Bonny L. Huston
Bonny Loree Huston, of Traverse City and formerly of the Manton area, passed away on Friday, Nov. 15, 2019 at Country Pleasures Assisted Living in Traverse City with family by her side. She was 80. Bonny was born on Aug. 29, 1939 in Traverse City to Merrit and Celia (VanPelt) Strange.
On Sept. 15, 1961 she entered into marriage with Marvin Owen Huston at the Manton United Methodist Church. The couple enjoyed traveling together and spent many winters as snow birds in Gulf Shores, Alabama. They cherished their cabin at Rennie Lake and spent much time making it the perfect spot for family gatherings.
Bonny spent her career working as a banker for many years until her time of retirement.
She liked listening to music and was most fond of Elvis. She enjoyed being goofy and making her family and friends laugh. She was known by her family as "go-go Bonny" for being always on the go and up to a new adventure. Bonny loved spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
