Bonnie Lou (Weber) Marrs was born in Merriman, NE, on Nov 20, 1928, to Fredrick W and Vera E (Stultz) Weber. She passed from this life to her eternal home on March 1, 2023, at Chadron Community Hospital in Chadron, NE.

Bonnie married the love of her life, Oscar Dale Marrs, on August 30, 1946, in Valentine, NE, and they celebrated 51 years of marriage before Dale passed away on Dec 22, 1997. To this union 4 children were born, Terry, Bill, Don, and Dee.

Bonnie enjoyed camping, gardening, and traveling to visit family, which she and Dale always did together. She did not know a stranger. Her greatest joy was her babies, no matter how old they are.

She is survived by her children Terry (Sherrie) Marrs of Pikeville, KY; Bill (Kathy) Marrs of Crystal Lake, IL; Don (Sandy) Marrs of Rapid City, SD; and Dee (Arty) Vinton of Gordon, NE.

Bonnie is also survived by 14 grandchildren, 26 great-grandchildren, 10 great-great-grandchildren, cousin Eldon Lessert. and extended family and friends.

She was the “other Mother” to Judy, Diana, Bev, John, Tom, and Dick, who also survive her.

Bonnie was preceded in death by her husband Dale; great-grandson Tayler Fuchs; her parents; grandparents; special cousins Sis, Teenie, Bobby Ann and Jack; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Bonnie’s family would like to extend a very special Thank You to all the staff at Pioneer Manor Nursing Home in Hay Springs, NE, where Bonnie lived the last year of her life. We cannot express our gratitude to all of you enough for the love you showed to our Mom.
