Funeral services for Bonnie Scott, 95, of Mobridge were held Saturday, Sept. 29, 2012, at United Congregational Church.
Burial was at Greenwood Cemetery under the direction of Kesling Funeral Home of Mobridge.
Mrs. Scott passed away Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2012, at Mobridge Regional Hospital.
Eileen “Bonnie” Lavon Scott was born Jan. 31, 1917, to William and Lily (Carlson) Zimmer in Mobridge. She attended grade school and graduated from Mobridge High School.
On Dec. 22, 1941, Bonnie married the love of her life, Dean R. Scott in Miles City, Mont. Their marriage was kept a secret for several years as the telephone company for which Bonnie worked would not allow married women to work. She was employed with the Northwestern Bell Telephone Company for more than 30 years.
Bonnie was a lifetime member of United Congregational Church. She was generous, loving and kind, with a great sense of humor.
Bonnie is survived by her siblings, Eugene Zimmer of Alexandria, Va., Phyllis Harris of Mobridge, Kaye Vander Ven of Alexandria, Va., and Rosalie (Jerry) Travis of Sun City West, Ariz. She is also survived by her adoring nieces and nephews, extended family and friends.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Dean, daughter, DeeAnn, and siblings, William Zimmer, Doris Pooley, Lyle Zimmer and James Zimmer.
Memorials may be directed towards the UCC Church or the Mobridge Swimming Pool Fund.
