Edna L. Bonner

Edna Ruth Bonner (Nee Larsocia) was born in Little Chastang, AL to Maryann Larsocia and Theodore Chastang on Monday, Nov 29, 1937.

 

She received her early education in Little Chastang and graduated from The Most Pure Heart of Mary Catholic High School, located in Mobile, AL, where she moved to at age 9. She attended St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Mobile, AL and St. James in Pritchard, AL after relocating with her husband, Clarence Bonner.

 

In 1958, Edna began her Federal civilian service at Brookley Air Force Base (BAFB) in Pritchard, AL. BAFB closed in 1969 and Edna and family relocated to Harrisburg, PA. She began working as a Keypunch Operator at the Navy Supply Depot in Mechancisburg, PA and retired 33 1/2 years later from the New Cumberland Army Depot as a General Supply Specialist with the US Army Security Assistance Command, Foreign Military Sales Division. Over the years, Edna worked various part-time jobs from the ticket booth at the former PenWay Theater, teaching keypunch at the Opportunities Industrialization Center (OIC) and finally, retiring a second time, 12 years later from Chromolloy, previously TRW.

 

Edna was a huge die-hard Alabama Crimson Tide fan. In her leisure, she enjoyed sleeping in late, working crossword puzzles, listening to old R&B music, cooking, watching General Hospital, playing solitaire on her computer, and perusing Facebook. Edna loved and was proud of her Catholic faith. She was a devout member of the Cathedral Parish of St. Patrick and had previously served as a Eucharistic minister and at the former Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish.

 

On Sunday, June 19, 2022, Edna changed her earthly clothes into her heavenly robes. Edna leaves to celebrate her life, her sisters, Emma Mangum (Louis) of Columbus, OH, Frances Chastang of Calvert, AL, her sister-cousin, Shirley Munson (Charles) of Williamstown, NJ; her beloved children, Denise Williams (Louis), Barry Bonner (Terri), Vicki Bonner, all of Harrisburg; Rodney Bonner of Chester, VA and Trye Bonner (TommiAnn) of Harrisburg; her cherished grandchildren, Taj, Nicole, Naydia, Lakiya, Christian, Briana, A’Janae, Ah’Nyla, Nasya, India, Lilyaunah, and great-grandson, Marquis, as well as her lil’ buddy, Colten and a host of loved ones.
