Bonnie Mae Soderberg

Bonnie Mae Soderberg, 72, of Laramie passed away on Monday, April 22, 2019 at her home. Bonnie was born in Laramie on January 22, 1947 to Dewey and Lila Johnson.

They lived in Fox Park for a short time before moving back to their forever home in Laramie.


Bonnie was a gambling lady who loved to play slot machines, Bingo and cards. She also spent many years bowling. One of her favorite things to do however, was spending time with her family at their cabin near Woodedge.

Burial will be at Greenhill Cemetery with a reception immediately following the service at the VFW. Please feel free to wear something yellow, as it was Bonnie’s favorite color.

    Monika, Erling, and Family - You won't remember me, but you know others from our family. My deepest sympathies. Your Mom and Dad were such special people in my and our lives. For the entire time they rented from my parents, to my Mom having to sternly tell your father to get off the roof and get to the hospital before he missed Monkia being born, to the endless years of friendship Bonnie (and your Dad) provided to me personally can never be repaid or FORGOTTEN. GOD has a special place in heaven for your Mom and Dad. Be as wonderful as they were, they will never be forgotten. Thank you for sharing them. Bob Waddell II

    Monika, Erling & families, We are sorry to hear of Bonnie's passing. She was a wonderful lady. We have so many memories of her from watching soccer, to taking Sage to swim lessons and visiting with my dad. Also visit with her when my grandparents lived across the street in Roach Addition. May you find peace in the loving memories you all have made and shared with her. She loved all of you so much. The Jackson's & The Schott's.
