Bonnie Mae Jewell Hall, age 86, of Marysville, died peacefully Saturday, January 2, 2021 at The Bluebird Retirement Community. She was a 1952 graduate of Marysville High School where she was a cheerleader for three years. Bonnie’s career included her skills as a bookkeeper for the Union County Farm Bureau and DeGroot and Geyer’s Tire Service. She also was an associate for American Greeting Card company for 20 years. A loving and dedicated wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, she always made her family her “number one” priority. Born on the family farm in Dover Township, she was an avid gardener and had a “green thumb” for her flowers and vegetables. She also loved watching and nurturing the birds and enjoyed making all hand-stitched quilts and crocheted afghans. She and her husband, Jim, worked as gate keepers at the Delaware County Fair for many years. They also loved to travel the United States and spent the winter months in Florida where she enjoyed the beach and collected hundreds of shells and shark teeth. A charter member of Marysville OCCL Mother’s Study Club, she was a member of Marysville First United Methodist Church where she served on the administrative board, was church treasurer for seven years and tended to the altar cloths. She will be remembered for her heart of kindness, a keen ability to make others laugh and her creativity in cooking and thriftiness. She was born January 10, 1934 in Dover Township to the late Ray and Alice Moseley Jewell. She was also preceded in death by a grandson, Bryan Freeman Yoder; her brother, Ross Jewell; her sister, Rhoda Rogers; a niece, Lori Rogers Rodman; and a son-in-law, Gerald “Jerry” Strauss. She is survived by her loving and devoted husband of 68 years, James L. “Jim” Hall, whom she married June 22, 1952; her children, Steve (Karen) Hall of Dublin, Susie Strauss of Worthington and Sandy (Roger) Yoder of Bluffton, South Carolina; her grandchildren, Jason (Krista) Hall, Michael (Danielle) Hall, Jerry Strauss, Victoria Strauss, Jenna (Dan) Keane, Travis (Meghan) Yoder; her great-grandchildren, Riley, Olivia, Logan, Hudson, Parker, Rowan, Schuyler and Teddy; her sister, Linda (Robert) Baker; and several nieces and nephews and other relatives.
