Bonnie Lee McGlennon

June 22, 1936 - March 12, 2018

Bonnie Lee (Breeding) McGlennon, 81 of Springfield, died at 10:20 am, Monday, March 12, 2018 at Lewis Memorial Christian Village.

She was born June 22, 1936 in New Berlin, to Walter “Bud and Mildred “Millie” Wagner Breeding. They preceded her in death as well as her brother, Robert “Bob” Breeding.

She is survived by her two daughters: Crystal Pletscher, Lewis Pletscher of Springfield and Courtney (Chad) Winkler of Glen Carbon and the most precious joys of her life – her grandchildren, Braden Pletscher, Corinna Winkler and Colette Winkler. She was their Moo Moo and told everyone she met about these cherished children whom she loved so dearly.

She is also survived by two sisters – whose love was very strong Betty (Clyde) Stephens of New Berlin and Barbara (Phil) Reichart of Springfield. She had several nieces and nephews that she loved as well.

Bonnie never met a stranger. She befriended many during her lifetime – having many deep fun friendships with those she met along the way. She enjoyed playing the piano, baking cookies and feeding her loved ones. Her time on God’s earth was about caring, loving and nurturing those around her and always hoping for peace among all.

She worked for several insurance companies; including Franklin Life, Horace Mann and Standard Mutual Insurance, from where she retired.

Bonnie was a caregiver first and foremost to those in need. Her heart was huge and she truly enjoyed meeting people and caring about them.

Bonnie unknowingly suffered from a vicious disease called Alzheimers that slowly destroyed her decision making abilities.

Joyfully Bonnie is united with the Lord and reunited with many lost loved ones including her two husbands, Joseph Ward and Richard McGlennon.
