Bonnie Jane Workman

September 27, 1939 — January 20, 2013

Bonnie Jane Workman, of Norris, Montana passed away Sunday, January 20, 2013 at home surrounded by her loving family. She was born September 27, 1939 in Casper, Wyoming to Edd Lee and Viola May (Taylor) Garrett. Bonnie grew up on the “Ted Barlow Ranch”, 10 miles west of Gillette, Wyoming. She graduated high school in Gillette in 1958. She then went on to receive an Associate Degree in Nursing from Montana State University – Billings and a Bachelor Degree in Nursing from Montana State University – Bozeman. She was a student nurse throughout her Nursing education. She married Dock Herbert Workman on April 15, 1972 in Sheridan, WY. Bonnie worked as nurse at Billings Deaconess for 12 years and also the veteran’s administration in Sheridan, Wyoming. She was the 2nd Nursing Administrator at the Ennis Hospital and also Director of Nursing in Helena and Bozeman. In addition to her long nursing career she owned and operated Rivergal Shuttle Service, LLC, which was a shuttle service for fly fisherman on the Madison River. Bonnie was also a member of the Western Ways Band in which she played upright and bass guitar. Obviously Bonnie was a very hard-working, career-oriented person, but she also enjoyed many other things. She loved to go dancing to western music, gardening, animals (especially horses) and talking to her fisherman customers. She was a very strong, beautiful woman that beat the odds. She was a teacher to many and absolutely loved her family. Bonnie was preceded in death by her parents and her first husband Harry Reno who passed away in 1977. She is survived by: her brother William Lee Garrett; sons Justin Joe Reno and Kenrick Owen Workman; daughter Crystal Bachmann; step-children Shea Workman and Russell Workman; 4 grandchildren; 2 great-grandchildren; and close family friends Ray Allison, Kevin Hodges and Mary Noble. Memorials may be made in Bonnie’s name to Warriors and Quite Waters Foundation, P.O. Box 1165, Bozeman, MT 59771-1165. A memorial service will be held at 2:00pm on Saturday, January 26, 2013 at Dahl Funeral Chapel.
