Obituary

Bonnie Franklin was born in Honey Grove, Texas on September 16, 1929 and raised on the family cotton farm. Being the only daughter of the four children, "she never had to pick cotton". In 1946, at the ripe old age of 16, Bonnie met John Sortore while he was serving in the United States Army, married soon thereafter, and spent 71 wonderful years together.

Bonnie was a wonderfully kind, gentle, and loving person. She worked various different jobs over the years to assist her family financially. She loved our family deeply and touched our lives and the lives of others in such a special way. She'll always be a part of our spirit.

Bonnie was preceded in death by her husband, John and son, J. Michael.

Bonnie is survived by her daughter, Charlotte Fulton and her husband David; her brothers, Bill Franklin and wife Sonya; and Larry Franklin and wife Charlotte; grandson, Cliff Bergfeld and wife Debbie; great-granddaughters, Hannah and Heidi; grandsons, Johnny Michael and Anthony Sortore.

Although her death is a great loss to her remaining family, it was a gift to our father John, as she was reunited with him in heaven on his 91st birthday.

In accordance with her wishes there will be no funeral or memorial.
