Bonnie J. Pitner

At 4 am on Feb. 23, our beautiful mother and friend, Bonnie Jean Herring Pitner caught her train into heaven. Born Oct. 2, 1945 in Hill, New Mexico to Fines Garret Herring Sr. and Willie Alyene Hart Herring, she grew up in New Mexico with her brother, Gary Herring. The family moved throughout southern New Mexico, until settling in the town of Anthony.

Bonnie would also grow up with the love of her life, Bryant lee Pitner Sr. She knew, even at the age of three that she would someday become Mrs. Bryant Lee Pitner. That day would happen, twice, in April of 1960. They eloped into Mexico, the first time and then nearly had a shotgun wedding two weeks later.

Soon after, they would move to Arizona, where they would raise their family of two boys, Bryant Lee Pitner Jr. (Suzanne) and Dave Garrett Pitner (Vanessa), and a daughter Wanda Kaye Jean Pitner Hopp (Shane). She was also blessed with grandchildren Bradlee Pitner, Tonja Meadows, Benjamin Meadows, Garrett Pitner (Angel), Justin Pitner, Tyson Pitner, Shannon Pitner, and Logan Hopp. She was also blessed, again, by a great-grandchild, Chloe Meadows. She will be greatly missed, but always in our hearts.

A small private service will be held, at a later date.
