Bonnie Jean Naisbitt, 91, of Newton died on September 19, 2022, at Newton Village Health Care. Per her wishes there will be no services and burial will be at Colfax Cemetery. The Wallace Family Funeral Home and Crematory is handling the arrangements.
Bonnie, the daughter of George and Mary D. Weimer, was born January 31, 1931, in Valeria. She lived in and around Colfax most of her life and attended Colfax and Greencastle schools.
Bonnie was united in marriage with George W. “Bill” Naisbitt in 1947 in Colfax. They were married for 42 years. Bonnie worked at the Vernon Company in Newton for 37 years, retiring in 1993. After retirement, she moved to Newton.
Bonnie enjoyed riding and raising horses and was a member of the Paint Horse Association for many years. She was an avid gardener and always had the most beautiful flowers in her yard. Bonnie also enjoyed going shopping with her two sisters and occasionally with her daughter. Not a lot of shopping was done at times, but there was always a lot of laughter and good times.

She will be truly missed by those who love her and by those who considered her a friend.
