Bonnie Lee Stover

March 25, 1934 — November 7, 2018

Bonnie Lee (Smallman) Stover, age 84 and longtime resident of Lyons, Ohio, went home to rest with the Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Wednesday morning, November 7, 2018, following a brief illness.

Born on March 25, 1934 in Morenci, Michigan to Lee Smallman and Eva (Price) Smallman, Bonnie grew up on a farm in rural Metamora, Ohio.  She graduated from Metamora High School in 1953 and worked at The Wire Factory in Wauseon.  Bonnie later provided in-home care for the elderly.

What Bonnie lacked in stature, she made up for in spunk.  She will be fondly remembered for her quick wit, dimpled grin, determination, independence, unique style and sense of adventure.  She enjoyed the outdoors, physical fitness, preparing healthy meals, crafting and spending time with family.

Bonnie was a member of the Lyons Christian Church and dutiful follower of Jesus Christ.  She committed countless hours to studying scripture and devotional reading in preparation for His return.  She recently traveled to Israel to visit the Holy Land and rededicated her commitment to Christ with baptism in the Jordan River.

Bonnie was preceded in death by her parents, Lee and Eva; brother, Nelson Smallman; spouses, Gilbert Culp, Floyd Crowell and Clifford Stover; and sons, David Culp and Danny Crowell. 

She is survived by her sister, Shirley Salsbury; brothers, Frank (Chloe) Smallman and Ian (Dorothy) Smallman; many nieces and nephews; and her beloved canine companion, Sheba.

Friends and family are invited to gather for visitation at the Weigel Funeral Home, 413 E. Main St., Metamora, Ohio on Monday, November 12th from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Visitation will continue Tuesday, November 13th from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the funeral home, where funeral services will begin at 11:00 a.m., with Pastor Heather Schimmel officiating.  Interment will follow at Amboy Township Cemetery.
