Bonnie Jean James Wolf

August 22, 1949 – March 23, 2014

Wolf, BonnieBonnie Jean James Wolf, our “BonBon,” of Edmond, Oklahoma, was born August 22, 1949 at St. Anthony’s Hospital in Oklahoma City.  She left this world for greater things, Sunday, March 23, 2014.

    Bonnie believed in random acts of kindness, and fun adventures.  She attended Guthrie’s Central Elementary School, Pleasant Hill in Oklahoma City and Putnam City Central Jr. High, and was a proud graduate of the Putnam City “Original” High School Class of 1967!  She attended Oklahoma State University and the Oklahoma School of Banking and Business.  Bonnie “bloomed wherever she was planted,” in Big Spring, Texas, Nashville, Tennessee, Birmingham, Alabama, Colorado Springs, Colorado, and Guthrie and Edmond, Oklahoma.  Professionally, she was a part of the Oklahoma Department of Highway Safety, three Ditch Witch dealerships and various other companies working in underground construction.  She spent many years in interior design, and as a buyer and importer of European antiques for Elks Alley Mercantile in Guthrie and Edmond.  Her most recent professional endeavor was as a real estate agent with Century 21 Goodyear Green in Edmond.  She was also serving as co-chair of the 2014 Oklahoma City Symphony Decorators’ Show House in Founders Tower, in support of music education.

    Bonnie loved to travel the world.  Some of her favorite locations included Tahiti, France, Italy, Monaco, Costa Rica and the island of Santorini, Greece.  She also loved projects, long walks, shopping and watching OFC soccer with her grandkids.  Bonnie was a lifelong learner and studied photography, floral design, private investigating, conceal carry, computer applications, oil painting, pottery, bodybuilding, cake decorating, and tap dancing with the Lynda Tarpley Tappers.

    Bonnie’s loved ones include her daughters, Angie Newman and husband Mack, Monica King and husband Chris, and Nancy Wolf, and, of course, her grandchildren, Olivia and Katie Rose Newman, and Bonnie and Wyatt King, all of Edmond, Oklahoma, and all of whom she taught, by her example, to love others unconditionally, and all of her many dear friends.

    Honoring Bonnie’s wishes, no services of any kind will be held.  She will be cremated and cast over one of her favorite travel destinations.  Personal notes, stories, and photographs will be gratefully accepted and may be addressed to Angie Newman, P.O. Box 892167, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma  73189, or emailed to  Donations may be made in Bonnie Wolf’s honor to the Go Red for Women campaign of the American Heart Association, by submitting a gift at and notifying the Association of your tribute to Bonnie at jennifer.seal@heart,org.

    Her family encourages everyone to perform a random act of kindness, today!


  1. Angie, Monica and Nancy,
    I was very saddened to hear of BonBon’s passing. I enjoyed my visits and conversations with her very much in the short time I knew your family. She was a certainly a joy to be around and now there is an obvious void she once filled.
    My prayers for you will be of peace and good memories to share with her grandchildren and carry on with her legacy of helping others and being a joy to everyone.

  2. I met Bonnie several years ago at Big Cedar Lodge with my husband Bob Ptak. I attended a ladies luncheon to which Bonnie took me by the arm and asked me to sit with her at her table. Her kindness was overwhelming and I am sure she had no idea how blessed I was by her acceptance. Throughout that weekend Bonnie would visit with me & include me in all that was going on. The amazing part is the next year at the same function Bonnie was there and again went out of her way to show not only me but my sister in law that same kindness. My sister in law was also amazed at Bonnie’s kindness and friendliness.

    Bob stated this morning that Bonnie is one of the nicest, friendliest and most genuine ladies he had ever met.

    Bonnie and her contagious smile will be missed greatly on this earth.

    Our hearts are with you at this time and prayers of peace sent your way.

    Gods blessing to her children, grand children and all family.
