This is to a wonderful kind hearted woman who touched a lot of peoples lives. She was someone I talked to at bingo every time I went.

A Friend

I still can't believe this is true. We have been through so much over the years they can't go unremembered at all. If it wasn't for you teaching me how to drive, I probably would not have a license to this day. This is so hard to still sink in that you have left us so unexpected... watch over us and keep us in line although I know it was hard when you were raising five teenagers at one time and one NOT a teenager. I will always remember and I am currently craving your garbage soup and you never gave me the recipe to. Oh and how we used to have to make kool-aide in our recycled milk jugs...
Fly high Fonda aka Arms our chapters together will never go unremembered... xoxo

Heather Bentley

My heart is saddened to hear of the loss of my childhood friend, she has gone home.
Fonda was a wonderful women, our lives crossed paths several times in this lifetime. I will miss her greatly.. so in her honor, I will recite something from our childhood:

"Good evening ladies and jelly beans, of the United snakes of asparagus,
I come before you to be in back of you, to tell you something I myself know nothing about, this Tuesday which is Good Friday, there will be a meeting in the gym, admission free, just be sure to pay at the door, we will be discussing the four corners of a round table."

Godspeed Fonda, and looking forward to seeing you when I come home!

Erin Reed

R.I.P Love bug you were truly a true and loyal friend to me. Your laughter just filled my heart and I miss you more than words can say. I know your at peace now and are surrounded by many loved ones I love you and will carry you in my heart til we meet again ❤❤

Nita Sycuro

Oh, Fonda,
Mere words cannot express the bond we had..I loved you with my whole heart, and now a part of my heart is missing you. You taught me well, my friend and opened my eyes to things I never saw before. I thank you for that. So very thankful for all the memories we made together that no one can take from, me. Laughing so hard we couldn't breathe !! Crying so much are noses ran away !! The rollercoaster rides everyday!! Always,always being there for each other when we needed it most. Thinking and saying the same thing at the same time. I love you deeply, my friend my life will never be the same without you..but always know this, your dogs will still be spoiled and run our house as they always have!! Love you...Nita

Fonda, you were like a sister

Fonda, you were like a sister to me and I loved friend. I will keep the memories of the great times we had. I will never forget you my friend. RIP hon. My heart breaks for your loss on this earth. So long and see you on the other side.

Dawn St.Pierre

I can't believe I am writing this here. You were one of the best friends I ever had. The laughs we shared, the tears, all of the good times and bad. Our children grew up together. I now have a huge hole in my heart that will never be filled again, it is your spot and always will be. We will see each other again some day, we can then hold each other and cry then laugh about it like we used to. I am so sorry that I cannot come see you off, my funds are low and I have no way there. I love you my friend....till we meet long for now.

Amanda Payton

I'll cherish the times we shared and never forget you. You were many things to me and the world is a much darker place without you. All our therapy sessions, all our wild times..???? I love you "fondelya" it's never goodbye but until we meet again! Endless bingo and hotties up there ???? I will miss you until I see you again.
To her loved ones:
My sincere condolences. Your mother left her mark on everyone she came across (some literally lol). She was a one of a kind and a DAMN good woman. One of the toughest I know. She will forever live on through all of you. I'm here if anyone needs an ear.

Jeannie Lanoue Forand

My sweet Fonda. My childhood friend and school mate. I have no words for this loss. I’m coming back from Florida to see you one last time my buddy. I really wish you came with me. We’ve been friends for half a decade and I will never find another one like you. Me and you together actually scared people at times. You had the biggest heart of anyone. RIP my childhood friend. I miss you more then words can say. You have always had my heart. I will see you Friday but Iam not saying goodbye. I will say so long until we meet again and will cause trouble again together someday. Love u my friend.

Pat Bickelhaupt

May you Rest In Peace my friend.
