Lucille was born on July 22, 1928, in Swanville Township, Morrison County, MN, to the late Peter and Marie (Benkowski) OHotto. She graduated from Little Falls Community High School in 1947. Lucille was united in marriage to Eugene B. Bonemeyer on June 18, 1951, at St. Edwards Church, Elmdale, MN. They and their 3 children moved to Little Falls in 1960. After 48 years of marriage and husband Genes passing in 1999, Lucille continued to live in Little Falls until her passing at age 91. She was a member of the Christian Mothers, St. Marys Catholic Church, their choir, and a volunteer at St. Marys School. Lucille was a dedicated employee of Family Shoe Store and of Victor Clothing Company in Little Falls for many years until her retirement. She loved dancing, traveling, reading, playing cards, and crocheting/embroidering. You couldnt find a more immaculate housekeeper. She was an avid sports fan, either attending or watching--especially the Minnesota Twins! Lu cherished being with her loving family, many relatives and friends. She treasured seeing her grandsons and great granddaughters. She also enjoyed helping her family and spending time at their lake homes to fish and take boat rides. Visiting with her nieces and nephews was also very special to her.
