Bonnie Schwartz Obituary

Bonnie Grace Schwartz, 79, passed away at Peace Hospice surrounded by family on December 24, 2023. There are no services planned at this time; the family has entrusted Croxford Funeral Home with her care.

Bonnie was born on September 16, 1944, in Langdon, North Dakota to Ralph Roy and Martha Emily (Bateman) Nickerson. Here she was raised, attending local schools, and graduating from Hannah Legionnaires in 1962. Though she received a formal education, Bonnie earned much of her knowledge from the school of hard knocks.

As a teenager, Bonnie met Raymond Schwartz at the Green Mill Café in Langdon, and at the age of 20, she would go on to marry him. They were wed on November 6, 1964, and the couple would go on to share the next 59 years of their lives together.

Later in life, Bonnie, Ray and their baby girls would move to Montana.  Soon after came their two sons. Though she had worked as a waitress, and later as a business owner, Bonnie’s most notable career was her job as a mother and wife. Being a homesteader, she raised her family on the land her and Raymond owned.

Bonnie had many hobbies, including canning, baking, cooking, washing clothes the old-fashioned way, gardening, sewing, and knitting. These were some of the many ways she showed love, and she was welcoming to everyone.  Rich or poor, all were loved. Bonnie was a huge fan of country music, some of her favorites being Waylon Jennings and Loretta Lynn. She had a soft spot for Elvis, and he even had a whole bedroom wall just for him. 

Bonnie greatly admired the military and often gave contributions to many organizations that were helping our veterans. She was quite a patriot!

Bonnie was preceded in death by her loving husband, Ray Schwartz; son, Reno Ray; and brother, Wendall Nickerson. These are her closest souls lost, but her big family is numerous and is welcoming her with open arms.

She is survived by her daughters, Corrina and Kimberly Schwartz; her son, Utah; five grandchildren, Dorinda, Shadai, Rilee, Kiera, and Blaine, a son from her son! She is also survived by three great grandchildren:  Kain, Jacen, and Kaelyn.  Bonnie also has many nieces, nephews and friends who share our grief at this time.  She was so loved.
