Bonnie Jane Groves Waters left this world on February 14th, 2018 to be with our Heavenly Father and her husband in a new home where there will be no more sadness and no more pain. Bonnie courageously fought Alzheimer’s and cancer.
Bonnie was born on October 31, 1947, in Wilmington NC to the late Hill Groves and Thelma Ruth Groves Roberts. She is preceded in death not only by her loving husband of 43 years, whom is waiting for her arrival at the pearly gates, her parents and two sisters, Pat Groves Weston and Barbara Groves Marcom. Bonnie is survived by a brother, Tommy Groves of Hampstead, a son, John Waters, III, and a daughter, Rebecca (Becky) Waters of Hampstead. Bonnie is also survived by three grandchildren; John Waters (Ceara) of Pink Hill, Tessie Waters (Matt) of Hampstead and Michael Fellows of Hampstead and one great grandchild, Braelyn Austin.
Bonnie enjoyed her life as a mother, grandmother and a homemaker. Some of her proudest times were when her grandchildren were born. She will be missed dearly by her family and friends. Her family wishes to extend a special thank you to the Lower Cape Fear Hospice Staff especially Betty and Alex.
The family will receive friends at 6:00 pm on February 20th at Blakes Chapel Advent Christian Church Fellowship Hall. Memorial Service will follow the visitation with Pastor Edward Dowd officiating.
