

In lieu of flowers the family has requested donations to be made to the New Bern branch of the Food Bank of Eastern North Carolina.  See following link to Food Bank of New Bern.;jsessionid=00000000.app20103a?idb=1100681034&df_id=6942&mfc_pref=T&6942.donation=form1&NONCE_TOKEN=4B951248D636F32AA9D40A7FA68AEC2E&idb=0
