Bonnie Jean Mogg

Bonnie Jean (VanAuker) Mogg, age 79, of Maumee, Ohio, formerly of Swanton, passed away Monday December 3, 2018, surrounded by her loving family and her dog Tootsie, at The Lake of Sylvania.  She was born in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan on February 6, 1939 to the late Melville  and Edna (Salisbury) VanAuker.  Bonnie married the late Richard Mogg on August 20, 1960.  

Dick and Bonnie have 2 children: Jeff (Peggy) Mogg, Jackie (Chuck) Stein.
They have 3 married granddaughters:  Shea (Jake) Vincent, Kelly (Steve) Krekus, Kayla (Austin) Hickle.  And 3 beautilful great granddaughters: Raegan Vincent, Teagan Krekus and Paisley Hickle.  

Bonnie grew up on the family farm in Mt. Pleasant and graduated high school in 1957.   Bonnie met her future husband, Richard (Dick), while walking to Sunday school in Mt. Pleasant.  They celebrated 57 years together before Dick passed in September 2017.

She and Dick remained close friends with a few couples from high school.  The families vacationed at Torch Lake, Michigan for summer sun and winter snow skiing and snowmobiling.  They later met up in Arizona for golf, bocce ball, and playing cards.

Bonnie and Dick moved to Ohio in 1972 to grow the Mogg family business and to raise their family.  Bonnie put her husband and her family’s importance above herself .  She was an awesome stay-at-home mom and would “hold down the fort” while Richard traveled for work.  When Jeff & Jackie were young, Bonnie would load the kids (and pets) in the car on the weekends and holidays and drive to meet with Dick wherever he was working.  They made a loving, strong team to raise their kids, and enjoyed time spent with grandkids and great grandbabies.

Bonnie was always ready to join in anything that looked like fun – sports, crafts, amusement parks, and card games.  She didn’t always believe it, but she made friends easily.  Bonnie & Dick’s neighbors from Swanton remain like family to Jeff & Jackie.  Bonnie continued to play bridge with the same group of friends from 1972 up until just about 10 days before her death.  While her kids were in school, Bonnie enjoyed playing tennis, golf, and bowling.  She passed along her love of fun and the outdoors to her kids while playing catch in the yard, tennis in the street, and swimming in their pool.  She was always in the cheering section for Jeff’s baseball games.  Having fun playing cards was good for Bonnie, but making it a friendly competition was even better!

After Jeff & Jackie went off to college, Bonnie became a successful realtor throughout Toledo.  After retirement, Bonnie took up painting as a hobby.  Her beautiful artwork will be cherished by family and friends.  Bonnie’s love of cooking was passed on to her kids and grandkids.  Nothing beats a Mogg holiday feast with as many cooks in the kitchen as can fit.  It will not be the same, but we will continue the traditions and tell wonderful stories of the past.

Bonnie was a go-getter and her to-do list never gathered any dust.  She fought hard, but her health became too troubling.  Now is her time to meet back up with Dick.  

Family and friends may visit Saturday, December 8, 2018 from 10:00 am - 11:30 am at Weigel Funeral Home in Swanton, Ohio.  A memorial service will immediately follow with Rev. Donna Stutzman officiating.  Interment will be at the Swanton Township Cemetery.  

In lieu of flowers, Bonnie’s family would appreciate memorial contributions to Susan G. Komen (mission to end breast cancer).

My sincere and heartfelt sympathy on Bonnie's death. I'm sorry I did not get to know her better but the few times we talked she seemed to really love her new place in Deer Valley. I will miss seeing her little dog out in back. I am very saddened by this turn of events and pray for all of you during this difficult time.
