Bonita “Bonnie” Mae Swontek (nee Baptie), 71, of Middlefield, passed away peacefully at her home Saturday morning, March 27th, 2021. She was born in Ravenna, Ohio on November 22nd, 1949 to the late Kenneth J. and Berniece (Soltis) Baptie. Bonnie is once again reunited with her loving husband of 42 years Gary L. Swontek, who passed September 24th, 2013.
Bonnie spent 40+ years as a hard-working legal assistant and brilliant business woman, all while raising three unruly kids that loved her fiercely. Bonnie loved dancing with Gary, traveling, cooking, and sleepovers with her sisters. But her FAVORITE was spending time with her beautiful and blessed grandchildren. And, if anyone had a baby over the last 30 years, you can be sure she sent one of her famous crocheted blankets.
