Bonnie Lou Sherman Smith entered the gates of heaven Monday, February 22, 2021. Loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother; although many knew her as Boolou or just simply Boo. The laughter heaven gained will be missed here on earth.
Bonnie was born in 1939 to Marvin and Beulah Sherman. She is preceded in death by her husband of 62 years, Kenneth H. Smith, Sr; infant son Marty, brothers June and John Sherman; and sister Eleanor Shirk. She is survived by daughter Christy Smith, son Kenneth H. Smith II and wife Christy; grandchildren Mindy and husband Philip; Jeff and wife Amber; Trey and wife Jessica; Tiffany and partner Ronnie; great grandchildren Jeffrey, Chaylinn, Abigail, Jonathan, Solomon, Clara, Cayden, Tilley, Cove, Kenley, and Brenlynn; and numerous nieces nephews, cousins, and friends.
Boolou never met a stranger, and made friends everywhere she went. She loved her family, and hated to leave us, and although our hearts are filled with sorrow; she is walking in Glory Land. She too will hear such sweet words, “well done thou good and faithful servant”.
Family and friends will be received from 2:30 pm to 3 pm on Thursday, February 25, 2021, at Lighthouse Baptist Church, 2581 Northwestern Pike, Winchester, VA.
A funeral service will follow the visitation at 3 pm at the church with her son, K.H. Smith officiating. Mrs. Smith will be laid to rest at Rosedale Memorial Park, located on the grounds of Lighthouse Baptist Church.
