Plan Ahead

Gilroy, Bonnie Joy


Bonnie Joy Gilroy went home with the Lord on September 6, 2021 at age 72. She was born to Robert and Joyce Spencer, on June 26, 1949 in Pittston, Pennsylvania. She married her high school sweetheart, Charles F. (Butch) Gilroy and they had 6 children during their 37 years of marriage. Bonnie was a graduate of Dallas Pa High School where she earned a very prestigious award from Hallmark. She retired as a Specialty Pharmacy Technician.

Bonnie was a woman with many hobbies such as enjoying nature, gardening, music, DIY and art but ultimately, she was best known for being a selfless and Godly woman who loved her family fiercely.

She was more than just a mother to her children; she was their best friend. She taught her children so many life lessons, with the most important being to take time to count your blessings and enjoy the wonderful things God gave us.  From high school to retirement Bonnie would often take time to be in nature; from taking the kids to the park, going kayaking on the lake to going on grand adventures with her best friend Diane. Wherever she went she would always bring a piece of the place back home whether that be a rock to add to her collection, a seashell, a souvenir for a family member or just pictures to share her experience. Bonnie was an amazing and kind woman who never met a stranger. She will always be fondly remembered by all who knew her.

Bonnie is survived by her children Kellyann (Anthony), Charles Jr. (Aziza), Michaela (Michell), Michael, Matthew and Catherine (Edgar); her brothers Randy (Eileen), Kevin (Cindy), sisters Lori (Denny), Michelle and Karen; Her grandchildren, great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.

Bonnie was preceded by her parents, Robert and Joyce Spencer, and her husband Charles Gilroy.

    I am so very sorry for the loss of Bonnie. May God provide peace, comfort and strength to all of her family at this most difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I am glad I had the opportunity and pleasure to work with Bonnie 17 years ago when I first started my job at Caremark Wilkes Barre Pa…she was so nice to me…I will never forget her telling me before she left working at my place…telling me that I should *apply for her lead position* because she believed I had what it would take to do a great job….although I applied for the position but didn’t *succeed*….I treasured Bonnie for *believing in me* to strive forward…without her…I would have never tried…thank you sweet Bonnie for believing in me and for seeing me to have more to give at my job…I will never forget you for this….(Beautiful photo and obituary in honor of Bonnie…I truly know she is now walking the *golden streets in Heaven…she is truly an Angel….it was truly a blessing to have met and known her… my deepest condolences to her family…

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
