Mrs. Bonnie Jean Fox Partridge was born April 9th, 1924 in Muskogee, Oklahoma. She graced us with her presence for almost 98 years, departing this Earth on Tuesday, February 22nd, 2022. With her daughter by her side, she went home. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband George A (Pat) Partridge and son George Allen Partridge. She is survived by her daughter, Patricia Toombs; grandchildren, Tammy Pennington, Marcus Partridge, Patrick Partridge, Dexter Toombs, Ricky Jay Partridge and Vickie Venable; great granddaughter, Misty Wiggs; and great-great granddaughter, Addie Dotson. She had a very close kinship with several special nieces and nephews who will remember her fondly for many years to come.
Ms Bonnie was the last of her generation, a true spitfire of a matriarch who was always busy caring for others and making sure that whatever was getting done, was getting done right. She loved her family fiercely and was always willing to help in any way. And of course that would mean feeding everyone whatever tasty dish she had whipped up that day. Bonnie and Pat would host giant fish fries for the family and in later years after he was gone, she devoted much of her time to volunteering. She hosted many special events and games at local nursing homes and spent hours sitting with the elderly offering friendship and companionship. She volunteered with the Midland Journey of Hope Food Ministries up until her last few years. She was a distinguished 50 plus year member of the Order of the Eastern Star, holding every available office at least once. She sold Avon for decades and became a good friend to many women in her community. She always kept a smile on her face and a caring hand reached out to help someone. She was loved by many and will be greatly missed and we all hope to carry on her legacy in the future generations of our family.
