LaVonne Caroline "Bonnie" Prodoehl, of Deerbrook, died on Saturday, May 11, 2019 at her home under the care of her family and LeRoyer Hospice.

She was born on May 1, 1933, in Antigo, a daughter of the late Edward and Carmen (Fermanich) Draeger. She married John "Jack" Prodoehl on February 19, 1955, at St. Mary Catholic Church in Antigo.

Bonnie graduated from Antigo High School in 1951. She continued her education at Wausau Nursing School graduating in 1954.

Jack and Bonnie raised their five children on the family dairy farm in the Town of Rolling, then moved to Bass Lake in 1994.

In addition to her life long devotion of caring for others, Bonnie enjoyed traveling to Florida and Hawaii, and her weekly outings with her family and friends.

You have my deepest condolences for your loss of LaVonne. She showed true compassion for all as a nurse along with all her other interests. A woman where others came first. Death
is truly an enemy of all of us. Our loving heavenly father Jehovah knows the pain you are in and has promised a wonderful hope of a resurrection soon to come. That promise can be found in the Bible book of Revelation in chapter 21 and verses 3,4.

Bonnie (Bon Bon to the Draeger nieces and nephews) was a fun person to know. The Sulze (headcheese) she shared with Fr. Jerry was delicious. The commercial stuff pales by comparison. She will be missed by many. Mike Worman

To Leah and her family. Hold fast to all the wonderful memories and never let go! I met your Mom a few times here in Madison and she was just a jewel to be around. God’s got an awesome Angel to watch over you and your family! Rest In Heaven, Ms. Bonnie and be at peace.🙏🏾

Peace,
Your longtime neighbors,
Michelle, Noble, Brent & Elliot Wray
