Rest in Peace Bonnie Johnson Selig

Thursday, October 8th, 2009

The genealogy world lost a good friend today. October 8, 2009, Bonnie Selig succumbed to Cancer. I “met” Bonnie awhile back through our volunteer work with RAOGK and it was obvious from the start she was a special person and a credit to a world I love so much… genealogy. I found Bonnie to be a warm, witty, funny person with a big heart.

Earlier this year when I took her spot on the staff of RAOGK, I prayed she would make a full recovery so that she could come back full time to the world she loved, and she served that world in the best possible way until she no longer could. People from across the nation benefited from her volunteer work and passion.

Bonnie will be missed in many ways by many people, and one of those people will be me.

My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends who’s main solace right now is that she is no longer in pain.

Bonnie, you were a shining example to a lot of people and we cared about you in our own unique way. Rest in peace lovely lady.
