Bonita Mae Schafer, 81, of Marietta, passed away Wednesday, August 23, 2023 at Marietta Memorial Hospital.

In addition to her parents, Bonnie was preceded in death by her husband Gary and sister-in-law Priscilla Casto.

The family would like to thank Amedisys Hospice staff for the care and compassion they provided to Bonnie and the family.
