Obituary

Bonnie Simpson Jennings, age 64, of Claymont DE, died Wednesday, December 28, 2022. 

Bonnie was a 1976 graduate of William Penn High School and a 1979 graduate of Union Memorial Hospital’s School of Nursing.  She started her career as a Cardiac ICU nurse at Wilmington Hospital in Wilmington DE, then worked at various other nursing related jobs in the area until she became medically disabled in the late 1990’s.

In spite of suffering from numerous severe health issues for her entire adult life, she maintained an active life until nearly the very end.  For example, her family and the many recipients of her homemade jams/jellies/preserves and baked goods can attest to her excellent cooking skills.  However, she regarded raising Yelena as her greatest accomplishment and was satisfied with what she had accomplished with her life at the end.

Bonnie is survived by her husband, James, and her daughter, Yelena, both of Claymont DE, her brother, Matthew Simpson, of Middletown DE, and many nieces and nephews.

A Visitation will be held Wednesday, January 11, 2023 from 2pm to 3pm at Gebhart Funeral Home, 3401 Philadelphia Pike, Claymont, DE 19703, where a Memorial Service will begin at 3pm.  Burial will be private.
