Bonnie J. Mitterreiter
Bonnie J. (Hartnell) Mitterreiter, 71, of Marinette, passed away Thursday, July 17 at Aurora BayCare Medical Center in Green Bay.
Born Sept. 28, 1942, in Kenosha, to Thomas G. and Mary E. (Timme) Hartnell, she spent her early years in Kenosha and moved to Amberg in 1989 with her husband to be near her parents after her husband retired from the DaimlerChrysler plant in Kenosha. They later moved to Marinette to help her parents while her father had cancer.
After graduating from Mary Bradford High School in 1960, she attended GTI Technical School for 2 years and worked for an insurance agent, Kelsey Welding, Kappus Bread Store, Sears and Vigansky Appliance Store, all in Kenosha, until her retirement in 1989. While in Kenosha, she married Thomas J. Mitterreiter on Aug. 4, 1962 at the First Methodist Church. When the couple moved to Marinette, they managed Foxx Glen and Forest Glen Mobile Home Parks until 2002. She enjoyed traveling, camping, horseback riding, swimming and crafts, but most of all, doll collecting.
She is survived by her husband, Thomas, of Marinette; two daughters, Kimberly (James) A. Mauser, of Kenosha and Vicki (Kenneth) J. Perry, of Amberg; three grandchildren; two brothers, Leith T. Hartnell, of Green Bay and Floyd A.
