Bonnie W. Shea

Happy, horse loving, banjo player

Bonnie W. Shea, of Milford, Delaware, passed away at home on December 23rd

after a courageous battle with cancer. Bonnie was born in Georgetown on

December 15, 1948 to James A. West and Hazel (Spence) West.

Bonnie grew up in Georgetown and enjoyed music, singing, sewing and animals,

especially horses. She also enjoyed spending time with her paternal

grandparents, James & Clara West. Bonnie loved spending time with her family

and friends and she especially enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren.

She liked to crochet and if she found out your favorite color she’d show up with

a scarf or blanket made just for you. Her love of horses continued through her

entire life. She enjoyed riding and collecting horse art. Her love of music

continued as well. She taught herself to play the banjo over the past few years

and would often play her favorite song “You are my Sunshine” for family and

friends. Bonnie’s personality was always sunny and her greatest goal was to

make those around her happy. She will be missed dearly by her family and


Bonnie is survived by her husband Gary D. Shea, her daughter and son-in-law,

Ami and Ryan Rae, her son Thomas H. Clendaniel and his fiancé Kara Smith,

granddaughter Kiarae Campbell, grandson Quinn Rae, granddaughter Marley

Clendaniel and MacKenzie Lewis.

The family invites friends to join them to celebrate Bonnie’s life on Sunday,

February 4, 2018 from 12pm to 3pm at The Backyard restaurant, 211 Broadkill

Rd, Milton, DE.
