     Bonnie Lee Grotewold was born on February 23, 1948 in Rock Rapids, Iowa, the daughter of John and Adeline (LaFrenz) Snyders. She grew up in Larchwood, Iowa, graduating from St. Mary's Catholic School. On January 18th, 1975 she married Robert Grotewold at the English Lutheran Church in Larchwood. They farmed near Lester, later moving into Larchwood. Bonnie owned both the Corner Café and the Dinner Bell in Larchwood; where her friendly smile and hot beef sandwich were legendary! Her hobbies included cross-stitch, collecting bird figurines, ceramics and tending her flowers. She especially enjoyed watching the activities and attending the birthday parties of her grandchildren, nieces and nephews. If anyone was leaving town and there was an extra seat in the car, she was game to go!

      Bonnie is survived by her four step-children: Edna (Calvin) Kellenberger, David (Tammy) Grotewold, Robert "Spud" (Mary) Grotewold, Darryl "Shorty" (Linda) Grotewold; 10 step-grandchildren, along with numerous step-great-grandchildren.

     Bonnie was preceded in death by her husband Bob; her parents John and Adeline; sister Barb; brother-in-law Larry Fernen; and nephew Pat Fernen.

Blessed be her memory.
