LaVonne “Bonnie” Fleskes, age 87, of Fort Walton Beach, went to be with our Lord on July 6, 2021. In 1962, she moved to Fort Walton Beach with her husband Don and three daughters. She later began her career with the City of Fort Walton Beach and retired as an accountant. In her spare time she enjoyed reading, painting, crocheting, golfing, and most of all being a loving “Gran”. She was a Christian, devout in her faith and led many to the Lord.
Bonnie is preceded in death by her parents, Clifford and Ollie McConnaughay; her loving husband Don Fleskes; brother Robert McConnaughay and sister Barbara Love. She is survived by her three daughters, Pamela (Michael) Jimmerson, Cynthia (Alex) Zelius, and Donetta (Rick) Czeck; 4 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren; sister, Karen Nuelle (Jim), numerous nieces and nephews, and a multitude of dear neighbors and friends.
A memorial service to celebrate Bonnie’s life will be held at a later date. In remembrance, donations may be made to Taylorville Christian Church, 1124 North Webster, Taylorville, IL 62568 to support the Backpack Ministry, feeding elementary students over the weekends.
Our heartfelt thanks to Dr. Stephen Gilmore, the Medical Team at Fort Walton Beach Medical Center, and Covenant Hospice.
