Bonnie Sue Stiff, 58, of Wanatah, formerly of Westville passed away Friday, October 20, 2017 at home with her family. She was born October 5, 1959 to Nelson & Sylvia (Archer) Lovely and graduated from South Central High School in 1978. She made her career as a housekeeper with Valparaiso Care & Rehabilitation Center for the past 6 years. Bonnie was generous to a fault, offering time, talent and treasure ahead of her own needs. Her cooking skills brought foods to a delicacy level. House plants thrived in her presence and television crime shows were no match for her sleuthing. She became a single mother when Kelly was only 3 years old, but her ornery and industrious personality drove her forward, working multiple jobs that helped produce 2 beautiful and confident daughters.  On August 9, 2000 she married Patrick Stiff who preceded her in death in 2001. Survivors include her daughters, Kimberly (Zach) Lute of LaPorte & Kelly Stiff of Wheatfield, mother, Sylvia Lovely of Wanatah and sisters, Lynn (Jay) Louck of LaPorte & Pat (Mark) Gott of DeMotte. She was also preceded in death by her father, Nelson Lovely.
A private family service will be held. Bonnie’s loving spirit will be dearly missed by family and friends.  Her memory will continue for decades in the hearts of all she knew.
