Giving Life a Second Chance
Through Organ & Tissue Donation

"Threads of Love" Donor Memorial Quilt: Quilt 28

Bonnie Miller

Our mother/Mimi, (Bonnie Heidlebaugh Miller)

Mother was a very special woman. She loved her children and grandchildren. She always wanted to help people. Whether it by donating her organs to help someone to have a better life, or by giving someone a place to stay. When she retired she lived in Delaware, Florida and Arizona and then returned to Pennsylvania where her friends and family lived. However, she made friends wherever she lived and was always doing something. When she lived in Arizona she joined a Methodist church and was in the choir of over 100 singers. She also belonged to a singing group (Desert Bells) that sang at nursing homes, churches, etc...She worked part-time for her son. In Florida she worked at a real estate office. She was a very happy, vibrant and loving person.

Mother loved the beach. The week before she died she was in Myrtle Beach with her grandchildren and children. Swimming in the ocean, playing with them in the pool, and eating crabs with them. She also enjoyed going to Curves, playing in a card group with her lady friends. She was taken from us for no certain reason, and now she is in God's hands. We miss her very much, but we know with the tissues she donated she has given other people a new life and that is what she would have wanted. She was a very giving and thoughtful person. Mom, we miss you and love you very much.

Robin, Juli, Dave, Jim, spouses & grandchildren
