Bonnie Bugg

Augusta, GA- Bonnie Louise Bugg was born 04/23/1955 in Columbia, SC and passed away peacefully 11/05/2021 in La Crosse, WI with her son and daughter-in-law by her side.

Bonnie was first and foremost a servant of God. She loved the Lord with all her heart. She was an amazing mother and grandmother. Bonnie was a longtime member of St. James United Methodist Church in Augusta, Ga where she volunteered her time in the nursery and many other areas of the church. She spent most of her adult life caring for others as a Licensed Practical Nurse in nursing homes and later as an at home caregiver for her mother.

After the passing of her mother, she moved to Zion, IL to live with her son, daughter-in-law and her grandchildren. She attended Christ Community Church in Zion, IL where she volunteered her time in the nursery as well as with the AWANA Cubbies program.

In 2020 the family moved from Zion, IL to West Salem, WI where Bonnie enjoyed the small-town life and scenic rolling hills of western Wisconsin which reminded her of the Great Smoky Mountains.

She is survived by her son William Larson Wright (Sara Lynn), and her five grandchildren Kylie Lynn Wright, Lillian Louise Wright, David Alexander Wright, Madelynn Louise Wright, and Natalie Lynn Wright.

She was preceded in death by her father Alexander H. S. Bugg Sr., her mother Louise Elders Bugg, and her brother Alexander H. S. “Bubba” Bugg Jr.
