Bonita Faye (Ness) Leopold was born September 9, 1945 in Red Wing, Minnesota to Myron and Geneva (Gluesen) Ness. She was confirmed at 14 years old at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Redwood Falls. On November 17, 1961 she married John Dennis Kretsch and that union gave her four daughters. On September 14, 1996 she married Rodney Leopold in Morgan, Minnesota and they made their home in Redwood Falls. Bonnie was a member of Zion Lutheran Church in Morgan and attended King of Kings in Apache Junction, Arizona. She was an honorary auxiliary member, and she volunteered at Friends of Gilfillan making ice cream for FarmFest. Bonnie enjoyed farming, riding horse, bowling league, making creative jewelry, canning everything, exploring the desert, riding on the razor, hosting all holiday get togethers. She was an excellent cook, loved going to the lake, and camping, particularly at Old Wagon Campground in New London with any family that could join. Bonnie was known for her infectious laugh!
She is survived by her husband Rodney Leopold; daughters, Camey Graham, Kim (Greg) Malecek, Carmen Prodoehl (Ron Melby), Colleen Serbus (David Hansen); step-children, Lori Schoening, Tharan (Ruth) Leopold; 15 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren.
