On Friday, January 10, 2020 at 4:46 p.m. our dear mother, Bonnie Faye Stegall, surrounded by her family that she loved so much, went to be with the Lord. She had been very ill with oral cancer and a recent outbreak of shingles and was in Hospice care at the home of our sister. She was born on February 24, 1931 in Parkin, Arkansas to the late Clarence and Lillie Milton. In addition to her parents she is preceded in death by her husband, Richard Stegall and brothers, Charles and Billy Milton.
She often talked of Daddy coming to her in her dreams and how real it seemed. Now they are rejoicing together in Heaven along with so many of the loved ones that have gone on before. No more pain, no more sorrow, no more suffering, only Victory in Jesus.
Our family was truly blessed to have had her in our lives. I know because of the faith that she shared with us that she is now resting and with our Lord.
