Joan Joyce Bonter, 70

Joan Joyce Bonter, 70, of Pellston, passed away Dec. 18, 2006, at Charlevoix Area Hospital.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 22, at the New Hope United Methodist Church in Levering. Pastor Matthew Stoll will officiate.

Joan was born March 13, 1936, in Cheboygan, the daughter of Daylis and Marvel (McPhall) Bonter. She grew up in Pellston, where she attended school.

Joan was an avid Detroit Tiger fan and enjoyed shopping, playing cards and bingo. She had also spent some summers at Camp Royale in Traverse City, where she assisted in counseling.

Joan is survived by her mother, Marvel Bonter, a resident at Bay Bluffs; two brothers, Toady Bonter and his wife, Sharon, of Pellston, and Daniel Bonter of Kalkaska; two sisters, Doris Haven and her husband, Dale, of Pellston and Peg Gokey and her husband, Bernie, of Levering; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by a brother, Gary Bonter.

The family suggests memorial donations be made to the Michigan Crippled Children's Fund or to the Cerebral Palsy Foundation.

The family was assisted by the Schiller Funeral Home of Harbor Springs.
